Fitting my bike in a shed....need your help

I keep my bike (bicycle) outside on my patio, and I just bought a shed to protect it from the elements. The problem is, the bike only fits in the shed in a weird position, with the front wheel off. I would like to get a bigger shed, but the next size up won't fit on my patio. The bike will fit standing up, but I have no way of keeping it in an upright position. Also, there aren't many accessories available for this shed, so i can't just get a bike mount and install it. I am wondering if you guys have an idea on how I can fit the bike in the shed without it being a huge hassle, and also so i can have some extra space for a few misc. items. Here's a pic so you can see how it fits. thanks.

How about something like this?

Put two slats on the wall. Slip the front wheel between them to keep the handlebars straight.

my neck hurts.

cant you put a hook in the ceiling and simply hang it up by the front wheel? stab a hole in the roof, silicon it up after you insert a hook.

I would do a hook thru the roof attached to a board for added support or strength and then hang front wheel in it.

what about mounting one of those fist or fast clamps that a lot of guys on here use to mount shovels and stuff. but mount it on the side of the shed to hold the handle bars?

I just saw this thread had some more comments. Thanks for the help gents. I actually ended up selling it, because the bike fit, but it was way too much of a pain in the ass. Had to take off both wheels. My first thought was to hang it from the roof, but that wouldn't have worked. I am going to pick up a bigger shed soon and just put it in there.
