Garage Shop Makeover

A local St Louis cycling enthusiast tolerated his packed-to-the-gills garage shop for much too long. He finally contacted Garage Designs of St Louis, who brought order to the chaos. Garage Designs started by upgrading the lighting and power sources and installing a thermostatically controlled heater. Next came repairing, replacing and painting the old drywall shell. A fresh epoxy floor coating covered the cold concrete surface. Finally, storage cabinets, an ample workbench and StoreWALL wall storage panels were added, along with plenty of ceiling hooks for hanging the homeowner's array of bicycles and wheel sets.

  • Steve, this makeover has created quite a buzz in the St Louis cycling community! Douglas, maybe we can "winter" in your neck of the woods and take care of those garages. KMS Woodworks, glad you have a warm, dry shop in your basement!

    Garage cabinets are a clever way of clearing out garage clutter. They beat having a never-ending series of yard sales. As a storage cabinet pro, customization is key.
