Kirby,

My garage is much like you describe yours, except mine faces south!

The inside of my garage door would get so hot you couldn't touch it. I insulated it using that 3/4inch yellow foam stuff with the silver on one side. It comes in 4x8 foot sheets. I cut it to fit into the sections of the door, and glued it in place using construction adhesive. Made a huge difference.

My garage also has a couple of small windows, so I put a 10,000 btu A/C unit in one of them. If I fire it up in the morning before it gets too hot out there, it will keep the temp tolerable.

I think the next best bang for a buck would be to insulate the ceiling. I have thought about that blown in stuff, but have never priced it.
