garage storage

We just moved into a new place and we need more storage! The garage has enough room for some shelving so we considered the metal premade packs, but decided to build a timber frame to make the most of the space.

Dad (ex Carpenter) gave me a hand to pre build the vertical frames. We used 35 x 70mm pine. It was easily the most cost effective, and will be strong.

Ali was a great help!

Then screwed the vertical frames to the studs on the walls.

That's enough work for the weekend. Still a fair bit to go!

Re: garage storage

Great project @boris, many thanks for sharing. I also posted this morning about storage - it's a constant challenge for many people!

 

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you as part of the community. Looking forward to seeing how your garage shelves turn out and seeing some of your other projects around the house and garden. Please post again soon.
