I have already shown you all some pictures of my disaster area garage. My challenge is to make as much use of vertical storage as possible. My storage solutions have to reduce chaos. What good does it do to have space and jam all manner of things into that area. You may end up with floor space for a while but the first time you need something from the bottom of a mammoth pile, the Whole durn thing goes sideways.
I was thrilled with the recent projects about rolling storage. They made great sense, they were inexpensive to build and they could be moved! That is a super attractive feature to me. My garage storage is going to be on wheels wherever possible. Thank you LJ’s for the great ideas!
I know that top notch casters are fairly expensive so I tried an experiment. I used a harbor freight coupon and bought 4 of their 12” X 18” moving dollies, for 8.99 each. I attached some 2X4 cross beams to the bottom of the shelf then screwed 2 dollies to the bottom of the cross beams. I’ll give a fair report about my rolling solution IF it breaks down. I don’t think it will but I heard that wood warps? Imagine that! ;) I’ll watch it over the coming months to see if I start to have any issues.
I’m winning back my garage a few square feet at a time. Thanks for looking and thanks for the solutions.
