I’m sure you’ve already heard the phrase ‘Time Flies…’ Well I’m certain and it sure does! I know you’ve just made a major move in your life. Having graduated from high school and moving to completely different country and totally new people. Lucky for you though most of the people you’re going to encounter are related to you in one way or another.

You’ll get advice from a lot of people, mostly uncles and aunts. One thing you want to make sure is to keep in touch with your parents. Find a way to talk to them on a weekly basis, if not daily (since you’re moving away from your parents and siblings).
I’m always looking for creative ways to use space and hang bikes. Well, I don’t have a lot of bikes, but do have more than one. Found this great article and a DIY on how to save my self some space and hang/store my bikes.
Pretty awesome way. Of course, would have to see if I can still park the car in the garage after hanging the bike.

For the wood pieces, homedepot or Lowes can do the cuts for you at 25 cents per cut.
Get 1x Sande Plywood 4ft x 8ft and have it cut into 1x 36×41″ 2x 36×9″ and 2x 22.5×9″. You will be left with a lot of left over pieces but that is the cheapest way to get the perfect cuts.
Get 2x 2×4′ make sure that they piece you get is straight. Start with the 2x 36″ cuts from each and then get the 4.5″ pieces from the remaining.
Follow the images above to layout your pieces and mark them for easy assembly. You’ll also want to get 1-1/2″ to 2″ wood screws. Make sure to pre-drill before putting the screw through the wood or you can also get self-drilling screws to speed up the process.
Assemble the metal parts and measure the proper location for the Floor Flange that’ll connect the metal assembly.
