Hey Josh... I'm on dial-up tonight so I didn't get to see everything, but my first impression is "YESSSSSS, I love it!" Your plan is certainly "aggressive" for your bedroom, but I like that. I am looking forward to your progress. Questions and comments: 1. At what height are you building the benchwork? If you made it pretty tall, you could use the area under the layout for storage, bookshelves, maybe even your TV could go underneath, possibly even a desk for doing homework and stuff. 2. If it is fairly high above the floor, you could put the layout over your bed too. Nothing too wide, maybe a 12 inch shelf for staging? 3. How tall is your dresser? If the layout was a touch taller than the dresser, you could increase the width there, out to the front of the dresser. 4. Any reach problems in the upper left hand corner? 5. I am a bit concerned about the peninsula. There is no doubt that it dominates your room. Will you have space to change clothes and such? If it were me, I might consider deleting it. 6. Are you going to build the benchwork using shelf brackets (either store bought or home-made) or are you going with conventional benchwork with legs and such? It seems to me your layout will be perfect for using a shelf type system so the area underneath is clear for you to use for other things as mentioned above (except the peninsula). Like I mentioned, this is a very aggressive plan, and I LOVE it! It's great seeing someone with a "go for it" attitude.
