For effective use of space, hang your tools and supplies against the wall. Use a simple wall organizer for smaller items. You may also build pegboard for storage. Another good way to organize your items is to simply hang your tools on a trellis or pegs rails.

While drywall serves as the most common wall finish throughout most modern it’s not always the best choice for the garage. In addition to being difficult to finish properly, drywall simply isn’t as useful as other wall finishes when it comes to maximizing the functionality and organization in the garage. Before hanging drywall, consider alternative materials that add a practical or decorative touch in garages and workshops.

As you place each garage wall framing structure into position, you want to first make sure it is in a straight-line before you secure your bracing. You do this with a string line run along the top plate out from the edge of the plate about 1/2. Simply nail a 1 x 1 x 4 piece of pine to each end stud and run the string to each end. Then move the wall in and out with the interior braces until the wall matches the string line from one end to the other. Once you have it near perfect, nail the braces to the stakes in the earth. You can do this same procedure at the bottom plate with the string and a sledge-hammer to tap the wall in and out before tightening your nuts on the anchor-bolts.

I liked this product so much I bought a second similar item (stupidly I didn’t buy this item again, my mistake) the second broom organizer had all these ranting 5 star reviews. Too many untrue reviews!! Once seeing that product compared to this one I realized I had been duped by people leaving 5 star reviews for products they didn’t actually pay for and probably didn’t use. I came back to buy this one again and update my review so hopefully someone else won’t make the same mistake.

One source mentions that the United States had 303 broom factories by 1839 and that the number peaked at 1,039 in 1919. Most of these were in the Eastern United States; during the Great Depression in the 1930s, the number of factories declined to 320 in 1939.[6] The state of Oklahoma became a major center for broom production because broom corn grew especially well there, with The Oklahoma Broom Corn Company opening a factory in El Reno in 1906. Faced with competition from imported brooms and synthetic bristles, most of the factories closed by the 1960s.[6]

Since tools are so essential for gardening, it’s important to store them in a way that allows you to pick them up easily whenever you need them. Nothing feels more frustrating than having to search for a tool while your garden is waiting.

Before you can erect your garage wall framing, you will have to locate and drill the anchor-bolt holes into the sole plates and place your sill-sealer onto the foundation where the wall will sit. It is best to oversize the anchor-bolt drill holes a bit so you can adjust the wall location in-and-out at the sole plate for straightness. Make the holes 3/8 larger than the bolt size. That will give you 3/16 of an inch all the way around for adjustment purposes.

When it’s time to mow the lawn, trim the hedges, or plant a garden, don’t waste time searching for lawn equipment. Instead, design a well-organized storage spot in the garage to ensure your tools are easy to find and in good condition. Consider these savvy strategies based on your needs, budget, and available space.

The PowerFresh has the so-called Easy Scrubber attached to the stem of the mop, behind the head. The idea is that you press down with your foot, lock the stiff-bristle scrubbing pad into place, and use that to clean deep into tough stains or grout. It can catch some of the deeper gunk on its way past what you just cleaned. But we found ourselves wanting to hold the Easy Scrubber down with a foot to get really deep into grout, and that was not a smart move, balance-wise.
