Well hasn’t nearly two years flown by!
I had to stop all modeling activities due to a change of home. My wife and I got fed up trying to squeeze our family life, child, drums, trains, piano etc into our previous home. With a change of job on my part we had the opportunity to purchase a larger house in the same suburban town where we live. It’s about five miles away from our old house and is set in a redwood grove next to the national park. We are surrounded by greenery and the new house is definitely a step up from our previous home.
The house is 3800 square feet (twice the size of our previous home) and has a separate garage. Underneath the garage there are two more rooms which I decided to use for my hobbies: drums and model trains.
The only hiccup in the overall plan was that the train room was in a bare unfinished state and was not ‘model train ready’. The drum room however was habitable and I had a drum sound booth built in the space to play and practice drum without disturbing my wife and neighbours.
However I am days away from the train room remodeling project being finished and I’m ready to get back to the hobby.
