This eliminates fumbling around looking for the switch while leaning over, and holding the entry door open for enough light to find the switch. Even better, it’s inexpensive and easy to do yourself. With basic knowledge of electricity, all you have to do is turn off the breaker that feeds the switch and wire up the new switch the same way. There are no additional wires to worry about. The end result is a mild orange glow that’s easy to find in the dark. Another option is to add motion sensors to your garage lights so they come on as soon as you open the door. You can even get motion bases that screw into standard sockets. Once installed, all you have to do is screw in the light bulb as usual. This is a clever way to have motion activated lighting without having to do any wiring.

Planning and Preparation Just like any other successful ventures, careful planning and preparation for what’s ahead is essential in renovating your garage to a livable space. Have a clear-cut idea of what transformation you wish done in this area. Would you like to turn it into a living room extension, lounge, and children’s play room, study room or office space among others? The kind of construction needed is basically dependent on what type of room you want your garage converted. Thus, a more complex remodeling is needed if you prefer to turn it into another comfort room or bathroom since you need to install drainage system and pipes in the room. You may also need to construct additional walls and put more furniture to transform it completely.

As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.

They provide a surface to work on at a comfortable height and range from simple flat designs to complex, specialty benches designed for specific industries and needs. There is a limitless amount of designs for both custom and pre-manufactured workbenches and one can quickly become overwhelmed when trying to decide on a design. For those people who are handy a custom built workbench can be a fun and very rewarding project. However it can be time consuming and if not done correctly could end up in the garbage pile. Pre-manufactured workbenches can be an economical solution and with countless designs available may be a better choice. This article will focus on design and selection of pre-manufactured workbenches for the home garage and workplace.

In fact, most people tend to use their garage as a catch-all for clutter instead of a useful and practical part of their home. When people have something bulky that they want to keep, but not in their house, the garage is usually where it ends up. Naturally, the garage is the easiest and most convenient place to put it. This is perfectly fine, for a while at least. Eventually, the garage becomes overwhelmingly full of stuff and it becomes more and more difficult to find things.

One ramp goes to each tire and they lift the car about 6" to 18" off the ground. They are reliable supports because the tires rest on them, making a slip or accident almost impossible.

If you want to stick with something that lasts, then you can go for those garage tiles. Another way of beautifying your abode is through the use of beautiful outdoor mats.
