Before you have to much stuff hung on the walls ya' might think about getting 5 gallons of white paint for the walls. That will really brighten things up. Check CL materials for used kitchen cabinets from remodels, usually pretty cheap and work well. Otherwise it's perfect!!

X2- our attached garage was “paneled” - white paint made a huge difference in lighting.

I’m hoping to find the funds for drywall this year sometime. That paneling is definitely not for outdoor use so it has warped pretty badly. Unfortunately I’m going to be replacing the roof next weekend due to some neglect from the PO.

Drywall = even better. Especially if removing the paneling allows the insulation situation to be examined. My 2 car detached is insulated....all it takes is a $30 1500W Wally World electric plug in heater to keep it at 55F-60F through the coldest temps here in NC, perfect "working" temp.

That’s what I’m hoping for. It is insulated but I’m not sure how ruined the left side is. The PO never trimmed any trees back or installed gutters and almost all of the fascia and soffit boards are rotten and in various stages of degradation. Water comes down the roof and runs down inside the wall then out into the floor. Hoping to get it all done next weekend.
