Here's an area I've been eyeing as a possible permanent layout location. The diagram shows the facing wall of the area - I can come out maybe 40" from it. The sofa and shelves can maybe be moved, but the file cabinet will probably have to stay, and the window obviously cannot be moved (duh). Also I don't think I can get away with covering the window with a backdrop. Here's the problems: 1. Is the full 125" usable or does the window limit me to using only 77"? If I use the full 125", the window limits me to a height of 44". If you assume a backdrop height of, say 8", that makes the layout at a height of 36", which would be just about 6" or so below eye level (while sitting down, of course.) 2. And what is a reasonable height for a backdrop, anyhow? 3. If I can't take the sofa out of the picture, I'd have to build over it. This would pretty much limit me to the 77" length, right? And I would have to come up with some way to build a 30-36" deep shelf with out any support under it. I've seen "shelving systems" at Menard's, etc., that might work but 24" seems to be the deepest they go. I guess one could rig up some way of extending them. Anyone have any experience/ideas/brainstorms in this area?
