DIY Shelves for Lifetime/vinyl Shed?

Haven't even built my lifetime shed and but already looking at ways of customizing it. Shelf kits are expensive, $150 for a 3 shelf kit. Just wondering if someone has ever done something like this guy? Maybe a bit overkill but still is impressive looking.

All of the support for that shelving is the wood frame of the shed, which won't work with the lifetime shed.

This sort of resin shelving is often on sale at HD, Lowes, Rona, CT for $30. Holds up to 750lbs. I have these shelves with lots of paint cans and other reasonably heavy stuff and it has been good. Currently on sale at CT for $32.49 It is resin/plastic so it will hold up well out in a shed (anything metal will be prone to rust). It would be tough to build something out of wood for less.

My whole garage 2’ from the ceiling is 2x3 framing with OSB on top. I ended up helping my dad do it after I did my own.

That dum-dum built a wood shed inside his plastic shed. He would have saved money if he had just built a proper wood shed in the first place. What he has now is a wood shed clad in plastic to make it look like a kid's playhouse.

Build a proper shed. It's easy, just as cheap as those plastic Barbie's playhouses for grown men and won't make you feel like an inadequate tool everytime you look at it.

I've done this to my lifetime shed, but more like simpler shelving. I didn't frame the interior in 1x2 2x3 2x4. The idea in the video is kinda pointless, should have just built/bought a wooden shed.

Any chance I could get a pic of what you did in yours?

Probably snap one for you tonight. I basically put together a shelf, almost like that plastic one above but wood and I screwed them into the walls.

lol, not the best pic, but the entire wall is full of these, and I have the backs screwed into the walls which you can see in the photo.

Don't mind optimus and starscream. Boys were late getting home after a night on patrol.
