My partner has encouraged me to make use of the extra space in the garage.
I already have a workbench along the left hand wall & a table saw in the adjacent corner.
Even though the two of us have various cars that the two of us leave parked in the garage at all times, the two of us lucked out on getting a several-and-a-half vehicle garage with ample space for toiling. When I lost my minute task at a call center, I started taking handyman work in my small gated community. There are a large number of senior citizens living here that are uncomfortable hiring any random worker to enter their homes. These people are physically & emotionally vulnerable; hiring someone they believe who also happens to be their neighbor puts them at ease. Now that I have turned my handyman supplier into a full fledged minute task, I am out in the garage for half of the day periodically. Now that we’re getting close to the Winter season, I’m anxious about the cold hot & cold temperatures outside. When it gets down to zero degrees, it’s going to be hard to work in the garage outside without my hands going numb. My father used to work in the HVAC industry so I asked him what his opinion is regarding my options. I need a space to work from that isn’t completely exposed to the elements outside. Thankfully, he had a solution to my problems. He gave to use spray foam insulation along the walls & ceiling of the garage. After applying the thick coat of foam insulation, the two of us would paint over it with fresh pale white paint. It makes the walls look bumpy with the texture of a rock wall, however it keeps the heat inside during the cold Winter season.
