Shop storage/orginization

Post  FORDMUD on January 31st 2013, 6:43 pm

I'm almost done with my 36x48 shop. I'm looking for ideas on storage, and things you like and don't like about your shop setup. Pictures always help. It will be used for storing and wrenching on two trucks.

Best advice I can give you is to build another shop of same size or bigger to store everything in. That way your new one can stay clean.Mine is overflowing and it's 42x50, I think a 40x80 would help get this one cleaned out!!

Quit hoarding parts!

I cleaned house when I got divorced and cleaned out my garage. If it didn't belong to either of the two cars I have it got tossed or sold. I sold enough crap to finance a dragster build on the cheap!

In the 20x50 shop I rent now I bought a shelf similar to what Lowe's or Home depot have. It's 12' tall, 4' deep and 8' long and has two shelves. I have stuff stored on both shelves and on the floor underneath it. The lowest shelf is about 5' high so I could park the nose of the car under it if I have to. I have $300 bucks invested in it. Best $300 bucks ever spent. It really helped to clean up the floor space and open the shop up.
