The kitchen fitter guy has also built me a new work bench and paint stands:





The floor underneath the desk and between the end panels will be vinyl, in an attempt to beat the carpet monster but also to facilitate easy moving along the bench without rising from my swivel chair. The rest will be carpeted.



There will eventually be four moveable drawer units too.

Watts wrong with this picture?  Toaster, hair dryer, air compressor, hot air popcorn maker, TV, radio, stereo, lava lamp, soldering iron, laptop, coffee/tea pot heat, extension lamp and room to plug in more.

A hobby room to kill for Al.  You can never have too many electrical outlets.  Can't wait to see it messy though.

You can't beat starting from scratch, especially when you've had something running before ... You can iron out all the little issues you had previously and improve on them, or alternately redo them completely.

Shame you had to start over due to circumstances beyond your control...... But wow, what a smart looking room it's starting to become.

Thanks guys.

Shelves are up and a start made on the new spray booth:





My system in the past for spare parts and all the little doodads we collect, has always been somewhat haphazard, so I invested in these two neat storage systems:

One step closer, looking good, lots of storage. I'm thinking having your spray booth up there might get bothersome.

That's where it was before Curt. I prefer to stand while spraying.

Of course!! LOL

Two more steps closer. All the anti-flood doors are now in, including my man cave. The yellow you see through the glass is the container in the courtyard!!

Carpet and vinyl down too.

Apart from hooking up the spray booth and building another three under bench drawer units, it's ready to start receiving back the stash and all the other bits and bobs!!
