Thats quite a good sized garage, but a lot of work. Starting to look better already.

Not specifically as it's not a very cold garage anyway.

My basic plans for the garage are:

Refurb OR replace the window
Replace the garage door (possibly higher opening if possible)
Seal up and issues outside the garage (any filling/pointing included) and paint roofline & the roughcast too.

Once the outside is completely watertight, and the inside floor/tanking is completed, I am looking to do the following:

Gyproc the ceiling, with some insulation above it.
Fit new, better lighting.
Sort the electric, multiple sockets and trunked properly (it's RCD's inside the house so ok in that sense).
Sort the plumbing/sink and make that all secure & neat.
On the back wall, I will fit kitchen cabinets along the floor at the wall, a work surface and some wall cabinets too. These will be the main storage.
Bike racks & other higher storage on the walls.
At the entry to the garage will be the rack/tool storage cab with all the car cleaning products and pressure washer etc.

Possibles:

Paint or install garage flooring
The walls - potentially just paint a light colour OR dot/dab Gyproc on the walls, joint fill & paint.

Beyond that, who knows

Rear 3/4's of the floor nearly cured - will be continued tomorrow and Sunday by the builder:

Progress being made. Garage floor almost finished, a few bits to tidy up, back wall crack sorted & sealed around window too, painted exterior roofline 1 coat after cleaning the roof & guttering last night.

Getting there:





Next steps - sorting the electrics, then getting the walls battened & Gyproc'd (wth insulation), bracketing the roof to the walls (as it has, we have now discovered) nothing except it's weight holding it in place (!!!), and then Gyproc (& insulation) on the roof. Then can begin other jobs - sorting the scrappy window out, changing the garage door, doing a bit more exterior work and then the interior build can begin. Oh, and when asking our builder to check out a wall down the driveway as it has some moss in the roughcast a section falling off, turns out the roughcast is hollow behind & not bonded to the brickwork - so that has to come off and be re-done too!!

Will be a while yet

The garage floor is also curing well, and looking reasonably good now. Next step is waiting on a price for all the gyro/insulation inside, exterior side wall on the driveway, wooden fence/gate to the rear of the garage, and tonnes of other jobs, and me sorting the electrics and basic plumbing - and for my OCD, stripping the sink out and cleaning 30 years of cement, oil & crap off it - it's quite a good quality porcelain sink so I hope it will clean up well - any tips appreciated for cleaning it up!

Anyone have good recommendations for ceiling lights for the garage - thinking to replace the single fluorescent strip light with a pair of LED lights, if such a think is available at a decent price/quality...

Yeah - looking forward to it too. It's been a borderline useless area (albeit storing "stuff") to hold the pressure washer, tools, car stuff and various other bits of wood/junk/tables etc - but never safe for a car, bike or anything I don't really want rusting.

It will be great just getting it to a basic steel - new concrete floor, gyproc walls & ceiling, electrics and plumbing sorted and exterior good - then I can start installing storage, painting it and actually using it...

I have the 5ft version of this light which is very good. At this price they are a steal. ( I paid £60 each)
