after I’d started on the console, building it in our garage, my other half started
to complain that the cars were getting left outside a lot. Fortunately I was
able to move the project to a couple of rooms in our house with 10 foot
ceilings. One room has the Police box in one corner, leading through to the
other room, which has become the console room. This room has power, phone and a
computer network outlet in the middle of the room up through the floor to
provide for a
free-standing desk. It also has a concrete floor, which produces a great
"studio" ambience. The only difficulty is that the room is a
little small, though at 14x21 feet, it's not a small room. The other
problem is that 10 feet high is only barely tall enough, though the room I
have is actually 9'8".
Well one thing led to
another and soon I was building wall panels. These eventually led
to an entire console room.
Here are a couple of short
