comment Bathroom above the Garage
Waterproofing the garage slab...? Somewhat irrelevant for a bathroom above the garage.

comment How high can I adjust water pressure?
The differential (20 PSI) is generally NOT adjustable. Also, you'd probably find the variance in pressure at point of use obnoxious if the range was that wide. There are a few techniques (variable speed pumps, leaky regulators) at different price points that try to maintain 50 PSI for most of the time you are using water, rather than having the 40-60 variation, even.

comment What's the difference between “physical damage” and “severe physical damage” in the NEC?
Ohh, boy @ThreePhaseEel is gonna put airbags in his car so he can hit the raceways in his garage by hopping! Be sure to take video! If it's out of reach of the car, it's not subject to severe damage. Frankly, I don't think even one right at bumper level really qualifies - a car bumper is not a forklift fork, or a flying lathe chuck, or something else hard, unyeilding, and massive enough to shear conduit. Sure, you'll damage conduit at bumper level if you drive right through the wall, but there are limits to what is reasonable to protect against - and moving it out of bumper level does that.

comment Weight rating for 2x4 shelving
@Tester101 Doesn't change what the shelf will support. Those brackets will fail considerably earlier, but my answer specifically said "and the support structure is adequate." Go have a bonfire of 1 foot 2x4 cutoffs, lit with a straw-man.

comment Bathroom above the Garage
Your answer seems to be to the question "building a bathroom IN the garage", not (as asked, albeit with no useful details yet) ABOVE the garage.

comment Can I use one of the phases in a 2-phase circuit to power a 120v appliance
The circuit is not "two phase" - it's 220V single phase. A common enough misconception.
