Will have both a refrigerator space and a deep basin sink.

Pull Cat5 for a hardwired internet connection. Don't count on the wifi being strong enough to work in the garage. If you have a Cat5 line, you can set up and old computer on your bench for Net Searches / Pandora Music etc...
Good idea, I listen to Pandora in my garage a lot, that or the radio.

Don't know if this was mentioned but did you think about drains in the floor? One under each car or in the center makes cleaning up mess a lot easier.

I gutted/rewired my 2-car garage a couple years back and one of the features I really like is that I can open my garage doors from either end of the garage. I used low voltage lighted doorbell buttons for mine. In between the doors I have one button for each door, so if i'm on the way out I can close the door. Also, i have a button for each door on their respective side of the walk-in door to my basement so I can open the garage door as soon as I'm in the garage from the house. The final detail is that I have the two openers on a dedicated circuit controlled with a lighted switch... at night i turn off the light switch to kill power to the door openers for added security and it's easy to find in the dark because it's illuminated.
My father did this at there house when leaving u just tap a switch and door closes best thing!

I love my Liftmaster jack shaft garage openers. No overhead chain drives to deal with. Mounts right on the shaft of the garage door. The only thing is you need an outlet near where the opener is mounted.http://liftmaster.com/lmcv2/pages/pr...px?modelId=436
