The great thing about loft living is that the space is totally customizable. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how creative you are, or how crafty you are with a hammer and saw. Click through the jump to see some tricky storage items and how (for now) we plan on tackling the problem of keeping them out of the way with little effort.

There are some things that are needed in a space such as this. Construction items and large tools come to mind.
Our Orion Cooker will need a home now that we no longer have a garage and backyard. As will the charcoal and woodchips that go with it.
Before we bust out the saw and make built ins we decided that these shelves from Costco would be a great alternative (they may even end up being permanent depending on how we like the look).
We like the 90 degree angle configuration and purchased two of these sets to stack on top of each other. They should be able to hold things like Christmas ornaments, seasonal clothes and other odds and ends.

Look for pictures of the result sometime next week. The next step is to make a curtain for it!
