Room by Room: Garage and Workshop
Begun on 7 April 2016, the garage was the first thing I built. It was the most logical place to start, and when the roof went on three weeks later, it provided me with around 500 square feet of protected work space.
At 16 x 32 feet, this is technically a 1½ car garage. I gave it generous proportions so I could have a space to work on projects (such as woodwork and cabinetry) without having to pull the car out.
A workbench will run the full width of the garage on the house end. The space will have plenty of outlets (eight total) and plenty of light (ten four-foot double fixtures).
The roll-up door is nine feet, instead of the usual eight, to make life easier. The door will also be windowed to admit natural light.
After pretending I live here for a while, I've made some subtle changes to how the garage is laid out.
The ceiling was sheetrocked on 6 February 2019.
