I’m already planning to do all of the electrical in conduit along the ceiling, then run a few drops down the outside of the wall. I did put in a flush mount sub panel though, so I could hinge a piece of pegboard or something in front of it and not waste the limited wall space.

My plan is to eventually build a carport onto the front of the garage and kick the car out—but first, I’ve got to clock a lot more woodworking hours.

I hadn’t seriously considered a sink for a wood shop, but I can see the appeal for finishing cleanup. The water heater doesn’t have a drain, but the washing machine is on the other side of that 6’ wall, so I could probably put a utility sink right in front of the water heater.

I’m thinking more and more that the sad old workbench is getting ripped out and I’m putting ply up.
