    We converted the dining room in our old farmhouse into our game room. It’s small and modest but we love it. Not shown is the Pinbot in the living room (grateful for a wife who likes pins as much as I do) and a Blackout in my upstairs office.

    Having a house built in Florida and will have a bedroom turned into a game room. I had the GC extend the room a bit. It will be 18’x20’ I will have sliding glass doors to the pool area and I told him I wanted 1 small window on rear wall 12” down from ceiling and 1’x7’ length. The GC and architect argued with me saying that window is to small for that size room. Had to tell them it’s a game room and I don’t want much light entering the room and it’s my house not yours. Haha. Finally construction has begun. Game room will be to the back left corner on photo. As of now Stem wall foundation is complete.

    Still pecking away with the addition's upstairs. Better than 1/3 of the hardwood flooring's down,
    and thin set the bricks in last week, and did the porcelin ceramic floor tile today..
    Secondpity, what a great purchase for tools (and many other items). Pretty much half price.
    DeWalt floor nailer $140.00, Porter cable pancake compressor with Finish nailer, Brad nailer, and
    pin nailer $129.00 They have to sell their merchandise as used because the box was opened, but
    realistically brand new.. Free shipping..
    btw: I haven't seen any Stern Pinballs for $3,750.00 because the box was opened. At least not yet..

    The look on the builders faces when you tell them you want a 1 bedroom, 3 bathroom mansion.

    housewoopi1 (resized).jpg

    housewoopi2 (resized).jpg

    housewoopi3 (resized).jpg

    It only gets worse when you tell them you want doors onto the roof so you can shoot skeet and play tennis.

    Pins and bar area under the residence. Full length deck will open out to the side from the residence/mezzainie floor (not pictured yet).

    You should start a separate thread to cover the progress of your little project.

    I was thinking the same. I have my pins in my garage, and I get all antsy when the wife or kids leave any of the doors open. "The sun is going to fade all my stuff!"

    I have a set of sliders in my basement close to my games and ended up installing UV blocking film to prevent fading.

    Quoted from Palmer:

    I was going to ask this - surely there is some sort of window covering (not shades, hardy har) that significantly reduces UV light

    Unfortunately i still have to run my business a couple hours a day to live this life.

    I also have only a Transit van for carting pinballs around and whatever shopping i do. I find motorcycles more interesting than cars which are only transport for me since i sold my '61 Corvair Rampside.

    The building is designed so that it is able to be retrofitted. there will be all the engineering to convert the pallet rack area to more bedrooms and living areas with mezzanine floor and ensuites or a different business (might go back into gourmet mushrooms and give the Stilldragon still supply business to my brother it's more than i need and he has a family). It'll also have the steel engineered so an extension can go up top on the flat part as i know the building will outlast me and i also know the demand for one bedroom mansions is not high

    Funny bit was i sat down with a pencil and a ruler to design my dream house and i drew what i already had, but standalone instead of the 2 out of four units i have. Same size, same layout pretty much. I'm a very lucky man having the ability to be satisfied with what i have and not constantly want more. I've had goals all my life, but now i've reached them.

    Will do, i have to get some ducks in a row and the purpose of the concept drawings is to get costings on the building. once i know what those figures are, i'll know if i can afford to buy the land here in Heaven. Then comes the hard part as all the land here is under blueberries.

    That actually sounds quite amazing!

    Thanks, it will be the biggest project i've undertaken, assuming i can get it off the ground. I want to get further away from neighbours.
    I have a weightlifting gym next door who shake the roof and walls. That doesn't bother me, but they complain all the time about how much noise i make!

    GnR was not a welcome addition in their eyes as now they can't here their beats while i'm playing.

    Little different than my last game room but glad we were able to keep at least one. Probably a couple years or more till the next room is built.

    We have triple pane argon gas injected glass windows that were put in our new construction home in Texas 3 years ago. They block about 97% of UV light into the home. There is a slight, and by slight I mean very slight green hue to them when viewed from the outside. Double pane argon block about 80%...

    Argon leaks out after a couple of years (at least on double pane), so keep in mind to check every so often!

    So what happened to the old gameroom? You had an epic one with the Tron machine, movie theater and all. You moved to another city? Sold all? Sterting something new?

    Good point as well, on that note just had ours inspected after 5 years with a meter, still going strong and no seal leaks yet. I'm OCD about preventative home MX

    Like you said, your room not mine, but I would be inclined to agree with them. They are looking out for your resale value if you ever think you might sell. There are plenty of ways to block out light from a window including those flush mount, electric blackout blinds. As someone who has moved A LOT and therefore had to look at a lot of houses on the market, weird things really stand out when house shopping. Our brains are literally looking for something to say no to.

    Is this all in one room or two? Really like the lineup and the setup though it looks like Aerosmith probably doesn't get a whole lot of play, at least I don't think I would fit.

    Today the replacement Globe came in for my Silver ball ceiling fan.
    You can order the fan without the light kit, and have just a silver ball.

    Thank you for your concern. I did view many model homes down here in Florida and some had the same 1x7 window in the master bedroom and that window combined with the 93” sliding patio doors to the backyard pool area (lanai) let in more then enough light. As of resale your are right about picky buyers, when I put my house for sale in NY a potential buyer was complaining to their agent that my couch was to big for the living room and that discourage them from buying the house. Haha. My furniture..really? To that...Move on and let the next potential buyer view the house.
