Used to be a garage long time ago (new house, we move in in april) but the previous owners added heat to this room, and built a 2 car garage.
I had to put the ceiling, walls, etc... in, and build a subfloor on sloped concrete (joy).

Just about done now, just need to re-arrange and tidy up, but that's an ongoing project for everyone, so I figured I would at least get some pics up and go from there since I haven't updated my pics in 1-2 years, heh. Lemme know what you think!!

I HAVE to add a disclaimer in there.
That TV is a placeholder.
I have a 47" widescreen HDTV upstairs for my modern games, and am getting a 27" TV to go where that one is downstairs with fron A/V jacks.

Cool room. I've got the same thing going in my super small bedroom at home. Maybe someday after college...

Pretty sweet room. Did you build all the shelving yourself?

They don't make system selectors for that many systems. I think the maximum is eight :P

You can just have two running together like a daisy chain with monster cables.

If there was a fire and you lost everything, what would you do?

If it was me, I'd just kinda.. sit down for a few weeks and just.. cry.

Or you could build your own, if you have the required skills.

I'm wondering why you would turn your garage into a game room......

I'd either A. use the basement or B. suffer without personally.

Because I have a 2 car garage, the previous owners started to convert this old garage into a room, but stopped after putting in the heater and ceiling.

Rich? HAH! A 4 person family making 60K a year is FAR from rich. FAR FAR FAR away.

Yes, I built the shelves :)

Thanx for the feedback guys! I'm just so happy to finally have my game room setup!

Looking at your game room, I can't help but wonder why you don't have piles of money in the bank. :-k

Very nice, and yes, I'm jealous, but only a little.

Are you serious? With all those free things your getting with rebates I'd assume you basically got your new room handed to you!

Exactly what I was thinking... for the price of a few games in that collection he coulda bought at least a decent 32 inch.

Nice,

I plan on doing this eventually also. I am in the process of finishing my basement bath and entertainment room.

Once thats done my upstairs spare bedroom will become my game room even more than it is now..
