If you lived near by and I had the proper tools, I would build you something for the price of the materials and a beer.

Initially I was thinking wall mounted guitar hooks might be the answer, but I found this instead and think it might fit your bill: http://www.demarleus...llShelvesLG.jpg
They are collapsable wall mounted baking racks.

Hey we use what we can to suit our purposes, right? :)

Aw, that's perfect, innit? See - it just takes a burd to come up with the right idea!

I was thinking of lengths of 6inch dia. plastic drainage pipe, the ends pushed into twisted vertical ropes fastened at the floor and ceiling. Bit 'committed' though - can't see a wife allowing screwing into ceiling joists and floor boards....

We're maybe thinking it out too much though - wouldn't ordinary shelves do the job...?

Just had another thought -

How about a big fabric number - like a big wall-hung REv bag? You could have a load of pockets the width of the fabric back, sewn on three sides but with the top edge open, and all your kites would just sit in their own pocket.

I'll see if I can do a drawing on SketchUp or something.

Right so that would, in actuality, be a Revkite bag then. :blink: Must have blown all the creative nurons on your write up old chap!

No, Bri. I had the same problem, when I was a little boy, with my model planes. My Mummy had a simple solution though, and one that can easily be applied to your kites. Suspend them from the celing by 10lb fishing line. I would have thought your kites flying from the celing of the consevatory would look very summery - surely something to bring joy to Mrs Big's heart?

Build a kite conservatory just for your kites. Put some nice shades in it though, you dont want the Sun fadeing all your Revs and stuff.

The baking rack idea looks pretty good.....

How about building a rack system using 1/2 inch PVC pipe and pipe fittings? It would be clean, easy, movable, and you could make, or change the spacing as you desire. That stuff is pretty cheap and easy to work with. You wouldn't have to glue the pieces together. The only tool required would be a PVC cutter (usually located at the end of the isle where you find the PVC).

In the cellar add in a beer bar, sauna and swimming pool. Maybe even a wind tunnel along side to test new REV ideas.

Aye, but bigger and with the open part of the pockets along their top long edges, and without the fastenings and the carry strap and the outside zipped pocket and the big flap that covers the tops of the kite pockets. Oh and wall-hung.

But apart from that, you're spot on..... Not much sneaks past you, does it Julian...? :kid_devlish:

Aye, now you see - this a parallel thinking Bri....

You should be thinking of a storage solution for your wife, then you could leave the kites in the conservatory without grief! Voila - sorted! :kid_devlish:

Basically,i work around 30hrs a week in the Conservatoty these days.I think i may have a case if i put my foot down and insist they stay,its my space realy.I have my,,,,
WIFES PERMISSION TO SAY SO,,,,.Problem is,ive not bought a kite yet.That can ,cook.wash,iron,and be my best freind all in the same day. So i better be tactfull.Which im sorta lacking in at times.
Keep the ideas comeing people,but thers no chance of a SUPER DOME at the back of my house.A small rack/bag/hanging system or similar will be nice.

BRIAN...ps,Baloo,im building no roof top leisure centre either..lol

OK Bri, no roof top leisure centre.

How about digging a cellar under the conservatory, get your darts, beer, 10 pin, wind tunnel and maybe have room left for some kite storage.

If you cant build up, build down, I was going to say hows that for lateral thinking, not sure if lateral would include downwards?

ooooops sorry, forgot, not all folks live on a hill like me.

How about a Stargate that will transport you to loads of Worlds with all the varying wind and weather conditions you might ever dream of, and some you cant dream of. You could then use a whole World as kite storage.

And you never have a power cut, it never breaks down or gives you any problems.

And there is no such thing as Kite eating Aliens.

Now go on then top that one!!
