I'm about to get my amateur radio license (technician class), and with our house not being all that large I was thinking the garage might be a nice place to setup shop... we don't really use it for cars, and currently it just has the mower and some other yard equipment out there. I was wondering if others have converted their garage into a home for their ham shack or computer area without doing an entire room conversion.
The garage is on one corner of the house with one wall being exposed to the outside and the garage door. My idea is if I blow insulation into the attic above garage and also into the one wall, then get a better garage door that seals better, it should be dueable.
Now the catcher is heating and cooling. We live in Texas, so heating isn't generally a problem. During the Summer I was thinking a window unit and a simple space heater during the winter. My concern though is the heat and cold on the equipment. If the garage is insulated okay with a sturdy garage door, I'd think that should work, right?
Just curoius if anyone has ever looked into doing this... the garage is 430 sqft of space we're not using, and it'd be perfect if I could setup shop out there :)
Thanks for any suggestions,
