Last year I started a new hobby of paddle boarding. We just now figured out a way to hang it in the garage. The hubby and I bought some brackets to get the paddle board off the garage floor. We didn't raise it up but about 18". I was afraid if we put it higher, I wouldn't be able to put it up by myself.
We worked around the house today, trying to clean up the garages. We still have a long way to go. Another thing we did today was hang a retractable clothes line. I've had it for over ten years (found it in the garage!). It extends at a diagonal across the screened porch, which is a little awkward, but I wanted a place to hang some things no matter what the weather is. I just pull the cord across the porch to a hook. When it isn't in use, it is hardly noticeable.
