    The pass-through shelving is very nice!

    You clearly need more ships.  No Silent Mary?  I know a guy that has one - very cheap!

    I was on the fence when it was out. Who’s this guy and what’s his price?

    Allow myself to introduce... myself.  Feel free to PM if you're interested.  (And I generally dispense with the box - saves on shipping.)

    Has anyone had success in dividing up TROFAST containers? My baggie system is no longer working for us.


    I am looking for a solution similar to my Sterilight drawrs.

    Can we have some modifications to domiciles, as opposed to storage discussions?

    Does adding furniture count? I have a new glass-door bookcase for my home office on the way (literally in transit from the maker now). 73" tall, about 35" wide, and 5 shelves ~12" deep and adjustable height (plus the fixed bottom shelf). Should be able to hold a pretty good number of sets and be dust free (or at least dust significantly reduced).

    I haven't decided if I will move the modulars into that or leave the modulars in my other glass case that's wide enough for 4 per shelf (but only has 3 shelves). Right now I only have 2 modulars plus Old Fishing Store built, due to lack of space. The new case will add enough for me to catch up on building the modulars from Parisian Restaurant to present.

    @Astrobricks suffice to say there’s a story behind that and since I couldn’t bear to get rid of the box (it was one of those promotional items in a supermarket) and it needed a space in the room my husband had it framed as a surprise.

    ...is it a trap?
    Of course it is.

    Before my wife and I were married, she feigned interest in the LotR movies, and volunteered (tortured) herself to 'catch-up' on the first two before RotK was released.

    Now, it's:  'Don't be puttin' those stupid rock monster movies on my television!  Golfball and this Dwarves should be taking a long walk off of a short pier into Jaws-infested waters.'

    (I always hear that in a Miss Piggy crescendo, but I'm told it's not that dramatic.)

    You'll be remodeling your kitchen before the LEGO room goes in, and you'll magically run out of budget.  Akbar is always right...

    See, I've found the best way to circumvent any (lack of) approval by The Oversight Committee is to simply present things like my Lego city and UCS MilF coffee table as a fait accompli. "Geez, hon, I know the city is 8'x12' but it's kinda too big to move so I guess it'll just have to stay here." 

    I plan the same when I eventually get my double-tap kegerator and (someday) BMW M5.

    We have finally caved in and getting quotes to convert the garage loft/attic into a Lego room... if the cost works out we should end up with a room approx 5.5m x 4m

    Will be looking back through this thread at all the ideas of how to fit it out with cupboards/tables etc and seeing what would work best.

    I always do at least one "major" project at the house each year during vacation/holiday time. These projects are like lego sets on steroids, and can be more expensive, dangerous, and frustrating. The project for this year is building an additional room in the attic for my boxes of legos, and was originally proposed by my wife with the alternative being divorce (take note, @LegoFanTexas). It will (hopefully) simultaneously clean out our room and my closet while taking this hobby out of the line-of-sight of my better half. Presently, I have only planned a square room that is 10'x10' (3m x 3m). Since it is in the attic and we live in a warmer climate, it will require extensive insulation. I am actually planning to install a window A/C unit for climate control in the summer (winter isn't an issue). I purchased and installed a 20amp breaker to handle the lighting, A/C, and other misc. loads. We have WIFI, so internet isn't an issue. My question is: If you could build a room from scrap based on the information given above, what would you include? I may end up incorporating some of the suggestions (based on cash flow). I also plan to post a picture of my new hideaway to this site once it is completed (including the boxes stacked to the ceiling, of course).
    I guess whatever you are doing is perfect if I were in your place would have gone for the same

    Let me count the reasons:

    2) Anything involving @LegoFanTexas
