-Plastic Crates

If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to add shelving to your portable building, this is the way to go! Even if you get a simple milk crate, that doesn’t mean you can’t spruce it up a little with spray paint.

-Bracketed Shelving

Your ceiling space sometimes goes unused, so maximize it with proper shelving!

Just make sure you’re screwing the brackets into the studs that line the wall.
