Subject: Cooling off workshops

It's that time of year with the temperatures (and humidity) in the 90's. My workshop is in a two-car garage attached to my house, and except for a fan or two, it is stifling in there, even at night when I do a lot of what little I do in the workshop (pens and small stuff mostly).

Does any one have any ideas about cooling things off? I've thought about an air conditioner, but my house has brick veneer and I don't want to do anything too permanent to the one outside wall, like punching a big hole through the brick. The garage doors face to the west into the setting sun, so keeping them open when I'm working isn't much help, not to mention the security issues. I don't want my neighbors looking in there at my machinery. I've looked at one of those portable coolers at Northern Tools, but they are very expensive. I have also thought about somehow hanging a small air conditioner from the ceiling, but it would have to vent into the attic, which is even hotter than the garage below. And I don't have a lot of extra electrical capacity anyway.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
