    That's been my dilemma. We are looking for a house and at this point I'm resigned to the fact that I won't be able to have a perfect room size. So now I'm trying to determine what I can live with lol. I'm starting to think that the width of the room might be more important than length for practice purposes.

    Ah I feel you man, my advice is to sacrifice a single side like I did. Its important to have the bulk colour short rail free to practice good safety as well as the black cushion short rail. As long as you have 1 long rail completely unhampered then you can practice line ups and such freely atleast from 1 side. But the idea is to isolate the problem to a single side rather than have it occurring in multiple areas which will get really annoying when trying to break build (trust me been there)

    I did not count but I think you only had two shots on the green side of the black
    Cheers man. Yea I actually prefer the reds closer together and under the blue because I usually only play for the blacks and pinks / practice 147s. For the other colours I normally just spread the reds around and cherry pick shots to practice. Haha yea I rarely shoot from the green side....despite the lack of practice I'm normally okay from that side anyway

    Unfortunately most of the places in the suburbs don't have much of a backyard. So it would have to be a shed that takes up the majority of the backyard. But I have considered it for sure, I'd love to have a space to play without sacrificing an entertainment room in the basement.

    Oma, that's an interesting perspective I hadn't thought about sacrificing one of the sides. My initial thought was sacrificing the black cushion a bit since any time I'm shooting straight down table with the cue ball stuck to the black cushion it's a safety. As long as I can cue comfortably to play reds into the side from below the pink I should be ok.

    Or *gasp* I may have to get a pool table.

    Well there is a lot of unused space in this country . Real estate is sadly getting more expensive every year though.
