In the beginning, there was just garage. I was able to talk my wife into letting me finish one corner and make an official “train room”. The location was perfect, it was out of the way and one wall was shared with the house. I had an electrical panel right there easy to tie into and heating/air was easily brought out. There was even an exterior window! (That I replaced) I *thought* a 10×14 room was going to be huge and be the answer to everyone model railroaders dream. It did not take long to realize the saying “I need more room” was ever so true! Here is a gallery of photos showing the progress, from framing the walls all the way to paint and carpet. Lessons learned? I probably would have moved the door to a corner rather than the middle of the wall.
