I have hired a general contractor to build a bike garage and work area on the side of my house, which needless to say is very exciting. I have the basic layout finalized, see below. It's going to be a discreet shed with a deck in front, suitable for cleaning and working on the bike. And I guess a table and chairs, for those non-cycling hours. I'm happy with this layout, and don't want to vary from the basic design unless someone find a huge flaw with it.
I do need help on the shed itself, though. I don't know the exact dimensions yet (it will depend on the height of the deck since it will align with features on the house) but let's assume it's 8' wide, 4.5' deep, and a height of at least 6' in the front, 7' in the back.
My vision to devote most of the space to hanging bikes. i think the simplest and most effective way to do this is old-fashioned hooks on a 2x4 but I'm open to more elaborate solutions. I expect to have 3-4 bikes in there. So how should I compartmentalize the space? Perhaps a bin or drawer below the bikes? do I have room? Shelves on one side? What kinds of odd-shaped things should I allow space for? A work stand, obviously. A work stool that can roll out? An air compressor? (The shed will have power.) I'm open to all suggestions and considerations as I think about how to lay that out, and if there are size constraints I should think about up front.
