Ideas/Pics of Garage/Workshop Lighting

Looking for ideas for lighting for my soon to be built garage. Size is 24x40, and I want to use it as a functional workshop also. I was thinking florescent tubes. Any suggestions? Thanks.

RE: Ideas/Pics of Garage/Workshop Lighting

Fluorescent fixtures are going to give you the most light for the buck. If the garage is unheated (or not heated constantly) and you live in a colder climate, you might want to invest in low temperature ballasts. I'd tell you to stay away from the cheap "workshop" fixtures as well.

Without knowing how you're going to lay things out, it's a little hard to make specific recommendations.
