    I'm not trying to slam those with stacks of Lego boxes...it's just that these days I try to avoid documenting my stacks of boxes.

    222 sets boxed up and ready to be let go. It’s just time.

    And thank you, @littletoki, for me making me drool enviously, and providing us with something to laugh about! I just worked 14 hours; laughter is good.

    But here's the new and improved Lego room! LOL.

    Storage of all the loose Lego which is not part of any set:

    Wow!  That is a nice looking room.  Everything is so organized and neat.  I can only hope mine will look that way one day.  Maybe when the kids are out of the house, I'm retired, and the honey do list is caught up a bit.  Yeeeeeeah.  It's going to be a while.  But I can dream and try.

    Heck of a Star Wars collection (as I'm eyeing the beauty of the Super Star Destroyer I'll never own.)

    I noticed you went the route of snap close containers for all your loose bricks.  Does it work well when you have to open a bunch to sort out new stuff or pull stuff to build?

    Out of curiosity I went and looked at your last post for a before and after comparison of your room. I now have something to aspire to when I can afford my own Lego room.

    Hi all - it's been a very long time since I've been around on the forums. Busy with work, new house and illnesses. Not sure if anyone still remembers me.

    But here's the new and improved Lego room! LOL.

    Those look like Artbin boxes. What kind of shelves do you use? I've had a hard time finding shelves deep enough.

    It took you three years to add 160K bricks? Slacker! ;)
    Have been slowing down due to space issue. Don't think can add much from now onwards.
    I can still see some floor. And if you learn to walk sideways through that corridor then you'll find extra space.

    Lol, that was actually what I'm thinking. Wife complaining living room no more space so was thinking maybe can squeeze somemore into the toy room.

    That room really is something to aspire to. The bins are labelled. The shelves aren't overstuffed with empty boxes. There's space to work and move around. And perhaps the most enviable feature-it's not an unfinished basement. Even the kitties know it's something special.

    Uh, yeah.  There is clearly nothing on those shelves that belongs to your wife.  (Maybe the HP books, but I don't want to be judgy.)

    Love the Hardy Boys book.  And I have the top part of Ninjago City in a sandwich bag as well.

    I'm pretty sure there's "The Fault in Our Stars" and 101 Dalmations on Blu-ray in there, so she's got some stuff...  And the pink hippo bookend.

    The Hardy Boys book (nice pixel peeping by the way) is actually hollowed out - got it as part of an invitation to a birthday party and kept it.  The NC-in-a-sandwich-bag is a moving casualty that I haven't yet gotten around to addressing.

    As much as I love the idea of rainbow-ordered books, I can't bring myself to split up authors or series...

    Architect life... everything gets designed.  Once upon a time they were arranged by height.  Last year I shifted to color.

    Your dusting regime must be exhausting but I'd love that problem, sometimes I feel lego should be paying us especially anyone with 300+ and with 80% of that big sets ,like music royalties

    ^ Wow would love to have a space that size for Lego. We're officially a year into collecting and have decided it needs a dedicated space rather than a bit in each room. We're going to carve off a small section of our bedroom upstairs. Can't wait to get planning it, there's some great inspiration in here.

    Here's an updated photo of the mess in my house taken less than an hour ago. Can spot the difference from the photo posted 3 years back? :))



    Basically the count had increased from around 750K bricks worth of sets to now 910K.
    Is there 3 of each set?

    So much display space wasted on those CDs. 

    Unrelated thought - After burning and cataloging my (childrens) DVD collection, I have 1000 or so DVDs safely packed away in bankers boxes in my non-climate controlled Garagio.  Best thing I ever did!

    @CaptainRogers - looks like you need a bunch more roadplates.  I've been stocking up since they've been on sale.

    @SumoLego lego is my current main hobby, but not my only and not my first. I think of it not as wasted space, but just that I clearly need more shelving. 😁

    Also I recently got 4 copies of #7280 since my local Target has them half off. I might go get the remaining ones, the more I think about it.

    These sound like excuses!  Digitize those CDs, and clear some room for a vintage Castle, Pirate and Space collection!!  Monochrome figures!!! Vignette mini-builds for each Marvel superhero!!!!

    @SumoLego though your display ideas do sound better than my 'Superhero drawer' organization at the moment. At least I've got a few shelves being useful.

    Digitized copies can't be autographed!
    Huh.  Got me there.  Frames on the wall for those... the rest in a lightless box!
