I thought I'd have a bash with Google SketchUp.

Because I am planning a few changes to my bedroom.


If only it was so easy to empty a room in real life.


I am thinking of something like this but in dark walnut.

So I set to drawing it in SketchUp...
Never used it before but it's extremely easy to use.


Knocked this up last night...
If I could only brick up those windows I could fit so much more in.

I will start thinking about bookcases and wardrobes tonight.

You could put demountable plasterboard panels partly or entirely over the windows.

Or have cupboards/shelving units over the windows, mounted on hefty hinges, so they can be swung away like very deep shutters if you ever decide to have a look at that pesky daylight stuff...

Yes I was thinking of having some sort of hinged shelving, in at least on window... Mustn't hinder escape in case of fire though. I can see the headlines "MAN TRAPPED BEHIND BOOKS IN FIRE HORROR".

Yeah, right! You are going to open the hinged shutter/shelving, when its fully loaded with stuff, while all around you smoulders, and then squeeze through a window! Is that with or without a dodgy back! A fire extinguisher might be a better option. Besides, are YOU going to leave any book to burn??? You, the lover of libraries, would don a firemans outfit and rescue the whimpering pamphlets so that future genrations can look in wonder upon them.
I think I might be taking the micheal a little here, but its easy to take advantage of a man when he's 5000 miles away! (Phantom Raspberry sound echoes through the room!)

If you don't need the light from the windows you can easily make up a wooden frame and board them up from the inside. I believe this is a good way to disguise a dungeon if someone was using their spare room as a playroom. It also acts as a sound break if the dungeon was to be used with noisy people. Not that I would know anything about this weird aspect of life, I believe you would need to talk to someone who has been to places like "Skin Two", "Torture Garden", "Maitresse" "Der Putsch" and....oh! That would be me then!!! :)

I have no idea what you're on about. But I did think about pinching your idea for window insets.

So where is the lathe, milling machine and pillar drill going?

I'm coming to that... I guess I have to model them in 3d too?

But of course! AND fully animated too!!!
Mind you, if you really want to impress me, then do it in the suggested 22 different dimensions (not up totally on my physics here - may be more now). Actually, thinking about it, if you were to construct it in the fourth dimension, that would mean that you could have already built it and are revisiting it to modify it and ....I think I have just lost myself in the time/space continueum thingy. Stick to 3D!
