R32 takes up a good bit of room in the garage so I'm looking to make some storage space.

Its a garage under a block of flats so it had a reasonable tall roof. But its quiet narrow. One positive though is that the walls are all brick work, not plaster and wood.

So questions is, could I just bold some metal joist supports onto the wall and then span some 4x2 or 6x2 across before "flooring" it. Or would it be better to actually use some supports/legs thats go to floor level?

Its just going to be storing general stuff, at absolute I might storage a set of wheels onto of it.[/b]
