The cons:-
As Jim said,
Its like the stack of plastic containers the item you need always seems to be at the bottom, hence having to unload timber to get to the pieces you need.

Its ugly and needs to be camoflagued from view.

But not having a workshop its the best I could do with the available space.

Previously I had timber stacked under the veranda and on saw horses around the yard, with covers, making the home look like a messy minature timber yard so the wife was happy as I was out of her clothes line hanging areas.

All the timber is now located in one area and it gave me a chance to huck out bits I had hoarded up, forgotten they existed and hence never used.

I have got a 12V solar powered fan running to provide constant air flow to provide a reasonable EMC on everything.

Have a look at the original setup:
The old setup if you could call it that involved some tubular school tables of which I took the tops off and used them, covering the lot with tarps (messy).

The rack was a big improvement, and the wife was happy too!!.
