A couple of years ago I wrote a post about my wish list for garages.  This stuff isn’t rocket science, but it also seems to escape most builders…  There are a few out there that hit a few of these things, but it is a rarity to see a garage in a newer home that has all of these touches.

I’ve actually written a lot of posts about making garages better, both for builders and renovators.  (Keep in mind that I’m not a builder… I’m a user.  I USE my garage, like many of my clients).

So,  take a look and let me know what you think.

Hi Lane~  My husband would agree totally.  I just want them to build them bigger so you can get in and out of each car and fit more than just your cars in there!

I certainly wouldn't mind the option of a pit in one of the bays for changing oil and transmissions. But more than one 220 volt outlet would be wonderful.

Lane - I wish more homes had built in storage cabinetry and tool organizers so that more sellers would have their garages a bit more organized.

Vickie - By "more that just cars", I assume you mean tools, right? Now household stuff or yard junk...  ;^ )

Todd - The problem with pits is heavier than air gases and ventilation...  Lifts are cooler... 

Sam - There are a lot of builders missing the boat by not offering cabinetry as an upgrade...

Lane - I am doing some updates to my 30 x 90 garage / hot rod shop.  New bath, real estate workspace so I can do a little multi tasking in the shop, new extra tall garage door and a new automotive lift system are in the works.  Fun times ahead and I will be sure to post some photos as the transformation starts taking place.
