SecondMoonshot Storage/Warehouse Unit In Place!
Pretty big day for SecondMoonshot! My daughter got into an accident (minor in the end, but put her vehicle out of commission). Turns out she needed to borrow my car for a few weeks, and so when she came to pick it up, she dropped me off at the local Public Storage for me to swap out another car. I asked her to hold on to let me look to see if any new units have come available as they are at a premium over summer months but what!!!! Finally got a 10x20 foot storage unit climate controlled. Mike at the Stickman St, Wake Forest location was awesome as always and what I truly love about this sight, seems simple, is they have LIGHTING! I have called around to practically every storage facility in the 30 mile area and this is the only one….likely due to initial construction and Public Storage probably acquired them. But either way, works for me. Even better, this is where I also store two of my cars (technically just 2 in a 10x30 foot unit), point being..I am familiar with the location and it is my preference and the unit I got is on the same row…not super close, but not complaining).
So, what I did next was reached out to my business partner, aka partner, aka not quite a wife yet (domestic partners…another story). Anyway, she is an organizing freak of nature, but thought I would give her a run for her money developing an optimal shelving solution for the unit. We both took a piece of graph paper, charted out the space to work with, and diligently worked to see who could get the best use of spaces using a 10x12 space (leaving an 8x10 space for work area). Well…I am not terrible, and after a few iterations, came up with a plan to have 12 2ft x 3ft shelves, which I honestly thought was the limit. She turns to me and says “Well…non-Asian boy, I have 24 shelves”….I crumbled (she is Phillipino). Turns out she has 2 blocks on her graph paper per foot vs my 1 block. She went back to the drawing board and … lo and and behold we both came up with the same optimal foot print.
