If you're planning a garage addition, you know there are so many options and features that are available.

Some garages only come with the garage door and a door into the house. It's much more convenient to also have a side door that leads to your yard so you don't have to open the bulky garage door every time you need something when you're outside.
Consider installing storage trusses instead of standard trusses. The price is about $25 more per truss which makes it very worth it for the storage space you gain.
Fluorescent lighting is great for garages and are generally inexpensive depending on the type that you pick out. You may want to look into portable lights too so you can move them around depending on whatever project you are working on.
No light compares to natural lighting so consider installing windows for your garage addition. Another benefit to windows is to have a nice breeze if you are working in the garage and don't want to open your garage door.
Coding laws say you only have to have the wall attached to the house dry walled, but it's inexpensive and beneficial to drywall the other walls too. It looks better plus you can easily hang up such things as pegboard for organizing tools.
Finishing the floor can take a boring garage to a nice garage for relatively little money. You can apply an epoxy glaze over your concrete floors for an upgraded look. Another option is garage floor tiles. Depending on the kind you get they can ease strain on your feet and back while also being easier to clean.
Some other things you can do to take your garage to the next level are adding in some extra features that you don't really need, but will definitely come in handy. A sink is very helpful if you are going to be doing a lot of work, not only for cleaning but for other projects such as tiling with a wet saw. An air compressor is great to fill up the air in your tires or to power tools such as drills.
With these suggestions, you can get the most bang for your buck when you have your garage addition built.
