If you’re reading this, chances are you like to snap bricks together. Where to to do our building is as much a challenge in smaller spaces as storage.


Chances are you will not have a dedicated build area in a small living space. Since many of us don’t have a dining table, folding tables and chairs provide the most flexible and inexpensive surface for building. When not in use they can be easily stored away.

Home Depot and Lowe’s have a selection of folding tables at reasonable prices.

IKEA has compact and low priced folding chair options, some under $10.

Temporary storage

Temporary storage and building storage can be done with a wide variety of inexpensive items.

Mushroom bins or deli cups let you keep different parts separate while building.

Banker box lids can help when building larger sets or MOCs on a table that might need to be cleared for dinner or other activity. The lids are easily stacked in the corner until you’re ready to pick it up again.
