Nice work.

I was once given a tour of a cabinet shop that had a good solution for your space/storage problem.

They had no inside storage at all. They had a gravel lot and a huge (old) fork lift. When they got a job, it was assigned to a shipping container which sat in the lot. Anything to do with that job went in the container. If special materials arrived before the build began, it went in the container. If cabinet boxes were done before doors, no problem, just put them in the container. If the house was delayed for 2 months, no problem. The finished cabinets sit in the container, ready to go. When the install was launched, they lifted the container onto a flat-bed truck, lashed it down and drove to the installation site. Their install teams (3 men, as I recall, on a team), just had to pull everything out of the container and do the install.

The containers were rented (was a few years ago) for $50/month – and paid for themselves well.

Now they had about 40 guys working in their shop and did about $1.5 million / month ten years ago, so it was a big shop, but I don’t see why something similar couldn’t work for a smaller shop (except for the expense of keeping the fork lift).
