Well, that’s a good question and the answer is I don’t know and I don’t want to find out the hard way. :) I do have the room though but I really can’t see the need to have that many on hand.

I did beef up the rafter supports before I put the racks up though. If you notice the two vertical supports on the right side, the one with the metal plate and the one behind it. And at the other end and in the middle also, so I wasn’t just relying on the cross joists from side to side for carrying the load. So far the roof hasn’t sagged. ;)

The rack on the left which is the one shown has the plywood, the rack on the right (not shown) has dimensional lumber stored on it which I don’t think is as heavy.
