Default All the right moves?

I have bought a home with the following conditions. A. Garage with only two outlets. One at the light switch and one overhead for the garage door motor. I wish to install a run from the switch, down the wall and add about 4 new outlets for work bench use and another short run from the moter over close to the wall with a outlet or two in the ceiling for hanging shop lights. B. Unfinished basement with just two ceiling lights where I want to run a line from the light to the wall and down the wall adding outlets by attaching the boxes to a board and gluing the board to the wall with a couple dabs on adhesive. This for temporary power. I expect this would not be up to code and you known how "temporary" sometimes works out.
Is my project the way to go for my use? Any better suggestions? Thanks so much.

I's suggest that you read a good book on basic wiring. Both of the projects you describe are easy to do, especially if the walls are open to add wiring. My favorite DIY book on wiring is:

Amazon.com: Wiring a House (For Pros by Pros): Rex Cauldwell: Books

Check at your local library, too for basic wiring books.
