Building the Ultimate Game Room – Part 4: The Expansion

 

This is part four of a multi-part post chronicle my quest to have the ultimate board gaming man-cave.

If you are looking for part 1 try here or part 2 is here and part 3 is here.

A little over a year ago I made the statement “I think the room is pretty much finished at this point…but my obsessive streak may kick in at some point and lead me to more changes……“.

Well it did.  So here’s the next round of improvement and it’s a big one.

The current space is about 12′ x 13′ – or 156 square feet.  After shelving for games, floor lamps, chairs, and of course the GeekChic Emissary – the room can accommodate about 5 gamers comfortably.   This was starting to feel a bit cramped, so I have decided to convert one of the adjacent garage bays into gaming space.  This change will bring the room to a whopping 35′ x 13′.

My key goals with this expansion are:

  • Add space for more games
  • Add space for more gamers
  • An area for video gaming – for the “kids”

Here’s a rough idea of what the project entails

and here’s a few pictures.
