manage to get a full size truck, tahoe and a bike plus shelves and misc in mine...had to build a shed out back for riding lawn mower, yard stuff and work bench. My garage isn't so much a man cave as it is a place to park my vehicles, however, I do have wall mounted fans and a heater when a ping pong tournament needs to be held.

I have two of the radiant heaters in the shop... they don't do much but run up the electric bills on days like this...
I bought a wood stove but I need to insulate and install it this summer..

Solracer if you have 208-240/1 volt in your garage this heater will heat a 600' area. A lot of guys up north on the yellowbullet (drag race) message board were recommending this heater.

I'm going with a Daikin Heat Pump mini-split for my garage.
