Hot and Cold supply are easy to route even if they are far away.

The tricky thing is your drain. How close is your proposed sink to the nearest drain vent/stack?

Remember if you have plumbing in the garage it must be heated.

Couldn't you use a remote Shut off system, such as used for laundry rooms? Push the button, water flows for a period set by the timer. As for the drain, depending on how far from the garage, you could run a drain pipe against the wall to the door. It really depends on what you are going to use the wash sink for.

the picture is a little vague...

as stated before, waterlines would be relatively easy to get where you want them, and depending on how things look up above, the drain might not be too difficult either.

It's really hard to tell where the sink is going to go in relation to your drainage system, but basically you're going to need a 3x2 wye cut in somewhere on that 3" line in the vicinity of your laundry sink drain, then whatever fittings you need to get the laundry sink to that location, 2" drain up to the trap arm, and 1-1/2" vent out the roof, or tied into the bathroom stack if possible, and/or depending on how many other fixtures the 2" vent is currently serving. We also always put a cleanout right under the trap arm as well.
