WANTED - Storage Space!
« on: September 04, 2008, 09:46:50 PM »
Does anybody know anybody who has a watertight/proof barn with electrics?
Desparate! We really need to get this Museum set up! Our garage and house are getting, erm, ahh, full!

Thanks Nick! It would be good to actually show all of this lovely kit off properly!
The website (thanks to your code) is doing very well - a lot of good things have been said about it already!
When we actually have the museum, it will act as a very good extension to that! It's ALL good!

One possibility might be to start off with renting a small premises, like a corner shop, and rotate your displays on a regular basis until you have accumulated enough money for a larger place.
Retroman!

Nice one Combat!
Erm, but . . . would be okay but wouldnt really help with our storage problem.
We would need a big storeroom in the back of the shop, thus, we hit the same problem.
We found somewhere recently that 'could' have worked but . . . they wanted almost £2k a month for the lease/rent.
We also thought we had found somewhere but it got sold before I could even enquire!!!!

Another idea comes to mind, but it would be limted to items capable of passing through a hole measuring 28cm by 60cm.

If I board-out the rest of my loft, you could store some items up there. However, my house is about 60 miles away from the place where you're hosting your open day, so I reckon hauling all that stuff would leave you with a big petrol bill. I reckon there's about 15 to 20 square metres of unused floor space up there.
Retroman!

Combat
That is a really cool offer - but like you said . . . cost loads in fuel!
Something will turn up! Hopefully!

post all the stuff to me, and I'll never be in, and then in 3 weeks time, they'll send it back to you, only you won't be in, and then they'll leave a card, and in 3 weeks time you can go and collect it from the Royal Mail, and then you can post it back to me again.

THX! Again, superb idea with two small flaws . . . it would cost a frikkin fortune to do that and most of the stuff is very old and delicate!
