Shed storage ideas needed

Well going to build a 12x16 shed this spring. Well cant say I am the most organised person in the world, and I have a LOT of stuff to put in this shed!!! I would love to hear about, or see pictures of creative storage ideas for my new shed.

I know it's bigger than you want but I have heard of people getting two of those shipping containers, spacing them apart and spanning trusses across them and building a roof. I think that would be pretty awesome. I'd do it..

Exactly like that....Awesome...I would love to do something like that.
Is that yours? And how does the cost of doing that compare to just Building a structure?

One thing that I learned was that going up in height does not change the
price too much. That could make for a nice loft, hence more storage space.

The pitch will be farly steep. The last one I built was a good mix of steep pitch to keed the snow load light, and lots of room, and not so steep that I dont what to get up on it and roof it. [not a bigg fan of hights!!!] Im also doing 8' walls.

Storage ideas kind of depend on what kind of stuff you're gonna be storing in it.

I bought an 8' by 40' last year for my office. Painted it, fixed up all the rust

places. I will tell you it is stout! The thing is, not much difference in price from

a 20' so I went with the extra space since you can never have enough.
