As a homeowner, I feel lucky to have the basement entirely to myself. I ceded the entire upstairs to my wife and in exchange I've made the basement mine. Our built-in shelving holds my cards. The office is my war room- I write articles and ship orders from in here. The card table is just that - it's covered in cards. I make the Magic happen down here.

If I had kids, I imagine that claiming the basement as mine wouldn't fly. Some Magic parents have run into issues of having space to claim as their own. One Magic Dad decided to repurpose his shed and turn it into a gaming pad. Very cool.


Redditor /u/sponge133 is the architect of this awesome project. Check out the reddit post at this link to reddit or just browse the album on imgur.

Very cool! Anyone else do a Magic DIY project like this? Send me some pix!
