Upper cabinets? Netting ?

I stayed in a tiny cabin recently , and the wall shelves were made from fish nets.

I'm thinking of a steel frame ( I can weld) and fish nets for upper shelves. It's not good for small things, but should be pretty effective.

Any thoughts?

Makes me vision a pickup's tailgate net. Light weight, and should hook into a 'locked' position with ease.

I wish you had some photos of the fishnet shelves. I couldn't picture this in my mind. That could work well for storing some things while not working well for others.

Yup, I'm still having trouble visualizing fish net shelves. I've used fish net before, but it was for storage of quilts, blankets and coats. Maybe I didn't do it right, but I didn't care for it much. Now blankets, quilts and winter clothing go into vacuum storage bags.

I'd like to see what you come up with.

I have seen something resembling this on cruising sailboats. You may look at some of the sailing/cruising sites for inspiration?

If you do go with overhead netting for storage, only SOFT items. Additional storage space is always available over the wheel arches and under the bed.

A major score would be airline overhead storage bins! https://tse3.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.N...=0&w=296&h=167

I like the thicker cargo netting stuff you find on military surplus sites. That's what I will use for soft storage. Also think about the overhead racks they use in long distance buses, the tubular metal kind of open shelves with a lip. Check out some so called chicken buses from Central America for ideas.

I used wire closet shelving from Home Depot. mount it upside down to gain the lip.

I think I will steal this idea for a storage shelf in our skoolie. I can not see how he attached the shelf to the bus wall and I can not see how he blocked off the ends to keep things from sliding off the shelf, but it is a good idea for storage in skoolie camper.

I've seen a couple of good "soft" storage ideas lately on FB, one that was especially clever was marine fabric attached to a long piece of wood on the wall side, and suspended with ring and rope toward the middle of the bus. I like that idea because it can be moved out of the way when not in used.
