    Nice job. I need to build some nice heavy duty shelving like that. Mine is too light to hold any serious ammo, therefore I've got stacks of ammo cans on the floor. Seems that the can I'm looking for is always on the bottom of a stack. lol

    Same here Chief..
    Damn ammo was here a minute ago, where the hell did it go?
    Black Blade. I have been thinking of an outside shed for storage..
    Have one, but it is full..
    Down here in the swamp, our problem is humidity.
    Would probably have to put a small A.C. unit in for sure.
    What do you plan to stop humidity problems?

    No humidty here in the western desert. This is in a workshop. The safe was delivered and then bolted down in the shop and a room walled in, roof put on, door plus frame and lock added and then shelves built. Took about a day to get stuff together and complete. Total cost under $300 to put together.

    Nice job BB... been wanting to do something similar in my garage.


    I know the felling twa, i used to have all my stuff up on the third floor of my place in VT till i noticed the flooring between the joists was starting to sag a little. the thought of all my ammo an guns taking a trip to the basement the fast way was enough to convince me to relocate to the cellar. It wasn't until i actually hauled everything down there that i realized how much everything i accumulated weighed.
