    Garage Storage Improvement Project

    I am on second weekend of uncluttering of my garage. Made big progress last weekend. Unearthed naked wall in the process:



    Good candidate for peg board project. I am currently running 2 peg boards. Those do not look that great when loaded in junk but are affordable and can hold tons of stuff.
    Local project megastore, 4x8 board is just 19 bucks

    Those boards require backframe for installation. Frame design depend on intended carrying capacity for the board. In my case I am not intending for the board to carry particularly heavy objects like power tools. Therefore 3/4 thick planks will do.



    Wall is made of concrete blocks . I am using Tapcon brand concrete screws to attach framed board to the wall. I like to use them a lot. Box of screws comes with specific concrete drill bit. Hammer drill is a must for those.

    Overall easy and cheap project. I buy pegs on fleabay cheap in bulk btw.

    Tools I used are power saw, hammer drill and power driver.

    I am eyeballing large dead space above garage door for storage use.



    This picture shows the space with door fully open.



    There is enough space to fit tall storage bin. I am thinking to make bin rack or rather two one on each side of chain oppening mechanism (visible in the center).
    There are commercial options avaliable but after review I think I can do better and cost effective.

    Got the material for over the door storage rack last week. Gotta love and hate those megastores. Wasted lots of time as usual there but finaly got what I need.
    Started today with back rail that is screwed directly to the concrete lintel beam.



    Next job is to screw strut channel to the ceiling perpendicularly to joists.
