My wife has encouraged me to make use of the extra space in the garage.
I already have a workbench along the left hand wall and a table saw in the adjacent corner.
Even though we have two cars that we leave parked in the garage at all times, we lucked out on getting a two-and-a-half car garage with ample space for working. When I lost my second job 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 and emotionally vulnerable; hiring someone they know who also happens to be their neighbor puts them at ease. Now that I have turned my handyman business into a full fledged second job, I am out in the garage for half of the day sometimes. Now that we’re getting close to the winter season, I’m worried about the 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 offered to use spray foam insulation along the walls and ceiling of the garage. After applying the thick coat of foam insulation, we would paint over it with fresh white paint. It makes the walls look bumpy with the texture of a rock wall, but it keeps the heat inside during the cold winter season.
