Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is a highly dangerous substance that needs to be handled with extreme care. To form LNG, natural gas, which is naturally a vapor, is cooled to form a liquid, which occupies much less space than it does as a gas. In fact, its volume is only about one six-hundredth of what it was before it was liquefied. If ruptured, an LNG storage tank will begin to spew this liquefied natural gas onto the ground or the water around it. No matter how cold it is, the temperature outside the tank will be much warmer than that inside the tank, which is cooled to negative 260 degrees Fahrenheit.

Anne Arundel County police have arrested three men they believe are responsible for 259 break-ins of self-storage units in Anne Arundel and Howard counties. Investigators now are sorting through items seized in searches of two homes as well as a self-storage unit that they said one of the suspects rented, in an effort to match their haul with storage unit renters who reported thefts. "It does appear that some of the items have been pawned," police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.

Thousands of new and unsold automobiles are parked at ports across the country - another sign of just how badly car sales are faring. At the port of Baltimore, more than 57,000 unsold domestic and imported cars sit on land near the docks. And state officials recently bought about 15 acres off Broening Highway as they seek more space to store the backlog of cargo. In normal times, cars that Mercedes, Kia, Subaru, Hyundai, Volvo and others ship to Baltimore might sit in terminals for a week or so before being sent by truck or rail to dealers who would sell them to waiting customers.

Our small, new home is quite cozy, but it lacks adequate storage space for books, CDs and DVDs. We'd prefer something stylistically and functionally different from the standard storage unit, so can you suggest some possibilities for a custom-made piece? And can you tell us how to get started on such a project? "Houses are for living." I'm putting that simple saying in quotes because I'm sure someone must have coined it before me. If not, I'm pleased to claim authorship because it makes an important point.

To make their young son's room distinctive as well as create easier access to attic storage, Katherine and Robert Dwyer ripped out the ceiling of his bedroom. They left the exposed wood beams and added a skylight and a loft, reachable by ladder. That was 20 years ago. A few years later, in their daughter's room, they built an enclosed area they called a "nest," with louvered doors and a window. Those bedrooms in the Ten Hills house in the city were fun spaces for the children back then.

I am in desperate need of storage-shed plans, because the clutter in my garage has become unbearable. What should I be looking for? Is it really necessary to have detailed plans if I am going to do the work myself? How would you construct the shed to be both easy to build and long lasting? Three years ago, I took back ownership of my garage for my vehicles. When I first moved into my home, we could easily park my truck and our car in the spacious garage. But, over time, we accumulated too much stuff, which forced the cars outside.

We recently bought an old house in the country that needs some serious renovations. Among its charms is a large eat-in kitchen with a rustic look that we'd like to retain. There's no attached mud room, but there is a sizable closet right next to the back door that leads directly into the kitchen. Although the closet has a brick floor, it's not in very good condition otherwise. Can you help us decide what to do about storage space for boots, coats and hats? Storage areas such as closets and enclosed cabinets may seem ideal places for stowing all sorts of stuff.

The storage room in Zora Dougherty's consignment shop has been converted into Success in Style's latest fundraiser - Charity's Closet. "I knew I wanted to do something with the space eventually," said Dougherty, owner of Second Childhood in Ellicott City. "At one point, I received services similar to those provided by Success in Style. I knew they could do something great with it." Success in Style, a nonprofit organization, has provided business attire for more than 1,000 low-income women searching for jobs over the past six years.

We enclosed the triangular alcove under a rear staircase in our home because it seemed a clever place for storing items from our children's adjoining play room. The contents became so chaotic, however, that it proved difficult to find a particular toy or game - and only occasionally did we even bother to look in that space. Now we've decided there must be a better use for a nook that's 3 feet deep and 6 feet long, with a height ranging from 4 to 8 feet. Any suggestions on what we can do with this space?
