    And so you don't get herculiner on your hootus /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Anyway, I second the TV. I have a 20" mounted on the wall on a swivel mount so I can watch it from anywhere and it's hooked into my vcr, dvd player, and digital cable in my house. Then I also have 8" 3 way inwall speakers in there that is hooked to my stereo in my house. Makes time go by much smoother...

    Oh, and a sink for sure. Washing greasy hands in the kitchen sink kinda sucks cause you have to clean it up. My dream is a small shower somewhere in my garage, I think I need to add more space /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Remember, if you need help with any of the wiring, plumbed air, etc call me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    a cheap black telephone and phone book. Saves time not having to wash your hand and go inside to call for a part.
    And cheap so its easy to replace when thrown across the room.

    Make sure everybody turns on water. If not you might get that foul stench after a while. Just a thought.

    I have one I bought for my garage and haven't installed yet... It's pretty cool. When closed it looks like a little 6" square blank cover on your wall, then you just pull it open, do your stuff, and flip it back up

    Also.....add lots of overhead storage racks!


    I don't need to tell you how much space truck parts take up...but having floor-to-ceiling shelves sucks because they block your doors from opening up all the way (depending on the width of the garage) Overhead shelving (starting at like 6 feet) will give you places to store old boxes, and crap that you'll just be tripping over anyway....plus it's a good place to stick a couple of old house speakers for the "Man Space Sound System"!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
