Working on my Garage (looking for shelving ideas)

Well I haven't been on this site for a while, been working on my garage which means 0 work being done on my car. But! Lots of work planned for my car nce the garage is done.

My garage is almost done being painted and I need shelving ideas. Low cost of course. The garage is 20' W x 22' L and must hold 2 cars plus my tools :/. Can anyone share pics of thier garage so I can get some shelving ideas. Right now I plan a workbench at the back, hanging most of the tools on plywood at the back. A Tirerack on 1 wall. Shelving along the top of the two side walls to hold the wifes junk. Something to hold rolls of fiberglass / carbon fiber.

All in all can people post pics of thier garage / workspace for ideas. I will post my pic when the painting is done.

No pix, sorry. My space is so tightly packed you couldn't see anything anyway.

But, shelving ideas...
Go to you local building materials recycler and look for hollow core, bi-fold closet doors. One set ($5? free?) gives 4ea 12" x 6'4" shelves. I used those zig-zag metal strip multi-shelf brackets.

Put a vise on one workbench corner, directly on top of a 4x4 or 6x6 post.

Applying last coat of paint tonight. Tomorrows my birthday but I will try to finish the final touch-ups. I may be able to post a pic by monday of the painted walls with my junk-filled garage.

After drinking a Monster Rehab in the afternoon, I was going strong until 10pm working on the garage. Finished some shelves and stacked a bunch of boxes on top of em. Working on my gardening rack right now.

I tell you what that Monster Rehab made me more productive than I ever remember being. I will attempt to post a pic tonight after I get more work done.

Can anyone post pics of thier workspace?

Your thread isn't getting much attention.

Do you know about the associated website, Ecorenovator?

Maybe you could do better here, in DIY/How-to
