Now lets look at the Short Garage Wall Framing Elevation Components diagram at the right. This is the more complicated of the short walls since it contains the overhead door rough opening. Pay close attention that both short walls will fit between the two long walls which will be erected and braced first. The diagram shows where those long walls will be in relation to the short walls and you have to get your measurements exact on the widths.
Thanks for continued comments. I have just posted a new article reporting in on several of my organization schemes and how they held up after 1 year of use. The post is here. This one is still golden – others required modifications.
Nancy, Great question. My tool shed has a dirt floor so I just ran a row of bricks along the bottom and the end of the tools rest on that. I didn’t want them resting on the dirt. I could have attached a wooden shelf for a bottom. On the short tools I did use the wooden sill as a bottom.
Table 5-B REQUIRED SEPARATiONS IN BUILDINGS OF MIXED OCCUPANCY (in hours) shows Group I (Dwellings) and Group J (Private Garages) as being required to be separated by a 1 – hour fire-rated partition and 1-hour fire-rated door.
Repurpose a wheeled cart into a portable garden center. If you’ll be doing a lot of planting, a cart can help you keep all of your supplies together. This is a great option if you’ll be moving heavy objects like garden soil or large ceramic pots. 
As for the other tools such as spades, rakes, etc. I use hooks mounted to the walls of the shed. My hubby even felt the need to draw the outline of the tool and label each space in Sharpie. I hang these tools with the business end up.

The Karcher SC3’s long-reaching lance makes it an incredibly versatile cleaner that’s a breeze to handle when cleaning tight corners and awkward angles. Without the tools attached, it serves as a straightforward steam gun that can refresh clothes, remove dust from plants and perform a little moist dusting here and there.
I clean homes for a living and need a mop that will hold up. Love this mop, but after 1 year use it quite steaming all but a little bit. The first thing I did was try flushing it out with CRL to get rid of the mineral build up from hard water being I wasn’t using distilled water. This didn’t work, so I decided to take the body apart to investigate, be careful not to lose the tiny screws when removing. When I got it opened a small piece of rubber hose fell out, it had broken off from were the steam comes through. Be careful not to lose the spring that is in the end of the hose. My husband replaced the hose that was there. There is a clamp there just use pliers to clamp it back down. This mop works like new. Steams like a champ! Will continue to use an see how long it lasts. Other than this I love every thing about it. The water tank is small but it cleans two rooms before having to refill. I will also be using distilled water to make sure no minerals build up. For the price an if your mechanically inclined I recommend this product.
High traffic areas – We wanted to find out how well each steam mop cleaned up ground-in dirt and dust, and there was no better test for this than the laundry/mud room. Outside dirt is constantly tracked onto the linoleum floor here, leaving dusty and sometimes muddy footprints all over the surface. With each steam mop, we did the same number of slow passes on the floor and then checked the results. After cleaning, we considered the floor’s brightness, how it felt to the touch, and how much dirt was on the microfiber pad (meaning it was no longer on the floor!).
The Reliable Steamboy Pro 300CU 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Mop can switch between a steam pad and a very stiff scrub brush, once you press with your foot to release one triangular section and press the mop onto the other. The switching mechanism works pretty well, but it’s a niche need, considering how small the terrycloth mop pad is and how often you’ll need to clean it for any sizable room cleaning. Small isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker for everyone, but the head is also more limited in flexibility than the one on the Bissell PowerFresh.

So will the shared wall and any wall that that supports the floor above. Since one wall with be mostly overhead doors, there is probably only one wall left that might or might not have to be protected with drywall.

A bit bigger than i was expediting. If you put a pole on it you would have a 3/4th size broom . I’m thinking as time goes on and the starmds snap and break it will get smaller as the are prone to do. One area of concern is the little loop to hang it. The cap is held on by a nail and the nail is not in there very well. If you bang the nail in you can’t flip the loop up. Catch 22. I will probably just replace the nail with a screw so I can set it at the right height and be done with it.
This is one of those clever “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas. So simple, too! Use a sturdy kitchen paper towel holder (like this one shown in the picture) for your garbage bags in the garage. Because garbage bags are considerably heavier than paper towels, you’ll want to make sure the towel holder is secured well to the wall. You would also need a skinny rod to ensure that it will fit through the small opening in the center of the garbage bags.

Garage was primed and painted. The floor was finished with a Khaki Floortex™ floor coating. The temporary wooden steps were replaced with precast concrete steps and given the same coating as the floor.
I knew a variation would work in our tool shed. I had some PVC left over from a sculpture project posted here. (Side note- following that link is worth it if you don’t know about our sculpture week. Risk it and take a look!) Instead of the suggested format, I cut the PVC scraps at an angle (approx. 30º) into 6 pieces and mounted them at the mid point and bottom of my shed wall. Here are the cut pieces. I saved the short end pieces and I was glad I did.
Gardening tools can be awkward and hard to store, but there are tons of great options to help get you organized. For long handled tools like rakes and shovels, you could get a small standing rack for your garage or shed (here’s the standing rack that I have, or you can get one like this that fits in the corner). You can also store long handled garden tools by hanging them on hooks on the wall. I use this heavy duty long handle tool hanger for my garden tools too (I have a lot of garden tools!).

Bear in mind that if the garage shares a common wall with the house, you need a fire-rated wall structure. Same goes for the ceiling if they have a common attic. 5/8 FireX drywall is probably the cheapest way to meet the requirement.
