Some of you may recall seeing the attached picture which I posted a few months back, garage full of toys shipped from storage in the US. Well it took some creativity as well as some sweet talk and promises but I've now got them all in the house. Our guest room is certainly not as spacious now but it looks "homey". I learned that if you bring stuff in a little at a time, couple boxes of records one day, a Triumph the next, etcetera it's not so frightening to those less interested in the hobby.

At some point I actually promised that I'd sell a few, which is a promise I intent to honor... at some point but not in the forseeable future. My wife says she knew that all along. :monkey:

Bruce,

That's a good strategy, too bring in a little at a time.
Now that you got it all in, I guess you don't have to be afraid to run over a horn with your car :lol:

Paal.

Is one of the machines playing? The little boy covering his ear looks like the typical family member when a machine is playing :)

OK,OK-- we see the before, now where's the after pictures showing the creativity and homey look? My wife just calls it cluttered, but she puts up with it pretty well most of the time.
