virtually no closets . . .
Our family of 4 has just moved into a short-term (6 months) furnished rental house while we wait for our new construction to be built. We have already stored most all of our stuff. It was not our desire to move into a furnished house, but it's what was available.
The house is really a summer cottage. It has a small kitchen with eat-in space, a good sized living area, 1.5 baths and 3 bedrooms. The problem is the lack of closet space. The closets in each bedroom are about 4 feet in height and 2-3 ft wide. The home we just moved from had very generous closets, including a really large walk-in. We have no coat closet and winter is coming up here in Michigan.
What are your best storage tips for clothes, coats, boots, and food? The basement is not really usable--damp and yucky, peeling paint.
