That is one hell of a setup. Nice mix of games from different eras and clean.

Hey thanks folks! It's been fun putting it all together.

The tinyhouse is an 8' x 20' steel shipping container that's been converted to a living space by a company in villa rica Ga https://www.lamonluther.com/ . It has a 9k btu mini-split heat and A/C system, queen size sealy "black" mattress and pillows and a decent sized bathroom. It's easy to be comfortable in it.

The van IS for sleeping quarters too. Like the tinyhouse, it has flat screen TV with free hulu, amazon videos and netflix. It has a fridge with drinks and snacks included. It also has heat and AC. We charge $20 extra per night if our guests want to use it.
Our home is on the property. 18 x 36 inground salt water pool. It's like a small 3/4 acre "compound" really. Completely fenced with 8' privacy fence. We're pet friendly as well.

The arcade is in it's own building so it can be used 24/7 without disrupting us or the neighbors. I show guests how to turn the games on (flip about 20 breakers in the panel) and then they can use the arcade whenever.

The wood platform on the ceiling is a 1/32 slot car track (replica of Spain's Catalunya circuit) that raises and lowers on cables with the push of a button. It's a lot of fun but since the cars are expensive, wicked fast and they fly off the track (& break) if you're not careful... we decided guests shouldn't be using it. My goal w-a-s to keep the space below it free so I could lower and use the track BUT we kinda ran out of space on the perimeter of the room. I had to start putting games under the track. :-\ Now that the games are in the way of it lowering to waist height, it probably won't get used for a very long time.

That is so cool. I want a track and a train set one day. Actually, I want the room, I have a nice train set.
