You start drawing equipment in 3D CAD and moving your stuff around to see what is going to fit.

Nobody has a shack that neat!

Actually, one of the ways I deal with occasional insomnia is to rearrange the equipment in my ham shack.  I know where you're coming from.  :)

I'm old school, I draw everything out manually on graph paper.   It kills more of the wait time that way!

Thank you Dave.  It is somewhat of a mess at the moment. Things went down hill when I sold my 7800 "center piece" which never got used and have been working on my Raccoon Engineering patch panel (V3) to replace the old one.

Have also decided to give up my beloved Palstar SP30H speakers in the interest of saving space and replace them with the Bose Companion everyone is using.  

So planned layout is complete and working on the patch panel.
