    Quoted from briyau15:

    This is an absolute shot in the dark but would anyone happen to know what site or stores sell a poster frame that doubles as a hidden door like the one shown here?

    Pretty sure you have to make your own using hidden door hardware, something like this:

    If i wanted that I'd speak to a local carpenter or cabinet maker after drawing what i wanted on a piece of paper. Probably get exactly what you want, tradesman made, fitted and for less that the cost of a dodgy factory job plus freight, plus installation.

    #21603 1 year ago

    It's probably custom made. That's what we did for our Library door.

    Tile floor - best heat transfer... <snip>... no matter what tile you pick one day it will be outdated.

    Or you can mix up some colors and make it timeless

    Quoted from not4tilts:

    I am moving to the beautiful state of Wisconsin

    If you don't mind me asking, where in Wisconsin are you moving to? I think that anyone that was local to where you're going would want to welcome you into the area as it's always good to have another local pinhead.

    #21606 1 year ago

    My guess is that’s a custom made door and the ‘poster’ is an image that was custom printed to that size at a printing shop.

    Quoted from Days:

    The first one of my ten pinball machines arrived to my new home's gameroom, still lot's of works to do, but, i already did a first game one it!
    Well, i think he feels a bit alone there, i need to solve that problem!

    The lonely Scorcerer. Looks like that’s going to be a nice space!

    No - don't mind your asking at all. Rock Springs - population 330. I will probably be the only pinhead in the town I plan to invite my new neighbors over for some pinball!!

    #21609 1 year ago

    Once upon a time, I lived outside of Baraboo, on Terrytown Rd...anyway, I'm familiar with Rock Springs, even though I don't live near there anymore. I feel like there are a couple of pinheads in the area so while you may be the only one in Rock Springs, you won't be the only one in the area. Of course, with only 330 people in town, everyone is going to quickly hear about the new person in town and their pinball machines! Hope the move goes smoothly for you.

    That thing is very cool. I sense a rabbit hole I’m going to be headed down…

    What was the approximate cost for the build?

    Quoted from Pinkitten:

    I’m proud to share pics of my finally finished gameroom. I started this project the last weekend in May when I rented a dumpster to clean out several years of junk, boxes, bugs, cobwebs and debris…7 months or so later and a new roof, siding, insulation, ceiling, etc. etc.…I’m finally finished, except for adding another couple pins, if I can! Thanks for looking!

    If you use Google Chrome, it should suggest translating to English. Not sure if you’re on a phone, but the computer version shows a pop-up when it detects the language

    Finally able to post some decent before pics after clearing out the storage room. Still nothing to see at this point but work should be starting tomorrow to get this space finished. Still deciding on overall theme and look. Trying to decide whether this would be a dedicated arcade/pinball pop culture room or if I make it more versatile with it being more of a lounge area that just happens to have pinball machines in it.

    [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    The struggle is real! I opted to have a music, home theater room with arcade games in it but being limited to 4-5 pins makes selection harder!

    What are the "roller skates" that your pins are on and where did you get them? They look like they would be great for any pin on a hard surface.

    Quoted from SimpleSam:

    Any good hardware store or big box home center. They are useful, not expense, but not great if you have any cracks, grooves or unevenness on your floor.

    Quoted from not4tilts:

    I am moving to the beautiful state of Wisconsin (escape from Illinois!) and our new house has in floor radiant heat in the cement. I was considering an epoxy type floor but am leaning toward carpet for the acoustics. Does anyone have any pros/cons/recommendations with regard to carpet over radiant heat? I like to work on games and the room I have now has a cement floor and is really easy to move games and clean up. Seems like carpet might reduce heat transfer some.
    Here's pics of the new space.
    [quoted image][quoted image]

    Opinions from Snow Mexico (i.e. Canada).

    I have had three homes with radiant in floor heating and there are ZERO issues with heat transfer when the slab is covered with underlay and carpet.

    Radiant heat is more efficient than furnace heat. Run the radiant thermostat at a higher temp than the furnace thermostat.

    Carpet and underlay is nicer on the feet. But that brings up another debate about wearing shoes in the house. (In Canada that's a big no no, but depending on your State taking shoes off inside a house may be considered odd.)

    Oh yeah you have! Your garage and room with all the playfields on the walls and ceiling. Awesome. And, you usually have people playing pins in your pics, which I always like to see. Did you see my new garage gameroom I just finished finally? Took me 7 months and a bloated budget.

    I was today years old when I found out there aren’t basements in Florida! I grew up with basements in Windsor, it’s where we hung out. Most of the time we weren’t allowed upstairs, hardly any of them were finished. There was a Rug, TV, Atari/Nintendo, an old worn out couch and chair, and maybe an old coffee table.

    There aren't any basements at all in Australia.
