Kayak rack

My flatmate and I are both really into whitewater kayaking. I've got 2 kayaks: a creek and playboat (a surfboard too) and he has a creek one and a slalom. We moved into a house a single garage and not much space to keep all our gear so decided to make a rack to store neatly our kayaks.

It had to be strong to take the weight of 4 kayaks, it had to be cheap as we hadn't much money left for this project after spending on house stuff. It had to be easy to do as we had very few tools available. And it had to have minimum screw into the wall as it was a rental house

So looked a different options and two wooden ladder frame connected by two beam for stability (and hanging clothes to dry) seemed the best way to do it. I was even able to use the left over of wood to make a show rack :)
