The 220 v recepticles were probably put in for shop equipment of some type. Now you also have a puzzle if you have three 220 circuits in the box labeled garage because you've only found where two of them go.
Just your typical Texas sized, 3-car garage:
800 square feet
17 ( give or take a few ) wall / ceiling receptacles.
2-car Industrial type rollup-door
1-car standard garage door
central vac ( the vac is for the whole house, but the garage
has a couple of inlets )
central air ( the house has 3 units / zones... one is just for the
garage and my 12x18 home office / media room)
The original owner/design was a car guy's garage... going to have a
lift and other car things... that guy never took ownership of the
property and it's been little used over the years. Quite a change
from the 2-car garage I've had for the last 15+ years. This will
be a nice change of pace.
Getting a garage door opener for the 2-car rollup door will be a challenge...
right now it's on a pull chain. I also don't have a lot of attic storage
because of the 12 ceiling.... I would have been happy with a 8 foot ceiling
and 800 square feet.
I'm going to have to put up some type of loft
storage for my christmas tree / lights / and what not.
