My home arcade is better than Galaxy World!
Arcade Building Project
A collectors dream! Designing and refurbing an arcade building to house my collection and my guests. It is a significant undertaking, but well worth it.
When I bought my house, along with it came this building. My neighbors proclaim that it is the "best damn garage in town." I totally agree. It is solid brick and has 30' x 30' of floor space on 3 floors. That's right, this garage has a full basement and a loft as well. Actually, it was at one time the machine shop for the town. I think this building is too good to park cars in, so I plan on building another garage and convert this building into just one hell of a nice arcade/bar/hangout/denofevil/etc.

To Do:
Right now everything is tentative but here is my "to do" list for this building.
  • Reshingle roof
  • Install vapor barrier on interior walls
  • Stud interior walls
  • Rewire interior/Install new 60A breaker panel
  • Replumb the bathroom/replace bathroom walls
    The bathroom right now looks comparable to some of the more disgusting service station restrooms I've encoutered in my life. BUT it's totally refurb-able
  • Drywall/plaster/tape/sand/paint (like it will happen that fast, heh)
  • Install new fixtures
  • Install new furnace
  • Install new carpet
  • Move arcade games in
  • Have throwdown 'Grand opening' party :)

  • "Follow! But follow only if ye be men of valor, for the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought with it and lived! Bones of four fifty men lie strewn about its lair. So, brave knights, if you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty big pointy teeth!"
