Floating Garage Storage

Built this "floating" storage in my garage using primarily 2x4s, plywood and screws. The key is to ensure the ceiling and wall boards are secured to the interior studs behind the drywall with heavy duty lag screws. Also added a chain on one end to prevent any sagging in the corner. For about $100 in material and several of my Ryobi ONE+ tools (including the Score speakers!), I was able to add a ton of storage space and get my stuff off the floor!
