I second the recommendation for a mini-split AC. The mitsubishi units usually have heat included and they are far more efficient than a large window unit. Plus you keep the window for the shoulder seasons.

Build on!

I will take a look. I dabble in the construction industry so I can reach out to some suppliers.

Started tinkering this weekend.

I put up a sub panel for the following circuits.
1. Dedicated 20 amp for A/C window unit
2. 20 amp outlets
3. 15 amp lighting circuit
4. 240 for the compressor
5. 15 amp garage door and misc task lighting

My good neighbor gave me 3 industrial LED's, he is working on getting me LED task lighting.

Nice! I love the lights - they look like they are bright but probably do not give off the heat of a flourensent.

I will start patching up the outside over the next month. I want to make sure I am sealed up right before I close up the walls on the inside. I am going with plywood on the walls, and painting them white.

Tom,
When I lack motivation I read some of the build threads here for inspiration.
Garage Gallery - The Garage Journal Board

Lots of great ideas gleaned from others projects.

Doug,

I started reading some of those pages and poached some ideas. The reason I posted here is because this group is usually more reasonable than some of the other forums. I also value the opinions of people here. In the end I hope to have a garage that leaky Land Rovers/Owners can come to be tinkered on as a group.

If its not too late i'd add 3 more 220 circuits. When I built my garage I installed 2 220s and I'm constantly unplugging and replugging stuff. I wish I had installed 4 220 circuits.

Curious what folks here have done with their concrete garage floors. Was thinking about painting them but not sure.

I would only paint a garage floor if you get the super heavy duty stuff that they use in auto shops. Also keep in mind that a painted floor is really dangerous if you aren't wearing shoes that have oil resistant soles since, let's be honest, all Land Rovers leak. You don't want your wife walking across the garage and falling because of a couple of drops of oil.

YMMV but painting a floor makes it lot easier to clean with a broom, the other major change is lighting. Its amazing how bare concrete just soaks up light instead of reflecting it. Even the worst floor paint makes a huge difference with lighting. That said, like Jimmy , I hate a slippery floor.

The floors in this garage are fairly beat. I will do a cleaning with muriatic acid and see what I have . The plywood walls will get painted bright white. Hopefully plywood will start going up very soon. My goal is to be weathered in prior to winter.
