Hey bruno did you ever think about the fact that all the things you take upstairs have to come down someday??? Or are planning to put the gameroom V3 on top of your house, let's say expanding the attic... lol.  Wink

Yes Jomm, I know  oppps Each time I'm putting some parts in the Attic, I know I'm adding more work for l8ter, but I really need to have all the G parts at the same location : my house  Tongue Grin

Well, some items won't go into the attic... that first pcb box (or stack ?) by example  arrow



...and other HUGE pieces too  Shocked  arrow



This is my 'workshop' room, where I've done most of the last renovations (Pac Man, Space Ace, Donkey Kong, Galaga by exemple)...

If I can't play Galaxian for the moment, at least I can see everyday some parts of it  Tongue It helps me to keep the motivation for this 'Lifetime' project  Roll Eyes Cool Wink Grin

   I've just found some video footage done during the first day of that crazy adventure. I know it's not the best film ever done with a cam' (very dark & blurry  oppps), but I just want to share it with all the Galaxian≥  fans here.

Check this out  arrow

Man-o-man, I have SO much respect for you and your helpers ! I'm already getting tired of just_looking_ at the pictures Wink

Bruno, doesn't your house have wooden floors ? Will it be able to support all that weight you put up there ?

Keep up the good work !!

Hey Bruno,

As always, I love reading your road trip stories - mostly because they're damn funny.

You have some great friends, and a most understanding wife - mine would not be this cool.  Grin

I've especially loved the two game room videos and progress stories, as well as your restorations.

I have just one question about the C3 theatre though - where are you going to put it eventually?

It is absolutely huge!!

Anyway, thanks for sharing, the stories and pics are just great!

Hi Steve,

I'll start the construction of new game room (more an extension in fact), behind the existing one, and the name will be of course : Nuno V  Wink

So Stay Tuned   Wink (...but I can take some time  roll eyes ...)
