Turn Your Garage Into a Real Workshop

Make it comfortable and you’ll spend more time there

by Michael Pekovich

Michael Pekovich set out to turn a dark, damp, cold garage into a warm, four-season workspace. With its drafty doors and concrete floor, Pekovich’s uninsulated shop was limited to warm-weather woodworking. Even in the summer, the low ceiling, dark walls, and minimal lighting made the space feel cramped and dreary. But by adding insulation, improving the lighting, and replacing the garage doors with shopmade carriage doors, the space is transformed into a comfortable, year-round workspace.

 Take a guided video tour of Michael's dream shop.
