I have a small apartment and I've utilized the dining room area, it place is laid out like back entrance, kitchen/bedroom (very cramped kitchen), bathroom/fridge area (where I store lots of cases of beer, could potentially be turned into a one pin area), then the dining room, then the living room/front door. I don't think I could fit anything in the living room, but I do think I could fit 5, maybe more pins in the dining room. We never used it for dining anyway. I don't consider the place large, but it does have high celings, which is a huge plus.
So if any of ya need to store another machine or two.. My place is fine for that! I can get rid of that dining room table! End tables are better anyway.
