    It can be done with doing some yourself for fairly reasonable money. I have a 24x24 garage that's about 150 feet from the house that I did exactly the same thing. Keep in mind that I'm only using half the garage being a game room. Here's a list of what it cost me to build.

    Divider wall (wood only) $178.00
    Electrical with new 200 amp panel. $346.00
    This includes 3 20amp circuits down 3 different walls
    New ac unit for entire garage. $2476.00
    Got lucky and knew a ac guy to help install. Paid him $500
    Insulation for only the 12x24 side including ceiling insulation. $650
    Sheet rock with mud and paint. $324.00
    New double door. $689
    I didn't keep all receipt but spent about $300 for locks, interior door and lighting.

    Keep in mind that I did most of the work my self which can save a ton of cash. Installed indoor outdoor carpet months later but dont have a receipt for some reason. Good luck

    Quoted from Gumby510:

    For heating and cooling look into a split system. I put one in my garagecade in Vegas. Cost was 1200$ plus install of the electrical. A window unit will not cut it.

    I wish I would have looked at this before installed a standard split unit.
