Painting in the garage?

My concern with it being under the kiddo's room is fumes from primer or sealer. I would try to do that outside, or if wind is an issue, at least next to the open garage door.
Your wife is right that the door opening should not bother the child, she needs to learn to sleep with the normal noise of life going on around her.

As for noise, my wife and I subscribe to the "Bruce Willis" method of conditioning children. When they a little and get into the pass the heck out and enter a coma nap, put on a load action movie (Die Hard, the Matrix anything exciting and loud) and play it. My kids now sleep through anything. Getting them up for school in the morning is another story.

Be aware, that will hep to some degree, but it won't have a large impact. Most garage walls are insulated between the garage and the living space, not the outside walls. This is mostly to insulate the living space from the heat generated by your vehicle once you pull it into the garage. I know because of many years in the home building industry. Rarely do builders insulate the outside walls of a garage. It save on the building expense.
I'm in a townhome, so all walls are insulated except for the door...that's why I was excited for the door insulation kit.

Heck, I would have added a couple of hvac vents in the garage ceiling and added it to the home environmental control. Geee, how '80s would that be. :)

Here is the space I'm looking at eventually having.
We're on the left. The builders actually did this right. There is insulation on all three interior walls. I don't know about the ceiling though. I will attest that the room above the garage is significantly warmer during the day. Other than the garage door itself, the other egress is on the back wall into our house. After insulating the garage door, I was thinking that when I was in there hobbying it up, I'd leave the door into the house open. So far, it's far below intolerable during the heat of the day. When winter comes, I'll see how cold it gets, and consider a space heater. Now, for the meantime, this thread will die and fade into oblivion until I land supplemental employment to feed the habit.
