Help us design a simple outdoor bike shed combo.
As a sort-of follow up to this question
, we're having a wood fence put around our backyard, and we'd like to have a bike shed built and attached to it.
We're going to have to give the carpenters some directions, so we're trying to figure out the simplest ($), most efficient design to store two full-sized mountain bikes and a kid's bike. Some shelves would be nice too.
It will be up against the fence (back of shed against the fence), at the read end of the yard, facing the house, probably in a corner.
I envision the big bikes hanging vertically by their front tires, to minimize the footprint vs, say, a horizontal hanging rack. Shelves on the side for helmets, etc. Where should the kid's bike/pull-behind go? Can we fit a jogging stroller in there too?
Are there any good examples out there? How deep/wide/high? Any potential pitfalls or design quirks we should keep in mind?
