Workbench and Storage

Living in a townhouse with a 1 1/2 car garage and no attic space I needed to create more room for storage and the garage was the perfect place to do that. I created suspended shelving and utilized the high parts of the wall space in the garage. I also needed somewhere to work with my tools and create my projects. I built a workbench and built in a tool box and cabinets and then utilized peg board to use the wall space efficiently. I love having all the new storage to keep the floor space clear and I love having a place to work on all of my projects at my work bench.

  • @mtran2988 Thanks for the comment. The surface area of the work bench is 8' long and 24" deep. Each cabinet is 30" x 30" on the wall and the bench is about 38" high also.
