I did find that Toys R Us doesn't just sell "box of LEGOs" but elaborate kits. Had to go to an off brand to get "just blocks".

As for putting a work bench against the window, those left side and left rear windows will most likely be my main work stations. Extra ambient light and something besides a dead wall to stare at. Just have to NOT let crap spin off and hit glass. And there is plenty of space for the three tool chests.
You hired an architect? Hell, us guys at BW coulda saved you some dough. Here's my latest venture. Tho, I do admit, it took me three tries before I finally got one to float.

No, I did not hire an architect. I do site and aerial photography for an architecture firm and one of their managers had one of their guys draw up plans for the planning people to make the permit go faster. I used to kill pylons with him at SCCA stuff.

It's for the snake huntin'. See, the snakes get in the trees and then drop off on your roof at night to soak up the heat left over from daylight.
