It's very likely that I'll be moving from Illinois to San Diego area sometime next year, to the land of houses with no attic/basement/storage. Having room for a layout in something bigger than a small bedroom is a priority for me as this may be our last home and I want to be able to enjoy my hobby especially after retirement. Once thought is to build a layout in the garage since there is low humidity and no freezing temperatures. Another thought is possibly going to suburbs with larger lots and building a man shed or separate garage. I'd like hear what you guys have done.
