Back in October my Fiance' and I closed on our first home in Cumberland, RI.

We were living in a spacious apartment, in a wonderful neighborhood on the East side of Providence, Rhode Island. We loved the community, it was filled with nice quiet families.

On the weekends the local Jewish people would parade down the sidewalk and street dressed in their best on their way to temple. There were farmer markets and sidewalk artists. Also I always thought it was so cool living within biking distance of H.P. Lovecrafts eternal resting place at Swan Point Cemetary. We both loved it.

The rent was really cheap I mean really cheap. We were enjoying the extra cash and doing good at saving for our wedding and a house.

Then a couple moved in above us that are relatives of the landlord. They were in their late 40's but acted like teenage college students from that show the Jersey Shore. I had several confrontations with them and we decided cause there was no way they were going to leave we knew we had to.

So two years earlier then we planned we bought a house. It has lead to some difficult times and a lot more work then we were ready for but at least we have peace and quiet now.

This geeklist is about the progress of making one of the rooms into my gameroom/office.

I tried to use games in this list that receive little recognition and have a small mark on the world. I think we all feel that way about ourselves sometimes.

My door is always open to anyone from this great community here on BGG. So if your in the area and the light is on come knock on the door and we will have a game or two.

The ceiling was these 1'x 1' cardboard/fiberglass tiles that were painted over. I'm allergic to dust so I didn't think these were going to be a good idea to keep. Plus they just looked awful too.

As you can see the floor is in great shape so I knew that would make remodeling easy and much cheaper.

The closet is very narrow but it goes way back I knew I could fit plenty of games in there with the right shelves. Those wire shelves definatly have to go and get replaced by boards. No way I was going to store my collection on sheves that could leave dents in the boxes.

For me it's the details that matter. The walls are are hard to describe. The are wood panels, that are tongue and groove with grooves. The grooves leave spaces between the wall and the moulding like this...


Well anyone who knows me knows I can't have that so after way to much work it now looks like this.


BTW...Yes I do clip counters on my wargames too...

Almost there; The trim is all back up, the plaster work is completed, all gaps and imperfections have been filled sanded and fixed up. I put all new paneling up in the closet to clean up the past mistakes. All the priming is finished and we're ready to paint.

All finished I was very pleased with the new color and thought it all came together well. I like how the white really contrasts with the blue. The closet is really tight to reach down into but the shelves are perfect width to hold the biggest of boxes.

I was worried that everything I wanted to put in the room wasn't going to fit. I have to admit I cannot host a big game day event and have big parties. But the room and table can fit 4 players. And frankly not to be a downer but no one comes by anyways, cept sometimes my friend Chris. So there is tons of room for us.

Here is my desk.

My old drafting desk turned into an area for working on models. I think This will soon become a Dust mini painting station.

And last but not least the closet with most of my collection in it. This is when I just tried to see where stuff kind of fit and didn't organize it yet.
