Damn that looks good, definitely something that I would do if I had the money.

There's no access to the garden other than through the house, doors and windows are all locked and separately deadbolted from inside and main door has 4 point locks. Garden has security lighting so its ok. Wife wants to stick CCTV up at some point so when we do that I'll have an extra camera on the back anyway.

Dependent on the number and quality of cabs I can stick in there between now and the summer I'll be doing an Essex mini meet BBQ, at some point next year. Will post details if and when here and over on Jamma+
Was the £7K you quoted due to size? I think it's a great size for a Games Room.

Also, at this mini meet BBQ, are there likely to be any pole/lap dancers?? Any excuse to say "shake it baby"

So this thing is completely weather proof right? No worries about leaks and damp ruining everything?

That looks brilliant, FT. I'm looking forward to seeing how you fill it up! 8)

Did you have to do any prep work to the ground before the installation?

Yeah laid a 600 square foot hardstanding. Cabin this size really needs a solid base and because its going to have lots of weight on the floor (arcade machines, slate bed pool table) will keep everything nice and level.

In other news, laid a laminate floor in there yesterday and I'm utterly broken. 11 hours crouched in the cold has destroyed my knees.

Yes, all the timbers interlock and walls, floor and roof are fully resin sealed. Draught and leak proof.

About 90% done now. Just artwork, lighting and shelving to go.
Hopefully pics will work, posting from my phone.

Sweet set up, FT. Ol' Boney sure wants to beat your high score in the first pic.

:). The eagle eyed will spot the middle cab has a pair of LS-30's and is running a dedicated Midnight Resistance PCB. Not ideal but will do until I can get them a home in a Xenon or Goliath where they belong.

Superb stuff! Midnight Resistance is something I would love to play in arcade form again.

Is it possible to hide the wires from the lighted signs?

Yeah, they'll be tucked along the roof line. Still got UV lighting and stuff to install and managed to bag some proper arcade carpet from an arcade that shut down in Bournemouth that I'll need to fit at some point. Problem is its all usable now. :)
Got a dedicated emulation PC hooked up to the TV and have now installed a decent sound system since I took the pics.
Can't wait for summer to get here (if we get one this year).
