Wargaming Loft WIP

Anyone who has dropped by my blog in the past few months will have read that I have been getting my loft floored and turned into a storage room (wargaming room). So I thought it was about time I posted some pictures of how it is coming along.

The project stopped for a couple of months with Mai and I over in the Philippines and our joiner Paul building a castle round his house (yes a castle!!!) as his daughter was the queen at a local gala day.

While we were away my brother David kept the project on track and it is really coming together well and we can now see an end in sight.

There will be storage spaces for all our junk (mostly mine :-) under the roof angles.
And with good use of an unused cupboard we have a stair up into the loft.
Von Hannah donated some 2x2 wargaming tiles he was getting rid of so when it's all complete and I have a few tables they will do until I make up my mind what my plans are. I couldn't resist getting some troops out for a photoshoot!!!

Hi Paul - love the "storage room" bit! Look forward to seeing it completed.

The storage room,(wink, wink), is coming along nicely! How bigger table do you think you'll get in?

Ken said...

Looking good Paul! I'm so envious, its kitchen table for me.

I'm glad you had the space for stairs as a pull down ladder wouldbe a nightmare.

The "storage room" is coming along nicely I think.

That's what I planned to do, but the building inspector made it so the access hatch is in the middle of the bloody floor! Glad to see you had more success cos my loft is not flooded with even more crap than I've got in the garage! >:O(

Thanks for the words of support guys.

I have my fingers crossed that it will be finished by end of July as I am itching to get painting again properly. Sitting on the living floor just isn't working out!

I have always wanted my own little space to flaff around in. There will be a nice comfortable chair in the corner for Mai to sit and read with a glass of rose.

paulalba said...

Cheers guys,
Ray I am not sure how much bigger? I am sure I will get a 6'x6' maybe an 8'x8'? will take pictures when it's done.

Not sure what Hochu is or Skoro?

I think it will be cool Razor1!

Des will I mark you down as a possible visitor for the future? I will need to start working on my French and Bavarians to give my Russians and Prussians a run for their money!
Regards guys

Hi Paul,

The loft is looking great, a worthy museum to house your stunning collection. You are correct that I've sort of abandoned my post over at Knight Craft - I've been painting watercolors this summer - not knights. I need to focus back again on my sculpting. Please tell your wife I was born in Quezon City, my mom was Filipina and my dad was from Connecticut. I lived there till I was about four and we immigrated to the United States. I would love to go back some time soon.

Mr. B
