    Mine is in a 12 x 32 room I built attached to the backside of my barn. It's no longer holding up too well after 20 years; barn was built with second-hand lumber and wall is warping on me. I am going to build a new freestanding building (25 x 40 planned) next spring. Current partial layout was built with disassembly in mind.

    I got lucky. When we were having our house built we got the builder to move a couple of doorways different from their standard model and I wound up with one 12' x 12' bedroom that is accessible only from my den. Nothing in it but my layout and a workbench.

    Mine is in my room and takes up a good amount of wall space. It is L-Shaped and the dimensions are 12' x 2.5' x 4'. It is not too big but not too small for me right now. :D :)

    Hah!..Lots of you have houses over your layouts....Mines in the attic.
    I have heat and Air Conditioning. Heat in the summer...AC in the winter......
    Should of modeled a desert area, instead of the Northeast. That way the tempature up there would match the scenery.

    I have it in my garage, which used to be the orginal dwelling on the property. They knocked out 4/5 of the wall facing the road, and now we habe a garage door! :D

    My previous layout back in New Orleans was 12x12 around the walls with a peninsula. Now it's a 3x6 Scenic ridge layout in my 10x10 office here in the house we're leasing in Houston.

    We'll be shopping for a house in December to buy in Jan/Feb and you bit I'll be keeping an out for "train room" to use. :)

    I really would like to do HO scale for my next layout, so if I can't get a decent sized in-house room, the garage will be my next train room.

    It looks like the majority of the Gauge members are building their layouts in the basement.
    That's exactly where my layout is, too.

    (Funny: Everybody here in Europe believes that Americans NEVER have basements below their houses!!! :D:D:D Now here's the prove that the contrary is true! :oops::rolleyes::p)
