A fun idea. I am really looking forward to setting up a basement shop soon as we have just bought a house - right now we are in a two-bedroom, downtown, high-rise apartment. As you can imagine it is an interesting challenge - I have two bikes on the balcony (both MTBs), my Bob Jackson in the living room, my Raleigh in the hall-way, the PX10E in pieces in one corner of my home-office along with the Jack Taylor and Falcon frames and forks, spare wheel-sets, my work-stand, tool-box, parts boxes, tyres, trainer, etc. etc.

Our oddest set-up, from about 1977 - 1979, helped me appreciate that I wasn't cut out to be an academic. We lived in faculty housing at an Ivy League U. 4 bedrooms. One for us, one for the baby, one spare, and the downstairs one fitted out with a hanging rack for the bikes... but, the piece de resistance was the partitioned living room. The sofa backed up on my 8' long work bench (which I still have), with a shop light hanging over it. The Var bike stand behind, with cabinets for parts. Clearly, I wasn't cut out to be an academic. Fortunately, I realized it in time to have savored its good points and learned other skills to grow with.
