« Part 1: Making the Frame Parts Part 2 of Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack series Part 3: Finished Lower Frame »

Got the support rack glued up and weight tested. Watch the video to pick up a few tips and tricks to getting it flat and square. This has been a really fun project so far! Let’s hope it works and can be useful for myself and for others!

Perfect idea to inexpensively increase storage space mate! I can’t wait to see you install the storage system and start loading it up! Looks simple enough for us to copy and get put up in our garage area too and I’m excited to finally be able to move some things off of the floor and properly packed away once we have ours done!

Glad you liked it!! It’s coming along quick. I had to wait for some parts to arrive. I hope they come this weekend so I can get it up on the ceiling safely. I have some parts coming to make some security straps. I don’t want to put it up without them. It’s kind of heavy.
