Question Plan(s) for home-built bike locker?

For years, I have parked my bikes in my garage at home. (I have left my cars outdoors where they belong.) Now, I need space for some of my woodworking equipment. I am thinking about building a (multi-) bike locker that can accommodate four adult-size bikes, and possibly a recumbent (thinking ahead to my "golden years"). I would like my locker to be secure, waterproof, easy to load/unload, and fit in with my 1920's house style. Does anyone know where I might find some good "how-to" plans?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

There are many "how to" books on shed building, maybe you could gather some ideas from there. However, I prefer to keep my bike(s) in the living room.

My motto is, "if it's good enough for my family, it's good enough for my bike."
ORS 811.065 (1)(a):

The driver of a motor vehicle may only pass a person operating a bicycle by driving to the left of the bicycle at a safe distance and returning to the lane of travel once the motor vehicle is safely clear of the overtaken bicycle. For the purposes of this paragraph, a “safe distance” means a distance that is sufficient to prevent contact with the person operating the bicycle if the person were to fall into the driver’s lane of traffic....
