7 Things the Builder forgot to put in Your Garage...
Even the best new construction garages I've found are lacking... but one day a builder will come along and turn out a proper garage. In the mean time... until builders start coinsulting me about these things... here is a list of things that you should be ready to correct.
Electrical outlets - Three is not enough. For some reason, many builders seem to want to put one outlet on each wall. That isn't enough for ANYONE that is going to do anything in the garage. For a two car garage, seven 110V outlets would be better (two on each side wall and three on the back wall). Add one more for a three bay garage, and three more for a four bay garage (all on the back wall). If you really want to amp it up, add one more above each bay for a cord reel and drop-light. 240V outlets - The number is three... two would be ok, but three would be better. Welder, air compressor, plasma cutter, wood-working equipment. Actually, for a wood-worker, three would be a minimum. Cabinetry - Nice garage cabinetry would set one builder apart from EVERYONE else. The cost would be a couple thousand dollars, ... more
