Well 8 years after having everything in storage since we had a house big enough to have a room spare to display all my SW stuff I'm currently in the process of unboxing everything and setting up the space.

We've spent the last 2 1/2 years on our 'Grand Designs' project converting a Victorian church into our dream home.

Part of the design has left me with a c.14x12 ft office/collection room. I have a set of Ikea Besta units from the last display and about 50 boxes worth of GG busts, maquette and statues to unbox.

Sneak peak from outside!


The boxes!


Shelves in place and ready to go



More to follow tomorrow!

Will post some pics of the building and build project is anyone's interested.

Congrats on the convertion and getting to have it all done the way you wanted it. I like your flooring, by the way. Also, its great to have now all that space for your collectibles. The fun part is then about to start getting all your "treasures" out of their boxes. It's like opening Christmas presents. Enjoy it all. I'm looking forward to see it all set up.

I had my collection stored away once... Then built a shelf wall thinking I'd have plenty of room. Boy was I wrong. Lots more shelves now and still stuff stored.

Post pics of the building project too. Sounds cool.

Realised I never actually posted any images! Current setup attached, as you can see it was all getting a little cramped with new additions so I've just purchased another two units so the plan for tomorrow is to have a reordering.

Annoyingly I need to move the main wall units about 100mm to the left so everything needs to come off - gives me an excuse to dust everything I supposed.

Room for one more unit in due course and then there's a topped available for them to add another shelf to the top effectively - should keep me going while i fill gaps.

I'll post pics of the new setup once done.
