When I first started building a warehouse, I knew there would be a lot of variables.
My only limitation was that I would need a lot more space.
That’s when I stumbled upon a website that allowed me to get creative and build my own warehouse.
The Warehouse Builder has all the tools I needed to build an awesome, customizable warehouse, and I hope you enjoy the tutorials below.
I hope the photos are helpful for anyone who wants to build their own warehouse, or for anyone looking to start their own.
Make sure your materials are in order!
1) Make sure you have the proper tools for your task.
I always start with the shovel, the drill, and the drill bits.
I would also recommend a couple of drill bits, a drill press, and a couple different size drills.
These items will go a long way in making your warehouse look and function properly.
2) The first step is to decide what your warehouse will be.
I like to build a warehouse around two different items, so I decided to have two warehouse pieces.
This way I can easily add and remove items from my warehouse.
3) Make sure the dimensions are correct.
I usually start by measuring my warehouse piece, then making sure it is exactly the size I want it to be.
This will allow me to make sure it fits snugly inside my warehouse pieces and not be too big or too small.
4) Cut out your pieces of the warehouse.
I found it easiest to cut out the pieces of my warehouse that I wanted to be the main warehouse piece.
You want the top piece of your warehouse to be exactly the same width as your main piece, and then add an extra half inch or two to the sides.
5) I usually make my warehouse from wood.
This means that I cut a hole through the middle of the wood and then glue the pieces together with a couple staples.
6) Once the pieces are attached to the main building piece, you can start cutting out the other warehouse pieces that will be added to your warehouse.
This is a bit trickier because the warehouse pieces have different dimensions, so you may need to cut a little off the top or bottom of each piece.
7) Here is a close up of the pieces that you will add to your building.
I think this is the most important part, so make sure you get it right.
8) When you have all the pieces you need, you need to make a plan for what your main warehouse will look like.
I make this process much easier by using a ruler and a pencil to mark the pieces I want to add to my warehouse, so that I can get them all on one piece.
I also use a template to outline where the pieces will be located on my warehouse walls.
9) If you are using more than one piece, cut out a section of the entire building piece to match your warehouse pieces, so your pieces are not too long and can be easily hidden.
10) You can also add an additional warehouse piece to your main building, so the pieces can all be hidden behind your main pieces.
11) This is a picture of the final warehouse piece that I added.
I added the last warehouse piece on top of the other pieces.
12) Now that you have your warehouse building completed, it’s time to put it all together!
This is where things get a little tricky.
The biggest challenge is making sure you aren’t overbuilding your warehouse!
There are a couple things to keep in mind, however.
First, I usually place the pieces on top and bottom of the main pieces to help keep them from being too big and too small on the walls.
Second, if you have a lot in your warehouse, you may want to place the different pieces on the bottom of your main space, rather than at the top.
13) That’s where you can make a couple extra adjustments to your piece placement.
I tend to place pieces closer to the floor, because it’s easier to move the pieces around the floor when they’re hidden.
If you are building a larger warehouse, be sure to use a little more room to hide the pieces.
If your warehouse is very small, you will probably want to put the pieces in the middle.
14) Finally, here is a shot of the finished building.
The final step is finishing the final product!
