Garage Storage Ideas

Lads,

All going to plan, I've just bought a house and have a blank template to work with in the garage...

Anyone got ideas on setting it up to get the most storage out of it? I have Hunting/Rock climbing-Canyoning/SAR gear to store along with my tools I use for hobby woodworking...

Ideally i'd like to keep the car and trailer in there as well (4x4 won't fit so thats in the adjoining carport...)
  

If it is there, It's there to be climbed !

Congrats on the purchase Kezza,
Depends on the side of garage if a 6m by 6m and you want to put a car and trailer in there as well a good size work bench I think space will be tight so make use of all the wall space available.
I have a 8m wide double garage but with 2 cars, an exterior door, an interior door, couple of windows and the actual garage door there's frig all space left Angry

Floor to ceiling shelving is the answer . Buy plastic containers and make the shelves to fit them. Minimal waste of space and everything is dust, light and rodent proof.

+1

I use Muscle Rack type of shelving, fully adjustable and you can lock them together, biggest one is 2.1m tall. They aren't cheap for China, but definitely worth it!  Cool

As RLB points out, a standard 6x6 won't cut it. And all those annoying windows and doors eat into valuable bench space.
Go first principles: wait for a fine day, park up car and trailer, on the grass then add or imagine/measure up  all the other stuff you want in there, bench, door swing, shelving etc....and voila!  there's your shed size..... a triple garage in extra long size Grin Grin Grin

That's about the bloody truth !!
I personally would be very tempted NOT to have a garage door on the 3rd/end bay as it can't be used for a vehicle then. And if possible go to a 8 meter long/deep garage which give you plenty of space to park utes/boat/trailers/etc and still have shelving in front of vehicles with space to access that shelving.
Unfortunately, I think Kezza hasn't got a blank canvas to start with so I would go with as much shelving as possible and put the workbench under a window or if there's not alot of power points  put it where they are.
