Your garage is much more than just a place to park cars. It’s often toolshed, a warehouse, a workshop – and quite possibly – your favorite place to hang out with your friends.
That’s why keeping a garage tidy is not always easy – especially without adequate storage. But with a little vertical creativity, even the tiniest garage can be orderly.
Is your garage driving you crazy because of the clutter it’s accumulated? You might find the answer to your organizing problem in your garage ceiling!
These ceiling storage systems are the answer to all the clutter in your garage. It’s a clever way for maximizing space in your garage. Store items that the family doesn’t use too often, like outdoor camping equipment, holiday decorations, and extra bedding.
You can choose between the sliding system and the conventional ceiling shelving unit. It all depends on what you’re planning to store. Consider how frequently you would need those items and how heavy they are.
If you think the sliding system is for you, here are the things that you’ll need…
- 2×4 Lumber
- 4×8′ sheet of 3/4″ Plywood
- 1×2 x 8′ Pine Stop Strip
- Carpenter’s Glue
- 1/4″ x 3-1/2″ Lag Screws and Washers
- 2″ Wood screws
- 3″ Wood Screws
- Plastic Totes
- Measuring Tape
- Miter Saw
- Cordless Drill
- Circular Saw
- Socket / Ratchet SEt
- Stud Finder
- Drill Bit Set
- Safety Glasses
