BigBikeBarn Update

After having the barn built I had to set in to the task of arranging it how I wanted to outfit it. The basic arrangement of organization is separated into three parts, tools, parts, and supplies.

Right now I have parking for four bikes hanging from the roof.

 In the loft there is storage for three frames, which will be expanded to five when I get the chance.

  I have a beer fridge now and a new roll around toolbox. This helps with the organization of all the tools.

All the parts bins and boxes are in two places: small parts are in the parts bins above the workbench, and large ones are in the loft. after doing a few bike repairs this setup works nicely.
I have even found that being able to sit down when truing a wheel helps to speed things up a bit so one of my work benches has been shortened down to sit down height.
