I have had to improvise on my scrap area. My daughter has decided to go back to school full time so her and my two beautiful grand-babies have moved in with us so that I can help her take care of the kids. Our hallway is pretty wide and has a built in computer area. It is just off the living room. I do have two problems though in the summer it gets really hot and stuffy since there are no vents or windows and it is also a high traffic area. But all and all I am happy with it.
