Over a year ago, my wife granted me permission (bless her heart) to have my own hobby room….in the smallest room of the house (besides the toilet), on condition that I would make our old mutual hobbyroom into the new room for our girls.

I've just spent 6 days making all of that happen.


Come have a look and see how I got it all in place, what's what and maybe get a few handy ideas for your own (future) room.

Great job. The first thing I did when our oldest moved into her old place was to claim her former bedroom (converted garage), as my den/study/game room. It has been great.

I read that as 12m 20cm as in length. Still 4 x 3 meters is a very decent space – and it's all yours!

I have the same ikea drawer sets stacked like that. They are a wargamers dream come true and very reasonable..

Great progress….at least you have a room in the house…my shed is inaccessible for 3 months of the year

Yay! Looks great. Have fun.

I think I am going to have to get some of those Billy cabinets- they look super handy.

Nice work. I wish I could do something like that.

What is the source of those great multiple stack drawers?

Re: Bob's your uncle!

It has been suggested that the expression arose after Prime Minister Lord Salisbury (Robert Cecil) appointed his nephew Arthur Balfour as Chief Secretary for Ireland in 1887. The appointment was both surprising and widely unpopular. Balfour was not generally considered as adequate to the job and his appointment was thought rather nepotistic; Balfour later went on to succeed Salisbury as Prime Minister in 1902.

The expression implies that "it's who you know, not what you know" that gets you the result or that the result was achieved with much less effort than was envisaged.
