    You forgot the comfy cushion in the fireplace for the site manager to curl up on Well done that man, it looks splendid.
    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

        Nice job that looks a thousand times better than the first photo. As you say, shelves are apt to fill up once installed. The cat is a nice touch- 'The cat maketh a room' as some Greek fellow once said. I've just had a new window put in my record room (against my wishes) and I'm going to use it as an opportunity to remodel the room. I'm not looking forward to it. It looks like this at the moment. If I sort it out I'll post another picture (bear in mind where I'm standing to take the photo looks similar)

          Great work mate, I'm ashamed to say my cats are banned from the record room on the whole especially unsupervised, claws being one of a few reasons!

              We've had 5 cats, and -touch wood- none of them has shown the slightest bit of interest in my records.

In the past she has barred me from putting shelves in front of the windows, and I have tried to explain it's the largest wall in the room and I can't even make use of it. I have now negotiated a new deal. I'm planning to turn the shelves on the right of the photo at a right angle so they will now cover the first window. I'll be doing the same at the other end where I have the same shelves. The window has three casements and I'm allowed to cover the one at each end leaving the central one free of shelving. This will mean moving my deck, speakers, etc. I'm going to put some decorative window film on the windows that have shelves in front of them- so it looks nice from the outside. That's the plan, anyway. I'm dreading it.

                      ahh, I thought you meant a new window opening in the wall - it sounded a bit crazy like some rogue builder had done it

                        Very nice, although some candles, cake and Danish jazz lps would make it a bit more hygge.

                          rooms now full of other furniture as im on to the next room already.

                          I planned the book shelves to match, so I can eventually get rid of the books and replace with records

                              Houses used to get taxed on how many windows they had - you can still see old Glasgow tenements with bricked up windows. You could maybe suggest to the missus you heard that, post-Brexit, there's a possibility the window tax might return?
