Show me your single garage!

So after years and years having a house without even an outdoor tap I am looking to move house, hopefully to one with a nice single garage.
I'm interested to see if any detailers have done anything special with theirs as I'm already thinking what I could do to make a detailers delight!
So, show me what's you've done!

You should check out the Garage/Products Collections section. You’ll find loads of what you’re looking for there.

We've recently (a couple of years ago) moved into a house with a double garage. Currently we have rabbits living in it, so I can't get the cars in there, but I've still made a few light upgrades to help my detailing. Probably my best investment was having a hot and cold tap installed. We're lucky that the garage is attached to the side of the house, so it was a simple case of taking the feeds from under the utility room sink. Makes life much easier not having to take two huge buckets into the kitchen to fill them up, and means I can run a short bit of hose pipe to my pressure washer, rather than having to uncoil the 30 meter hose I was using before to go around to the tap at the back of the house.

I also have a large lockable metal cabinet from Sealey that I can store a bunch of my detailing gear in. That was another handy upgrade, even though it's rammed with stuff now, so needs a sort out.

I so long for a double.My garage is largish for a single by todays stds but it still cost me £££ to get the entrance widened to get the bluddy vehicle in in the first place



Do you intend on garaging your car?If so the only luxuries you will have is a few spanners on the wall and a lawnmower hanging precariously above it in the corner

Garage
White wash, floor paint and some led panel lighting

You won’t be able to swing many cats around but making it look presentable will be easier than making it practical

I am quite lucky with mine, it was built with the intention of turning it into another room, so it is built as a room and has heating. The electric roller door makes a hell of a difference as it is also insulated.

I doubt I'll bother putting the car in there. Just want a to make a nice, clean detailing orientated space.
