Relocating ate a lot of time, killed participation in four campaigns but finally it is coming to an end. And the new modelling area was worth it IMHO:

Big building space (and some extension space left)



Storage (and another 80cm IVAR rack can be added):



Space for the results:



And the Internet nearby:



No carpet, no furniture that can eat small parts. Lots of space. Good heating, huge windows.

I'm jealous. I share an office with my dad. I don't even have room for my kits. Of course, I do have a mill and lathe taking up half my space.

Nice use of space, looks real inviting. I have a 14ft by 14ft workshop, it's so messy I find it hard to work in.

Agreed with everyone else that it's a nice space.

If I had to give some feedback, I'd say get some more light. I have one of those desk clamp IKEA lamps, and they don't put off too much light.

Yes, the Ikea lights alone are not enough. There is a big neon lamp on the cyling and the desk lamps are used to remove any shadows and give detail lighting.

Very nice room. Plenty of space, natural light and ventilation. Looks like a great place to hang out and relax. Nice display of models on your shelf as well.

I know halogens provide great lighting. The only reason I switched to an ott light is because my halogen lamp went bad. I still have a brand new bulb for it. Given, the ott light is much better, it doesn't provide as much light as the larger halogen did.

Until September my work environment was similar. Studends desk in the kitchen of a 1 room appartment. But I finally got my behind to move an relocate after 13 years and treated myself to a largish but cheap appartment in an average income part of town. That is the master bedroom - being single I do not need it and snoring I won't need it even if not single :-)
