Looking for Home Gym Advice

Sorry in advance if this is considered off-topic.

I close on a new (old) house on Friday, and once I'm moved in, I plan on turning the detached garage into a training area (just striking for now - may work on a fancy throw-friendly floor down the line) and I'm looking for advice on outfitting it.

Ringside tends to be my go-to brand for most of my boxing gear, but if anyone has any particular experience with different brands of heavy bags or, especially, thai bags, I'd love to hear about other options. I'm also looking for recommendations on matting - the garage will have to double as a light-duty workshop, so I need some form of easily removable (folding or rolling, I guess), but durable mat.

Also, if anyone has experience with water-filled bags, I'd love to hear about that.

Any thoughts are appreciated. And if anyone out there has done something similar with their garage\basement\living room, feel free to use this thread to wax philosophic about it.
