Organizing Your Garage

S.P.A.C.E.S. - How to keep your life organized

You need an organizing and de-cluttering system if you don't have one.  We all do!  The pros say we've got to have one and it's time to admit they are right.  There are a couple of systems out there with names like "5S", "SPACE", "PLACE", and "SIMPLE".  They're somewhat complicated, right?  Actually, no.  I've used many of these systems over the years in various scenarios and have studied a good cross-section of the rest.  They're all remarkably similar, and I would argue, essentially identical. Leaving out all of the philosophizing and complication, I've boiled them down to their essential steps and my acronym is:  S.P.A.C.E.S. 1) Sort - Take your stuff, all of it, and put it into piles.

Missouri "Show Me" Field Test

We just wanted to share one picture with you today. We've noticed that a lot of our customers are engineers.  And that engineers are some of the biggest proponents of our shelves.  We are gratified that they recognize the strength and toughness that we have designed and build into our product. It seems that when we deal with engineers, for the most part they start off as skeptics.  They're used to seeing products today that are made as cheaply as possible, manufactured overseas and sold on the basis of marketing, not quality and craftsmanship. So when we win them over - and we do 100% of the time, if we may modestly say so - they become our best product...

Customer Idea: A Mud Room for Your Garage

That's what we call them around here. A place to hang muddy, wet clothes outside at the door from your garage to the house. Or anything that is more conveniently kept hanging in the garage for you to grab on the way to the car or the garden. This idea came to us from a customer who utilizes her invention for jackets and raincoats. Per her instruction, we built the clothes rack in the picture. DIY Project for Garage "Mud Closet" You'll need one Wooden Dowel or Closet Rod and two Round Closet Rod Center Supports moved out to the ends of the rod.  We used a 48" piece of 1-5/16" dowel rod and center supports to match that diameter. ...

Christmas Past, Christmas Future, and a Christmas Present

As we have mentioned in our blogs before, we were hired by our local home builders guild to design a commercial-grade shelving system to their specifications.  Back when we first designed and started manufacturing our Rhino Shelf Garage Storage System for them, we also began a factory installation program for our area. We now sell our shelves across the country from Alaska to the Virgin Islands, but we have continued to support our local homeowners and builders with these installations.  (We'll help you find a certified installer in your area, too! Just contact us!) As part of our Factory Installation program, we have a permanent Rhino Shelf Showroom established in the Historic Commercial Building at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds -...
