Garage Organization for a Family of 10

Most families have lots of stuff packed into their garage - kids toys, bikes, sports equipment; dad's tools and mom's hobby supplies. Multiply that by 2 or 3 times and you calculate the amount of stuff this St Louis family needed to put away.
Fortunately they came to Garage Designs of St Louis for help.
We started by building in His and Hers work benches so mom and dad would have a dedicated work space for their projects. The remaining wall space in their 3-car garage was lined with StoreWALL - super versatile weather-proof bug-proof slatwall panels. The wall panels support a multitude of hooks, shelves and baskets that are designed to hold practically anything. Even a small nook under an interior stairwell was utilized. Every square inch of this garage now has a purpose.
Mission accomplished!
Dad's work bench includes a butcher block counter top and ample drawer storage.
Bikes are hung with slatwall bicycle hooks and storage containers rest on shelves high above.
An under-stairs nook provides great garden tool storage!
StoreWALL even works in this small space!
Cleaning supplies and kids toys are kept handy by the door.
Everything is off the floor so the cars can get in the garage!
Mom's work space uses cabinet storage and a StoreWALL back splash to keep things within reach.
This space is organized!
Even the space between the doors is pressed into service, giving the tiki torches a place to live.

    What do you use on the walls (storewalls?)?

    Don't hang bikes by their wheels. Too hard for women and children to get the bikes down and it can pull the spokes out of the hub due to excessive strain. Yes I have experience with this...

      Bikes are the most difficult. I have a mezzanine in my garage so I hang my bikes off that in the winter but leave the bikes on the floor on kickstands in the summer. Kids can't get their bikes otherwise.
