Moving House, because of lack of space for my cd's!
« on: April 08, 2007, 07:42:01 AM »
Well finally, the bullet is through the church!
My music room, big enough as it is, has outgrown the multitude of cd's floating in.
So I will set my house for sale, and buy a much bigger house, twice as big that is.
My listening room has to be trice the size it has now., 20 square metres.
And that at my age! ;D

I feel your pain, Harry.  I'm most likely going to be adding a room on to my house later this year to get more space, but even then my music room dilemma won't be solved.  But, I do have a closet that takes up around 35 square feet that could be removed and used for CD storage.  While the contractors are here . . .

Well I could have done that too, but that would not add to the worth of the house, so it is better to buy a bigger house.

Remember to post the house in "Harry's Purchases Today" after you close.  ;D

Good luck, health and happiness under your new roof.  Yes, and loads of time to listen to new music.

Harry - I'm w/ Todd & you - always running out of space, but gives me an excuse to buy new tools & build storage units!  Couple of months ago, I completed this walnut (looks a lot prettier than the pic) combo bookcase & wall CD storage unit for our computer room (a spare bedroom) - moved a bunch of non-classical CDs - holds about 500 (so just a temporary solution -  ;) ;D).  I'm trying to at least keep all of the classical discs in the den, my main listening room - good luck in your house hunting!  :)

  Of course, I could use the bookshelves for CD storage, too - hmmm (the shelves are adjustable!).

I need to find a place that will make me a unit like the one you have atop the bookcase or a unit I can mount on the wall, as I have run of space too!  :-[

George - yep, I look at the 'nooks & crannies' in my den, and just try to design a storage box to fit, like the ones below built in the last 6 months or so (2 to replace older, smaller & less attractive units) - all are attached to vertical surfaces and only about 5 1/2" in depth (except the one w/ doors, add 1/2").  All made from mahogany & much more attractive 'in person' - need to find a woodworking buddy in up in your area - BUT, I'm already thinking about future locations!  Yipes -  ::) :D  Dave

told ya, digitize your music. Get your music onto a harddrive or two, and sell the cds, or something. Get on with time, this is the era of digital revolution.

Dave, those are beautiful.

LOL -  ;D  Yep, I was goin' to suggest the Biltmore House in Asheville if Harry has an urge to move to North Carolina!  :)

Hey, thanks for the comment - I wish the pics would do the woodworking more justice, but one more below of the door cabinet before mounting to show the nice 'finger joints' - one of the others has 'dovetail joints'  :)
