I don't know if you can add windows to your garage door but if so, hang lights directly above the windows when the garage door is open.

I have the same problem. I am looking at putting in supports so that the door goes above the supports which will have lights mounted to them. They will work with the door open or closed.

Good idea - especially if your door is more than 7 feet high!

Knowing you Rick, your new space will look incredible! Your perfectionism is, always, impressive.

We need pics, now!

When I first thought of doing this I was bothered that the doors on either end of the room were not in alignment as you can see from the last pic. Then I figured I'ld just put in some curves. A bit of figureing on the angles to cut. Turned out to be 11 1/2 degrees. Probably would look better with actual curved cuts, but I wasn't about to start trying to cut curves with a jigsaw or knife. Would be very tough to get the mating piece to fit tight I think.....Anyway, double yellow in the turns. No passing

On either side will be blue and white checked pattern. I took a blue tile to Home Depot and had them match the color. Thats whats on the walls. Matches pretty good. In the last pic you can see the blue and white tiles. Thats todays project.

Looking great liked that you sanded the joints I'd use a wee bit more glue given that you're going directly on OSB (or prime the floor).
For the curved idea, I'd make a template, actually two in this case, from kydex/something, then trace with a knife- it's funny how much of a steady hand one can develop with practice
