Wasted space. I had a problem. A full year after buying my new car I still had not managed to get it in the garage. Even though we have a 2 car garage, there were tons of things in our garage that prevented us to fit both my wife’s minivan and my car in at the same time.
The thing that bugged me the most about this situation that we were in was that there was plenty of space in our garage to fit both cars in there. What we were faced with was the empty space was not on the garage floor but in the space between the floor and the ceiling.
You see, based on the slope of our land (the front of our house is higher up) and the placement of our garage (in the back), we have a very, very tall garage. This would be great if we had a ping pong table in there as it would accommodate high arcs for the ball to travel in. But it grated on me because it was wasted space.
Check out the amount of space we have over our garage door for crying out loud! At least 5 ft!
If only I could take that space and utilize it better. If only I could elevate some of our garage stuff so that there was more room on the ground floor to move our vehicles inside. I did some research on companies that could install a shelving unit above our garage door and after comparing a few companies decided on a local Cary, NC company called Garaginize.
Check out how much extra storage space we have now above our garage door!
And here’s a closeup of the rack itself.
In the end Garaginize installed a 4′ x 20′ “superdeck” that can hold a massive amount of stuff. And because it is above the garage it is hidden from view when looking into our garage. Garaginize was super awesome. They were super flexible when it came to scheduling an estimate and installation. The cost was a fair price and the installation process was on time, professional, and they cleaned up afterwards.
Success! We not can fit both cars in the garage and all the clutter is gone!
Has anyone else had experience with Garaginize?
