    Interior. It doesn't photograph well.
    Front room leading to porch. It will have a bar and connect to a full bath.

    Just curious; why do you have the NM wiring looped around prior to entering the electrical boxes? The inspectors in my area insist that the wires get stapled to the stud within 6 inches of the box entry. And, they want a 6 in. working length outside of each box.

    Maybe the code in your area is different? It would be nice to have some slack on those wires every once in a while...

    #5810 3 years ago

    Can't wait to see it finish and fill up with pins

    I have no idea, but will ask the electrician. Im glad you asked. I'll get to learn something new.

    When one game room is not enough ... Time for a second one.

    My car garage is dead. Long live the car garage. Mind you, I've lived here for two years now and I have never parked a car in there anyway, it's always been full of f**king pinball machines lol

    And the Hercules needed to go somewhere ....

    Work in progress but the carpet has been done. Eventually all the EM and System 7 games will come over here.

    Almost certainly a code requirement in his area. Where I live that is how it has to be done.

    Quoted from Brazy:

    Nice set up. .a friend of mine is releasing a cd this week with a guy that toured with hank lll playing fiddle. .David Mcelfresh . I got to play some tracks on it also . Just thought that was a cool coincidence seeing your pics.

    Nice! I'm a huge Hank fan, I've listened to David a whole lot over the last few years as he seems to be the one that played on his last 2 albums... What's the name of the guy putting out the album? What do you play on it?
    I have a band too, just beer leaguers, but played a lot of shows locally over the years. We're recording a new album a month from now. The first one's here (https://damntheluck.bandcamp.com), we've upped our game a whole lot since then.
    We have a song about pinball that I'll pitch here when it comes out

    #5821 3 years ago

    I like the construction pics! I think they're best digested in a short period where quick progress can be seen, though.

    I stuck this in another thread, but here is the batcave with a bunch of games setup in it - still very much a work in progress. Still a bunch of stuff that is unfinished including the floor:

    If you look at the window in the second picture, that's the inside of the swimming pool.

    This whole room is the side of the pool. Very cool setup.

    Sometimes when you're playing the pins, the kids swim up and wave through the window. Nice one!

    We have a song about pinball that I'll pitch here when it comes out

    His name is Lynn Callihan. He has a website and is on Facebook. I did some backing mandolin and guitar. David did fiddle and mandolin. Lynn took tracks from a few friends and used the best for each song. Lynncallihan.net is his website. I used to play out with him a few years ago until he moved to Michigan but kids and job keeps me from playing as much as i used to. I pretty much like all music and play a few different instruments. I've built up a nice musical collection over the years and have been selling some stuff off to help pay for this damn pinball habit lol. Pm me if you want to keep up on trading music..I'd like to hear the pinball song! And I'll check out your other stuff also

    You see, not for the cold weather, but I'm the kind of guy who'd rather acquire a diecast miniature instead of a revell model kit!

    Guest room turned gameroom

    Nice idea! Let's see what my wife will think of it!

    #5831 3 years ago
    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    image_(resized).jpeg

    My unused guest room is up 2 flights of stairs. No pins up there unless I get an escalera, or a really strong buddy.

    #5832 3 years ago
    Quoted from AlexSMendes:

    Mine gave up about 2 years back.

    #5833 3 years ago
    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    Guest room turned gameroom

    My upstairs front room has become the "newest addition" space for 2 pins plus my custom project. We don't get down in the basement much, so I want at least 2 titles upstairs that I can play at any time. As each new title comes in, one gets chosen to be banished to the basement.

    #5834 3 years ago

    More like my "second game room" really. I reorganized the garage last weekend so that I could play the games in my restoration queue... 11 of my 15 projects work, but I couldn't play them until now.

    #5835 3 years ago
    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    You mean guestroom turned into GuestRoom! I would stay in that guestroom any day!

    I think I could squeeze in a cot perhaps. Always welcomed. Bring beer.

    Air mattress.....much more comfortable. Guests get a kick out of sleeping amongst the games.

    #5838 3 years ago

    Scanning the thread, will be building a new gameroom from scratch in not too distant future....maybe 25 machines plus misc. Looking at multiple 20 amp circuits correct? 8-10. Put outlets everywhere basically?

    Any other sage advice besides overkill the electric?

    Yeah, overkill on the outlets both high and low mounted.

    #5840 3 years ago

    I went low on my outlets for future resale. The "game house" will have a 200amp service. 4 different circuits in the game room. Good lighting. Good AC or heat for Yankees.

    #5841 3 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    low on my outlets

    Low towards the floor or low # of outlets?

    #5842 3 years ago

    Low towards the floor. Lots of outlets!

    This surely has to be the best collection in Australia! Congrats sir.

    Quoted from Gerrard17:

    Not even close. One of the largest collectors in the world lives in QLD (approx 2500 machines - not a typo).

    It is nice to have some of my games setup permanently though so thanks!

    #5845 3 years ago

    Seriously!?! Who and where is that? I need to befriend this person lol

    #5846 3 years ago
    Quoted from rotordave:

    I can put up some construction pics too if you want ... I got folders full of them.

    Make a separate thread for your build. I'd love to see pictures of your space go up.

    Living room's gotten a makover lately.

    room_(resized).jpg

    #5848 3 years ago

    Put 12 outlets on each 20 amp circuit, 6 at 16 in. and the other 6 at 48 in. This way, if you install pinball machines, the cord will be completely hidden in the back, and it's easier to keep the floor clean.

    Also, if you are considering placing neon signs on the walls, put some outlets at 60 in. to accommodate the power for the sign, again, to keep cords out of sight.

    Then put a few outlets in the ceiling, to power "floating" games (bowling or arcade machines) that don't meet a wall.

    There are no published limits as to how many outlets you can put on a single circuit, but a reasonable limit is 12 outlets for each 20 amp circuit. Go the limit, you won't regret it. And it has nothing to do with resale of the home either.

    Is there no need to put in a surge suppressor...or is there a surge built in to the circuit?

    I was meaning my commercial property builds .. I'm a property developer. Don't think anyone wants to see those here... Oh what the heck, here's one of those photos.

    The pinball room build photos are in this thread already ... Go up the top to the TOOLS and search for my posts in this thread. The house started construction about 3 years back I guess.

    Sweet!
