Cozy, thanks to nice insulation.  Models in the foreground look cool and add inspiration.  Got a radio or snack bar somewhere?  They are essential to keep the brain cells active!

I just need to find a small microwave and tiny bar fridge, then I could practically live down there.

Massive insulation there Curt, it must be very cosy.

My house is as old as I am, got exterior insulation a few years ago, it's great.

In our tropical climate the pink "pillows" are a must. The cave is looking good Curtis

Totally.
Ironically, late fall and early spring are the worst for being in the basement. The out side temp goes up, the furnace gets turned down which then make it harder to drive the dampness out of the basement. It's even harder that the floor only has area rugs down.

I am going to install a little space heater to aleiveiate that.

Small air conditioner Curt?

If you have an exterior wall or window down there, you could stick in a "through the wall" type unit that would be integral/plug in, without pipework for a seperate condensing unit.

I never sold them here, but I assume they are heatpumps these days, not just cooling only.

Good suggestion Shay, but what I really need is a dehumidifier. Which I am looking to get soon, our summers are crazy humid. It will be useful for painting and casting.

A/C dries the air Curt, so you get heating, cooling and dehumidification all at the same time. Well, not all at the same time....lol

Only downside to dehumidifier is the fan noise.  It tends to reduce concentration and the electric billsgo up.  a large heating pad on high under the chair can be nice.

I'll be using the dehumidifier for painting and casting purposes not for my sore old ass. Lol, you can get some pretty quiet units so the fan noise shouldn't be an issue for me.
But the heating pad does sound like a great idea for those extra damp days, thanks for the idea.

Thanks Max.
Ya man having that wash tub right there sure makes building soooo much easier.

Next addition will be a better exhaust system for the spray booth.

I have two 8" super strong computer/server cabinet fans pushing air through a poorly designed exhaust box. I need some actual heating ducting and a better filter system, or in my case a filter system.

Hey Curt: I found a microwave at a thrift store for fifteen bucks that works great. Got a small bar refrigerator at Wal-Mart for cheap. I do live in the cave. SWMBO refers to me as the troll who lives in the basement.

Sounds like a great set up John.,

My wife just thinks I am a total geek, has absolute no concept of a hobby.

She's a bit of a workaholic and a TV junkie.

When she gives me the gears about buying kits I just tell her I am spend the money you would if you had any hobbies or interests out side of your work.

I am pretty lucky, she is actually really cool (most of the time) about all the crap I buy for this hobby.

Between this hobby and all our bike stuff I need a full time job just to support my spending.

Nice place to relax Curt....hopefully mine will be something like that again. Still working on it since the burglars and the tornado hit here...then I have to find what is needed for the ones I have left so I can restore the old ones.

Thanks boys.

Looking to expand it over the next 12 months to double it's current size and be able to have the complete stash on open shelves for my viewing pleasure.

Good luck Mark with your rebuild.
