I love secret rooms and would love to do that. There unfortunately just isn't room for that to work out here. The door into the bedroom/office is right there and the whole space would be very cramped. Also unfortunately the best place for a secret room is in my shop. There is a section of the basement that is difficult to comprehend why it's there as it takes some acute spatial awareness to put things together. It'd be the perfect place for a secret room. Most people would just assume that the basement ended. By my shop isn't getting converted into living space any time soon.
That is definitely an impressive work load.
Thats one of the two main differences between a hobbyist and a pro. A pro works a lot more AND they try to put money in the bank account. Us hobbyist just drain the bank account.
