We live in a house that's been in our family since it was built in the early 1870s- my great-great grandfather and later my great grandfather had a small store and tavern that's built into the front of the house, a section of which was my old work area. We decided to renovate and change the area to more living space. We also have another old building right next to the house that was at the stage of needing a roof if we wanted to save it- we also decided to sheet and wrap it- still needs some more work but have most of the stuff moved in

Made up a work bench out of some of the old bins we were tearing out of the store as well as saving some old shelving

Your hobby room looks great and it looks like you have a great "stash" pile also. Good luck with your new hobby room.

It's nice to you see you saving an old building and reusing the shelving. I sometimes like to think of myself as an urban archeologist (fancy term for someone that trespasses in abandon buildings) and those shelves and the building are so cool. Your stash has me envious. You really hit the trifecta with that space and everything.

Wow thats great that you are able to keep and save something that has been in your family for so long, what an awesome building. I could see myself spending way too much time in there by my wifes standards, kudos and happy modeling! :angry:

Between the history and the execution, all I can say is this is really cool. Good luck with the rennos and take some pictures when you're done.

Very cool! :( Nice stash too, but I couldn't help notice you have doubles and triples of some kits. But fear not, we are always ready to swing into action to help alleviate over-stuffed stashes!!

A man-cave to die for, Chris. Looks good. Do me a favot, though, and put a handrail on that staircase.
