SO close to being done. Needs the brick finished on the one side and the lighting/electric finalized. Also the gutters put on.

Then I have the space between the house and garage that I'm putting pavers down on
Then the grading and asphalt work

I'm going to insulate bit by bit and do pegboard at the far end where the 90Q is in the pics:

and got the door opener working:

that looks VERY NICE.

i do like how it is integrated to the house.

mine is much more utilitarian in nature / use.

More Progress:

I got the walls all insulated and pegboard everywhere!

Brought my workbench up from the basement (well - half of it so far) and got some cheap home depot cabinets for the main bench section.

Now just need to organize everything and put stuff away- but it's miserably hot these next couple days

Looking good Ben! Now all it needs is a car lift. If you need better lighting I came across these. I don't have them so I can't say how bright they are.

try Walmart for LED lighting. i do have 10 of those Costco ones, got at half off 19.99. limit 10, almost turned around and went back in for 10 more but didnt.

but this light at Walmart, 8 footer $37ish each singly, shipped. 639 for 20 of them, and that is more than i will need for the 60x40 shop i am building!!

seriously this is only 3 of these 8 ft tubes... notice the distribution pattern on the wall. plenty of light.

Things are looking really good. Excellent work!!

I'll chime in about my cheap lighting in my small garage. One of the best small investments so far. Old photo.

Pretty much finished now - a few pics of the fully moved into garage and the patio that just got finished linking the deck I built a couple years ago to the new patio space between garage and house:
