    Default Storing 1200+ Video games in a 600 square foot studio loft

    Pictures to come soon! I just bought a 600 square foot STUDIO loft (one room) and I have been storing 1200+ games in a friend's basement for a while now.

    I had resigned myself to never having many of my beloved games with me, as many are boxed and take up a great deal of room... 150 domestic Saturn games, over 100 N64 games, over 100 Genny, SNES, 32x, and SMS games... a whole lot of boxes.

    I want a neat place, not some testament to my geekiness and obsessive collecting gene.

    Any ideas on what to do?

    Oh, and by the way... I'm probably going to clear out my entire 3DO collection as it just takes up too much space and I never play it anyway, so here's the package if someone wants to make me an offer...

    I also live in a small space with a child and two dogs and feel your pain. We have about 900 sf currently but have access to a basement. If you want to maximize you storage and livability I would consider hiring or befriending an architect. In my experience, I have really helped people to find and allocate space efficiently and humanly. The key is to find the right one who is able to work in your budget and lifestyle parameters. This can be quite a challenge. Barring that I would check out the books in the “Not so big House” series by Sarah Susanka. Although not for all tastes she does a great job giving you ideas for obtaining a livable environment in a space efficient manner. For a great look at the possibilities of small space living you should also check out “Tokyo: A Certain Style.” It demonstrates the design possibilities inherent in large collections. Lastly I would say Ikea can be your friend. They do an excellent job with low cost modular storage solutions.

    I have no idea what this stuff is worth, but I'm always willing to play new games. Anyone want to clue me in on a fair offer for the lot?
