Ripped out all of the inside paneling, nails, etc from the walls. Took out the old door and frame, took down the garage door opener. Going to replace Both garage doors with insulated ones. Here is what the guy at Lowes told me to do with the ceiling.
4x 7" tall beams span the garage 4' apart. Use these to create a ceiling. Insulate the ceiling, leave the "attic" space above vented and do nothing with it. Get some cheap lat board and screw it in place above to create a grid of supports to roll out some R-30 like a blanket on top of the 7" beams
Then use the 7" of space below the insulation in-between the beams to mount lighting etc. And install a drop ceiling on the underside of the beams. The only problem is the current garage doors would hit the drop ceiling. I need to figure out a configuration where the garage door operation does not interfere with the ceiling. Has anyone done this before? I will have to get a professional out to install the new garage doors as the existing ones look like someone left their level at home.
My current plan this week is to get an electriction to look at the garage and tell me where an electric sub box would go. Then I can start wiring up the outlets and boxes to a central point where the sub box would be. Then I can start insulating the walls and drywalling them as well.
Suggestions on drywall vs green board? Suggestions for insulation R value for side walls? Suggestions for R value in garage door?
I plan on putting the brewing equipment in the back left corner of the garage to the left of the back window and work bench visible in the picture. Above it I want to put a ventilation fan like the ones over a stove range in a kitchen. In the center of the roof just above the back window is a 6" pipe that vents to the outside. I could easily duct the vent fan to this.
I was thinking of running 2 outlet boxes on each side and 3 on the back wall. Maybe 2x double or quad halogen light boxes in each side of the garage? I will have more pictures of the inside of the garage as soon as I get them off of my camera.
