where do you keep your airplanes

this spring, my next project is to build a workshop in my backyard that would be 22 x 10 feet.
this is a few of my planes.
how are you all storing them?

In garage,here is my home built rack I just completed out of pvc. I left the outer uprights unglued so I can turn them for ease of plane removal.Cost was around $70 in materials,but I have some left so probably closer to $50.

Ortho,

I'd try to bump it up to at least 16 X 24. If your framing, it's a good size for standard lumber lengths.

I recently went from 24 X 33 to 40 X 50. It fills up fast!

Mine live in the basement for now. One on the bench, two in the storage room and a park flyer hanging from the ceiling.

Any bigger than 50cc and I'll have to start looking elsewhere.

mine stay in my work room while they are being built/worked on. when they arent they live in the trailer. they seem happier there. they dont get hangar rash from being moved around.
