If I had, say a warehouse to move my shop into while I finished the garage as a dedicated shop space I would do the following…

#!. Yank every single bit of sheet rock off of the exterior walls. #2. Insulate #3. Run a sub panel and power circuits where they need to go. #4. Strip the floor dead bare, and do an epoxy coating on it. In all likelyhood something neutral like Beige. Not my preference, but certainly would make the house easier to sell in the long run. #5. Rip down the drywall around the attic ladder, pull out current attic ladder and install a 30” HEAVY DUTY insulated ladder / framing. #6. Re rock the whole thing. #7. Finish mounting my ceiling lighting so that the anchors are there. #8. Pull the ceiling lighting, and outlet covers. #9. Prime, prime, prime. #10. Paint. Preferrably an interior semi gloss pure white. At least 2 coats to insure even color. #11. Reinstall lighting, outlet covers etc… #12. Install “tool stacker” rack. #13. Install lumber rack #14. Install dust collection ductwork, cord winders, and hose reels. #15. Install peg boards, clamp racks, etc… #16. Move tools, lumber etc… back in. #17. Insulate the garage doors. #18. Get it disasterously messy again with projects.
