I cant be sure the new desk will even be built - it depends largely on my parents. I made the rendering to get their support, but if they are not confident in my construction skills, they might insist on something pre-built. (Ie, overpriced and poorly made)

I have a midget desk, its 6 feet long, with 3 monitors (2 LCD's (17" and 19") and a CRT 19") and 3 rigs, my dell (linux box) my regular rig. and my station to repair PC's.Plus my desk is falling apart, the right wside of my desk is sagging, im affraid that if i put anything heavy on it. (Ie my Laser printer, 30 pounds) and my inkjet photo one (10 pounds) i have NO room whatso ever. My printer is shoved behind my monitors, the paper tray is sticking out under the monitors. Ill post pictures as soon as i find the damn camera in this mess. you guys get to see my gangsta rig (in the middle of a mod)

*bump*

Just posting an update - the work has begun! The room is now half-emptied. The old desk is gone, just kept the end pieces as potentially reusable for the new desk. Wallpaper is being removed, schemetics for the new wireing drawn up, lighting planned... The computer is temporially moved to the front room, much to the annoyance of the family.

Schedule is also worked out:
1. Strip wallpaper. Remove rest of the clutter, except wardrobe which wont fit through door. Empty wardrobe.
2. Get paint, coving.
3. Remove carpet.
4. Clean walls. Paint walls. Put up coving. Paint ceiling.
5. Put down new flooring.
6. Start on the desk-building.

So, its still a long way off. But its also getting more ambitious, with plans to include lighting so I wont be working in my own shadow. And concealed under-desk controls.
