Back up in the roof....Part the Second
At last! The revitalised man cave is now officially open for business. The last of the bits and pieces that needed putting away are now safely in deep storage and what is left is now a much more spacious set up then previously.
The main part of the library is now along one wall with my folding 6 by 4ft table stored with a pair of 3 by 2ft boards in the top left corner. The table you see in the centre is 5 by 3ft and has plenty of space all around it (you can see this better in the next picture). Note the CD storage rack at the top of the radiator on the right - it is one of a pair and I plan to have a bridging shelf between the two over the radiator for some extra usable surfaces.
The change around took me rather longer than I expected but the end result is definitely worth it. Once I have the radiator bridge in place I can redeploy some of the items dotted around so the space will seem even more, well, spacious.
The view from the opposite corner - taken with my back to the stored playing boards seen in the previous picture. The space around the table can now be seen much more readily. You can see the CD storage towers at either end of the radiator and why I shall bridge them - it will give me another flat surface for 'stuff'. The doors lead into the roof eaves and we also have them on the other side. The loft access is just behind the electric fan. We also have two windows in the roof so in the summer these are often opened to allow fresh air to circulate.
The table itself has some current 'work-in-progress' items - the last two block army upgrades (brown and olive green) and a box of 1/1200th ancient galleys, more of which later....;-)
