o yea... while you're dreaming big... go buy an old refrigerator and cover the outside w/ checker plated aluminum... fill it w/ beer and hot pockets... that way since you'll have a heater and a bathroom... you will welcome your wife to kick you out... i estimate that one man can live off a single refrigerator full of beer and hot pockets for at least 2 months... unless of course you drink too many beers too fast then you'll inadvertently eat too many hot pockets thusly shortening your long term survivability

o yea and on the garage door opener thing... most john deere mowers are perfect for this... under the bottom of the seat is a great place... protected from the weather and easily accessible... my friend had his there and i pulled into his drive way and he was mowing his yard and pulled the lawnmower onto the concrete leading to the small door and the door began to raise... he was really nonchalant about hitting the opener button... i was impressed

Anybody got some good ideas to incorporate into a garage? I'm limited to 1200 sqft. because of the covenants in our neighborhood, no 2story garage and it has to match the house which will be cultured stone and Cement board siding. But other than that, I think it's wide open. I'm thinking 40'wide and 30' deep or somewhere close to that, space shouldn't be a problem. I think i'd like at least 2 overhead doors (Height suggestions anyone?) and 1 side service door. I plan to pull power to the garage, but most likely not water. Maybe gas so I can have a heater, but that will depend on the cost to pull a natural gas line.

I'm in the process of searching through the 85pages in this thread for ideas... Any help would be awesome! thanks!
One thing that I would consider a "must" is a 12' overhead door if you are going to store a boat in there with a tower. That way you don't have to drop your tower all of the time. I would also insulate it and if you can afford it sheetrock it at the same time, especially if you are planning on a heater. Also, depending on what kind of heat you plan on eventually putting in there, make sure you have enough power going in there.

I suppose a guy needs 14' walls to get a 12' door in there when you factor in the Header etc.?

You are absolutely correct on that one. Not sure if that would be considered a "2 story" garage or not.

Good point, I'll have to check the covenants again. I believe it just states no living quarters above the garage, but I'll double check.

Keep the ideas comin'!

If you can have the 14' sidewalls you may want to consider having one side of the garage a "workshop" area. I did this in mine and built in a loft over the workshop for storage, etc.

build in your storage... and don't use those wuss bag wire shelving things that are made for closets... they simply won't hold up... i would get some heavier duty wire shelving and build you a rack out of 2x6s on the outside and 2x4s on the inside so that the wire shelving sits on the 2x4 and is held in place on the front and back by the 2x6... they work great and the "lip" provides great hold for anything including balls and ropes and whatever else... i do not suggest a solid bottom on the shelving material however b/c the dust will collect exponentially worse on the shelf itself and on whatever is on it

plugs and electrical cord reels mounted in the ceiling... a friend of mine has 2 of these and they are invaluable... he only has a 10 ft ceiling in his garage but to reach up... grab a string... and have an electrical cord in your hand w/o having to grab on off a shelf and find a plug and have to coil it back up is absolutely awesome
