Fairly new to handyman work here so I'd love to have some of your expert help! I've looked all around for ways to suspend garage storage from a ceiling but none of them are dealing with a slanted area as shown in the photos below. There are several options for where I can suspend the storage as well (see 1, 2, and 3 in the photos below). One seems to be for the roofing but not sure what the other one is designed for and another one spans perpendicular across them. My thoughts were:
- to use either chain or steel wire to suspend the open side with eye hook
- I'm unsure as to whether or not to use an eye/lag screw vertical into the support or a eye bolt through the support horizontally; I've seen both used/recommended
- I'm not sure where to put the screw/bolts. Number 1 in the photo spans the whole planned storage area horizontally parallel with the storage. 2 and 3 both span perpendicular to the storage but I don't know if they are strong enough to support storage weights.
- use a turnbuckle to get everything at the right height
Any thoughts on how to do this setup? I'm not looking to put anything terribly heavy up there other than your typical stuff in storage boxes but I want it to be safe and also not cause any structural issues, especially with the roof (don't want it sagging or anything). Thanks so much for all of your help!
