Organized Garage and Workshop

Our garage is my retreat. It's where I go to build and create with wood. But, it is a small space and I had to build custom storage to squeeze in storage wherever possible. I also hung Habitat ReStore cabinets for sawdust protected storage over the workbench.
Storage built into sides of garage for paint and kid's toys
Tool, yard and sport corral
Plumbing pipes attached together for standing yard tool storage.
Rolling power tool work bench houses all the small power tools.
Adding two cabinets over the workbench added dust-free storage.
Aaaahhh. An organized garage/workshop.
