    We're getting settled in our new home, and I get my own first floor music room (thanks to the better half). Currently a work in progress!

    There's nothing better than having a mice place to sit and place.

    cool. awesome that you get this space.

    we are looking to move next summer, if we can find teaching jobs, and my wife has already started browsing houses on Zillow, and when she was listing what she wants, one of the top things on HER list was a music room for me. that and a Room for each child.

    currently i sort of have a music room, but it kinda sucks. we have a bonus room, but it is a converted garage. so it is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. it is right off our living room, and had no closet, so we decided not to use it as a bedroom. so as is now, my two boys share a room with a bunk bed. ( they are 2 and 5, so they are good for now)

    anwyay that room was supposed to be the "man cave" i had planned on basically making it a home theater. well here we are five years later, no tv in there no chairs or couches in there. a desk and book shelf full of my comics and nerdy nicknacks. my guitars and amps, Bicycles, tricycles and power wheels, an old kitchen table with my daughters keyboard, some old bar stools, a bed for guests. basically its just a messy storage room, unless guests are coming over.

    So ideally the next house will have an actual garage for the bikes, and what not, the extra bed will be one of the boys beds and when we have guests they will use his room and the boys will bunk up while guests visit, and i will actually have my dedicated music room. well mine and my daughter's since she now has 3 instruments of her own.

    looks great very nice but how can you write the next teen angst rebel rock anthem in a Bark-a-lounger lazy-boy recliner. by my official count musty basement trumps that set-up. :D

    Everyone deserves a personal space to close the door and recharge. This looks perfect. Congrats and enjoy it!

    Very nice. My wife and I moved into a new home, but I lost my dedicated music room, having to do for now with the second bedroom.

    Nice, I've been working on mine for a few weeks. Macbook Pro broke down again, so it's back to pencil and paper. It's the biggest room in the house. :D

    Cool congrats. Might want to make sure your guitars don't get any direct sunlight. They might get skin cancer.

  18. Did you steal that paper and writing mechanism from a museum?
