I pulled down all the fluorescents in my 3 car garage and put up these:


My garage looks like an operating room now with just 4 of these lights. I enjoy working on my stuff late in to the evening sometimes and it's very satisfying to have proper lighting.

I keep saying every winter that I'm going to install a built-in 220V heater out there. Maybe this year is the year for that.
I use a kerosene heater to keep the garage toasty warm and to make soups and stews to maximize the BTU usage.

Looks like you are cooking for a platoon. 馃馃槂

My shop has a propane ceiling heater in the main heated area, and a 220 electric ceiling heater in the smaller heated area. About 1/3 of the space, plus the loft are unheated.

That's one of the problems with vegetable soup is that it makes soooo much even when you try to scale back.

Thanks again for everyone's help. I think I have things at a starting point which I can live with. I feel that this is something that will always continue to evolve.

I didn't like the cheap metal socket rails, since I couldn't read the size of the socket. I found socket rails where each socket can be rotated. I can now rotate each socket so I can read its size easily. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08ZMJNT6S?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details The ends also removable, so you can make a rail of mixed type (1/4, 3/8, etc.). I now have rail for all of my torx sockets which are comprised of 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 sockets. Here are some pictures. I'm currently using my rolls for my open-end wrenches rather than get different organizers for them.

Here are some photos for some drawers.

Looking good.

Keep an eye out for wrench organizers they save space and keep things tidy and are not a lot of money.
