Lightbulb Garage Mahal

Hey guys (and girls) i dont know how many of you get the magazine european car but in one of their last issues they had a section on "Garage Mahal" about a guy who had an extremly nice looking garage. so it got us thinking about how old and sketchy our garage is so now we are completly remodeling our garage (with a radiant heated slab of concrete ) since we live in montana it gets quite cold so that will be nice. so i was wondering if you guys could help me out with any new ideas about what else to put in it any ideas would help (or even stuff not to do)

That's interesting, what kinda system is it that powers the radiant heating?

There's a company called Legalett, that circulates warm air in the concrete, with a fan in a electric unit or a water heater.. It's pretty cool, and also really cheap.

I'd probably just put in some really nice shelves in there and maybe some music and a fridge

Hey thanks for the replys guys the heating is with a electric water heater it will be soo nice having warm concrete
the fridge will be a great idea and nice set of shelves will be a definate because im about 6' 8" and high shelves would be extremly nice so i dont have to bend over.....
And a good sound system is definatly a must
keep with the ideas thanks agian for the links they are helping!
