    Started working on a life long dream in December 2016 of converting my garage into my very own Lego room. It finally came to fruition and this is outcome so far! There is still a lot of sorting and work to be done but happy with progress made.

    1x1 plates would probably make a nice exfoliant.

    Couldn't find the original thread of accommodations made to your house for lego so figured I would start a new thread specially made for lego rooms. I have chosen to share mine and hope others do as well

    Nice setup! The London (I assume) display looks awesome and I love the way you've suspended your aircraft. Those MISB Comic-Con exclusives make me jealous, especially the Dr Strange/Black Panther set as I would have snatched those up straight away had they been regular retail.

    Unfortunately the room I keep my Lego in is not my own (I'm a TFOL) so to avoid being rude I won't take pictures. Basically, there's a bookshelf that holds, besides books, all of my Ninjago sets (2014 and prior), set #75055 displayed with some of the collectible Star Wars planets hung from the aforementioned Ninjago sets (e.g. the Destiny's Bounty's anchor), all of my Dimensions stuff and some larger miscellaneous sets like #8078 Portal of Atlantis. Opposite that's a strange sort of wardrobe-cabinet combination with a Battle of Scarif display, a vertical Minecraft display, some random little builds such as Microfighters, and empty space for my parts collection to go once I've finally finished sorting it out. Then there's my (otherwise unused) desk, where pretty much everything else goes to die. I keep all my best stuff in my bedroom, though...

    ...as well as some Ideas stuff above my bed. Pardon the horrendous photography.

    Edit: it is possible to use spoilers in this forum?

    Any update @stlux?

    My LEGO room continues its descent to entropy.  Although I was happy to find a misplaced pile of brick separators that went missing.

    I´m also building my first lego room in my house because I´m running out of space in the roof top. I hope the 20 sqaure meter will last be enough for some weeks...

    Exactly. That's why they call me Baby Yoda.

    Honestly the first thing I thought when I saw the photos was "where's the building table? Where's the spare elements?" :P

    Instead of a neat empty room, I now have a room stacked full of boxes:



    98% is Lego - not all boxes are pictured...

    The Ikea solution I wanted to go for at least to start with, didn't work. And getting a custom solution takes time... With kitting out the rest of the house taking precedence (we didn't move much furniture from our previous place, going for all custom made new), it'll take a little while longer to have my Lego room properly fitted out.

    For the moment it's basically a warehouse where I add on a daily/weekly basis more Lego boxes. Not much different from what a lot us of are doing?

    Well yes, obviously all that cardboard isn't Lego ;)

    The room looks perfect for a load of Ikea Billy Bookcases! :D

    Not deep enough ;) 

    I'm looking to get some 60-80cm deep shelves made that can carry some decent weight. E.g. proper office furniture can carry 60kg/shelf, but is usually only 40cm deep. Something you can put #75192 MF on (at least at an angle) and not have to worry the shelf will bend.

    We're almost done with getting the rest of the house in order, so hopefully I can get a quote from a cabinetmaker soon!

    ^My issue is before having a LEGO room all I wanted was a LEGO room.  Now that I have the LEGO room the amount of free space continues to dwindle and I'm now wondering where can I go next?
    A Lego house???

    Everyone should have a LEGO stock room as well.  I thought that was implied?  You can't have your excess stock and long-term storage cluttering up your LEGO display and building room...

    Looking forward to one day having my own room. Been planning a layout for some time, just can't wait for it to come to life.

    Whilst this thread is active, can I ask If anyone use a summer house or shed as a specific lego room? What might potential draw backs be (other this poor security)?

    LEGO is flammable?  I should probably move my Mr. Gold collection further away from my makeshift forge furnace and plasma torch...

    Yup, I'm fully aware I will run into that issue, but nothing a really big hammer and knocked down walls can't fix, haha.

    This is actually why I personally am planning on a garage/shed LEGO room.  Lots easier to add more capacity there if you plan it well than to the house.  And you can make it plenty secure, you've just got to put the money into doing so.

    My dream, goal is to buy a store for my Lego room. I'm eyeing this empty storefront for sale that has a rented apartment above it. The renter will cover the mortgage, free Lego room! Not to mention the massive basement full of potential. The building is 2,221 square feet, so plenty of room for display, storage, and building.
