After a few too many years struggling in the roof space I have finally admitted that there simply isn't enough height. A friend of mine who is a professional builder is half way through building a big insulated shed for my next layout. The layout will be built on insulation board as I have plenty spare after some building work done a few years back. The layout design is still at the early stages as I struggle to truly imagine anything in a space that as yet doesn't exist! My early thoughts are to loosely base the layout on a design by Cyril Freezer from his "Model Railway design manual" (which really is a great book for all levels of modeller). I am thinking about adapting layout number 13 (Pg 144) by adding a medium sized steam depot and a continuous run as sometimes its nice to just watch!
Anyway, my question!
What do people use for storage below their baseboards? I like the thought of shelving and drawer units that are the right height for the layout to be built on top of and are also not too expensive. Any thoughts?
