They definitely are bright! Depending upon the size of your garage, you may find them adequate for most tasks.

this is more along the lines of what I was thinking. do these have to be hardwired or do they just connect to the existing fixtures sockets somehow? i'm a noob at electrical
They're pretty easy to wire in. Shut power off, remove existing light socket and wire in using existing wire. If you want more than two, you'll need to add additional boxes and spaced appropriately. Wiring is generally very easy to do. Best to find someone whom knows how to do it properly and learn from them.

My offering....










The concrete slab was already there, even though the council refused to admit its existence! I welded up the framework from leftover C section at work. Paid for the cladding and 2nd hand roller door and lights, and got the windows, door, and pallet racking for free from demolition jobs. No fancy floor paint, but it cost me Au$1600 all up.

Nice set up Ben.

Yep. Far too rich for my broke ass. I can appreciate it. But, damn, I don't want to think of how much money was spent on that.

Ben's got a very nice setup. I have to admit that if I move into another house, the garage is going to have skylights. IMO, it makes a huge difference in lighting and most days, that's all that's needed. I'm not one to have my garage door open for others to see in it.

I know this is a little off topic but, any of you guys have saunas at the house? My garage isnt quite big enough for 2 full size cars so Im thinking of getting my girl a sauna for the garage, something simple like a 2 person sauna.

I have officially been inspired to do more with my garage

But the luxury4play.com post killed most of it...
