Wargames Eyrie - progress

I have now tidied up the mess I made knocking 3 walls down. I am now waiting to find out how much plaster I need to knock off the walls in the hall way. In the mean time I can strip out old light fittings. The main focus will be the bathroom, because you don't want to walk far when your in a critical moment of a game and you gotta go, plus we need a more modern bathroom to survive. Gosh I miss a shower. Don't worry we still we still have washing facilities and critically a bath. We haven't moved and not washed for months!

The vision so far is that where the ceiling changes height I'd like to fit a display cabinet across the step in the ceiling. This could be supported by 2 display cases on either side of the hallway forming  a display like an upside down U.

Beyond the display case will be a desk or 2. This section will have the door covered up and will house the painting desk.

This section will have the door covered up and either a second desk or a storage for the lead/plastic mountain or both.

The view when I look up to relax the eyes from squinting trying  to paint buttons or buckles wishing the zip had been invented in the bronze age

The view towards the bathroom from my paint station

Inside the bathroom. The door in the left will be blocked up

A hole. Depending on how big a tank I'll need this is the preferred side for the toilet and sink.

The preferred corner for the tank

L to R will hopefully be a tank, towel rail and shower.

What's in the hole?

A view of the partially covered up window in the 1st floor toilet from the 2nd floor bathroom

An old slate tank. This is big and needs a bit of thought to get out. 

The mess is travelling to new floors!
