    Hi all,

    so, we've been plugging away on the house and are edging ever closer to our planned extension (I sadly had to go for replacing double glazing, some cladding and will have to do a new kitchen first! but once that's all done I can move onto extension)

    Now, this is a bit of fun for a thread really so look away if you're expecting anything to be taken literally, just a bit of a melting pot for ideas and a "what would you do" kinda thing.

    Ok, the new garage will be 9m x 5m.
    Within this area I would like:
    To VERY occasionally put 2 cars - I mean perhaps once a year when the house is full for xmas.
    A pool table (7' x 4')
    I have cabinets fitted in a corner, they will stay (kitchen cupboards around two corner walls)

    Other than that it's an open space.

    the main aim for the room will be a games room/Workshop.

    How would you lay things out?

    see this guy has the right idea, Bar, pool table, TV, Darts. That's what I'm after - the room next door will be a large reception room which is open to the kitchen and dinner so the garage is destined to be the fun area for as much cool stuff as possible.

    wonder where I can find a boogie wonderland floor haha.

    love the ideas, really like the arcade machine idea, actually started looking for whack a mole! kid friendly so win me some brownie points for making the man cave more of a family cave.

    Don't mind the idea of sega but I think i'd regret not just building something more realistic with a PS4 and decent steering wheel etc.

    I quite like the look of the pandora games boxes, so perhaps an arcade console would be cool
