Storage! Glorious Storage!
Mike has been busy this past week. He has been busily constructing a storage area upstairs in our garage. Our house, being over 100 years old is sorely lacking in storage of any kind. We seem to have lots of places that could be storage..but no real system or shelves to make the storage organized...which is irritating. I don't like piles of things..I prefer things put away in such a way that I can lay my hands on what I need if I happen to need it. This room is doing just that for me.
The first shelf 30" off the ground and 30" deep...giving us space for BIG totes on the shelf...and room for tents and Army stuff under the shelf. The other two shelves 24" in between and 24" deep. Enough room for regular totes and boxes. On the facing wall we put in a storage shelving unit we had that fits milk crates perfectly.
On one of the walls Mike installed peg board so we can hang stuff like bags and helmets, and he even installed two lights! It took almost the whole week to accomplish, and its not pretty..but its functional and thats what matters. Now we'll work on tearing down what we need to in the house and installing floors for the apprasial and we'll really feel like we've accomplished something :-D
