    The Bombatorium

    Been buried with requests about my latest project since returning home, and the continued reason my library is still in storage.... So for those who keep asking me, here is a brief update on the progress of the Bombatorium - my eventual (the project from hell) new home for the collection, library, and my office.

    First picture, exterior is nearly finished. 50' long by 40' deep, 2000 square feet on the ground floor.

    Pictures 2-6 are various views of the ground floor. Lots of overhead support gives me excellent capacity to hang whater I want off the ceiling or move anything upstairs. Furnace and water heater to be installed next week.

    Second floor is for the office and library. Overall dimensions are 25' x 50', for another 1250 square feet. 1st picture is an early view, to give an idea of the space. 2-3 will become the office, 4-6 will be for the bookshelves. Not shown is the third floor, which is an additional 800 square feet of starage space. More updates in a few weeks.

    That looks like it's going to be awesome when it's done. Do ex-colleagues get a discount on the admission fee?

    I really like the big open space in your new building! I need to work on an addition to Bombatorium West when I get caught up on some finances. Damn bombs take up a lot of floor space.
