O.K., so this section is for the Guys only – maybe I should password protect it …
In all seriousness, the garage does not have to be furnished, but it should be finished like the rest of the home.
This means that the walls and ceilings should be textured and painted to match the rest of the home and the Garage should look nice.
Just because it’s a Garage is no excuse to trash the concrete during construction or otherwise make a mess of things. And, quite honestly, I personally always enter my home through the garage.
The Front Door is for guests, the Garage is for me – I want it to look nice.
