Required Tools for this Project

Have the necessary tools for this DIY project lined up before you start—you’ll save time and frustration.

Like any major remodel, you'll need scale drawings, a building permit, and all the standard hand and power tools. Specialty garage stores and contractors are available who can do all or part of the job for you, if you're not ready to tackle the whole project yourself.

Required Materials for this Project

Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready ahead of time. Here's a list.

To turn a raw garage into heated workspace, you'll need flooring, insulation, mechanicals, drywall, windows and doors, cabinets, lights, wood trim, and possibly insulated garage doors.
