Start with finishing off her parking area, plugs, insulation, ceiling and floor epoxy. Make the epoxy a light color it helps with the lighting. She’ll appreciate all your effort at making her stall nice and attractive.

I built a counter with round corners and some nice cabinets just for her. They’re all stained, varnished, nice and pretty just the way she likes. SWMBO only had to gripe about the garage being dark when she pulled in at night. I hung a 10 minute motion light on the wall for her. I’ve also got the majority of my stuff on mobile bases. I move my boat into the back side of the garage during the winter months. Being able to move things around has proven to be of great benefit in my half of the garage. When need be I can spread out to do a big project then move back to my half of the garage. I only have to make 3 to 5 times suggesting an improvement to the garage and I pretty much get it. Oh yeah, I make sure to add how much nicer it will be for her!!! Ya got to work the presentation Man, work it good and smooth!!!
