in order to get another impression of what it means to build a machine room, have a look
at Bernd Ulmann's website: www.vaxman.de
In the menum, click on museum, then on machine room (it's a link within the text).
He writes alot about all the problems he got confrontated with while building and renovating
his machine room. It's very interesting!
