Unique Garage Storage and Sustainable Office Space

Posted by Chris Watkins on Monday, 28 Nov 2011 10:20 PM

Our Wilsonville client had a unique challenge with their garage project - considerable garage clutter, inadequate garage storage and a need for added office/desk space within their home.

Click meGiven these challenges, we utilized the Hyloft SuperPro overhead racks to create a cost effective storage option for seasonal and infrequently used household items.  Additionally, with the ceiling height, we could mount the storage racks above the garage door to provide a "cleaner" or less cluttered look, while providing ease of access to the racks.

Then, we added Redline Garage Gear storage cabinets with a Pewter powder coated finish and a custom redwood "live-edge" countertop complete with a two-part epoxy finish.  The countertop will be used for a multi-screen workstation/monitor configuration.  What was fun, was building the live edge redwood countertop out of reclaimed redwood timbers.  Also uniquie was the 7" square leg, made from a reused Redwood telegraph pole from the days before the information age.

A Toshiba flatpanel TV opposite wall along with a Redline Garage Closet complete the solution.
