Shelving in the shed

posted on
Well after a couple of solid weeks of work and organising, the shed is pretty much done. I have a few little projects that I want to get done, but the majority of the work is completed. Got the 2 new shelves in, and the stud wall up with storage for garden tools and whipper snipper, and heap of trays for odds-and-sods. Next big project is to get the side-paving done.

Shed wall and shelves

posted on
Some more work on the shelves in the shed. I have been contemplating how to build maximum storage into our little garden shed. I need some space for my grain drums, but I'd also like to get the whipper-snipper and garden tools hung up out of the way. And then there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be stored out of the way until I get to them or need them (mid-term projects) And I'm working in a 2m * 2m garden shed. Read on on for my solution.
