Time for A Change

It Was Time to Change up My Garage!

 

I purchased this house because of the space it offered. The living area was huge, it had a finished basement and a decent sized attic. A double car garage that I knew would be put to full use. Especially, once I installed the wood cabinets to help hold some of the chemical items. I didn’t like them being in the house.

Mu plan worked for a while then, I started getting smothered by all my family’s belongings I was tired of sorting through closet after closet to find the smallest items!  I had heard a lot about storing items in the garage and decided to check it out.  Normally all of our big stuff is stored in the basement and that works. I just want to give the basement a makeover as well.

 Looking at the garage, there was not a lot of playroom since both cars are stored in it. I did see some potential on the walls, around the cabinets. With this information, I decided to check out the items online under garage storage. A lot of sites popped up with promising options. First thing that caught my eye, an attic lift. I hadn’t really thought about using our attic, just our garage.  The attic lift would originate in the garage and take some of the bigger seasonal items to the attic.

 Okay, so that is one piece, now to finish this puzzle. I already have cabinets and they are still working, so no need to replace those. I did see some shelves that looked like they would work. These shelves would be put around the walls of the garage and could hold over 100 pounds! Definitely another addition to our garage.

 The last part was putting it all together. It was exciting to get it all in the mail! Contractors could have been hired but since there was some handyman knowledge already, we decided to do it all on our own. It worked out perfectly and soon our closets and basement were empty! Who would have guessed that!

 Before there was never a thought about using the garage for anything other than keeping cars safe. Now that image has certainly changed because it is now a functional storage unit! To think, I was actually considering paying for a storage unit! Good thing that never happened. This is definitely more beneficial to my family and will last longer.
