The other half for the half car.


Thick enough floor for a lift.
Enough ceiling height for said lift.
Heated floor.
Plenty of lighting.
Loft or second floor to store stuff.

Decide what you want for a lift and plan around that . Does it need a pit , extra floor thickness or pads etc. Make sure its an insulated garage door. You want cooling too. How small is the service for your house?. Never get a 7ft wide door, always 8ft if they are singles.

a shitload of lights and plugs.   I curse the person that built my garage with only 2 outlets.  Mine garage is also car and half, I do wish it was a bit longer.   Buick doesn't leave much room on either end to move around.  So I'd say, build it as big as they'll possibly let you.

Buick is 16ft. Add 2ft min for the end you aren't workin on, say 6feet for the other end.
A minimum of 25 feet long? Prolly not enough...

Subpanel in the garage and everything fed off that so your breakers are near by.

Definitely will be longer. Deck is beside it...so width will be an issue.

Wire it like a kitchen- outlets 3 feet apart and one breaker per one or two outlets but put adjacent outlets on different breakers. Split outlets would be nice but 3 conductor wire gets pricey.

No matter what the intentions are at time of pour...   put pex tubing in the slab.   Once it's poured, you can't go back and add that.

A small rocket stove could easily heat water to make the floor warm for free.   Nobody want's to lay on a cold slab.     Oh, and insulate the perimeter of the slab for that reason too.

speaking from experience, Use Roxal for insulation as it's mold resistant and won't absorb moisture like pink fibreglass. Make sure you vapour barrier the hell outta it so it's air tight = nice n warm (no drafts)

Put all the outlets 4feet up. Low they just get wet and you are going to pile crap against the wall or change you mind about where the bench goes.
