Does anyone know what type of flooring they used in this room?

Well, we did it and it only took us 6 1/2 hours. My wife and I worked on it for 4 hours on a Friday and 2 1/2 hours on Saturday. It looks great and we once again have room for the cars to go into the garage where they belong. The top shelf is holding about 350 Lbs. and it can stilll hold some more. It cost us $376.80 to cover our 16 ft. wide by 9 1/2 H. garage back wall including the folding work bench. Instead of using the 90 digree folding hinge we bought 4 of the largest kitchen cabinet hinges and it only cost $5.00 each. $20.00 in total, instead of the $72 each it would have cost to buy the other ones. The difference is it also has a single leg right in the middle for support when it comes down.

If only I only had that much junk to store I wouldn't need storage. I have about 10 times that much. I don't see how that much stuff could even make my garage look cluttered.

If you have a support beam going across your garage ceiling (holds up room over garage), look at my project, storeage area, utilizing this space. Go to this page, and you will see 4 pictures, click to enlarge. http://www.hometalk.com/member/5d1d9qvw52

Planning to do this next weekend. I don't understand what the length of the the strips should be. Are you simply using 8 feet long strips and then cutting them so the ends match up with the studs? Or are they shorter? I'm guessing its a two person job if the strips are going to be around 8 ft.

Also I could not figure out what brackets to use. I've been searching (online only...need to get myself to the store)...mostly the rubbermaid site and I can't figure out which brackets work with wood and how they actually attach to the wood.
