I am become….

  • Dys … devourer of words
  • Dys … destroyer of walls
  • Dys … Constructor of bookcases

Yes, I’ve said that before in relation to Geeks, but this time I mean it.
I’m rehoming my library.

When we moved into the house four years ago there were technically 4 bedrooms. In reality this was 1 large bedroo , 1 medium bedroom and one teeeny tiny bedroom. plus the room downstairs that opens into the garden and is billed as a bedroom/study. That makes 3.5 bedrooms to my mind.

The library is currently installed in the 0.5 of a room upstairs. If we had a cat, it would have a concussion, the bookshelves are starting to creak under the load.

I have therefore hatched a plot to steal the repsol room for my library, it having an additional 100cm of width. This leaves the small pointless room … well, pointless. I measured, and adams desk won’t fit. As a desk. It sort of fills the room from wall to wall.

Solution : Remove the plasterboard wall betwen middle sized room of Orange and the pokey room. Produce a much larger room at the back of the house. Block up a doorway, redo the lighting. We now have a 3 bedroom house, or will do. Probably move into the bigger room, and install Adams desk at the end. Ok, we lose immediate access to the en-suite, but given that there are two bathrooms upstairs, thats not so big of a problem.
If we ever move we need to put a wall back up and a door back in. Not a problem.

Which means that I have to shift the futon from the Repsol Room, And fill it with bookcases. .i’m thinking Expedit from IKEA cause theyre cubey and will hold gubbins pretty well. Need a new desk that sits over the radiator.
And then carry all the books downstairs. Wheee.
