My indoor layout is 40" off the ground... I think its a good level when sitting on a stool, and working...

Standing I can reach just about every corner...

I built it strong, so if I have to I can crawl on it to work...

I did have it all against one wall, but couldn't reach sections without climbing on it...

so one day I got tired of that, and ran a saw down it and made it loop around the room...
now it has a center access way... only bummer about this is the duck under I now have...
I am going to make that a lift out section very soon...

I also have 2 small sections I can POP out of from under the layout to get to the back corners...
Scenery hides a hole where there is no benchwork in these spots...


Also make sure you can reach all the track and switches... that's the main things you need to be able to get too...

as for the knee factor, I had great knees until last year when I blew my ACL and tore cartlidge playing baseball...

I'm only 37 yrs old...

do yourself a favor and build it raised up..
