Project uno? More storage. We now have a tiny garage that we put up some shelving in. Let's talk about how this = awesome. It's so nice to have a place to put some of that stuff you need, but not very often.
Here is our lovely tiny garage. As you can see, there isn't much room for storage in there.
I used my friend Sketchup to model everything up. It really helps me when trying to figure out how many materials we will need.
We secured the horizontal braces to the ledger (back 2x4) before we hung it so that we could drill through the back way... you know what I mean? (actually we hung the ledger first, then realized we needed access to the back of the ledger first... whoops!) If you were using hangers on all the braces, then you could put the ledger up first.
We now have a lovely place to put all our junk! We're thinking it's the perfect place to hang our bikes. Great right?
