NOTE: I do not think you can have a raised floor using conventional hardware that is *free standing* - I think it relies on the walls for support/rigidity.

FOr example, if you take a complete run of floor tiles out of a raised floor, the whole floor can come crashing down.

Not good.

Rasied floor is frail, if not installed/maintained/used properly.

Just a note, you may have already thought about that, but you can't just build up a raised floor in a large room...

Heh, our garage is already scoped out for a LEGO room.  I do have
a 10x10' space reserved in the basement for the raised floor computer
It's just a matter of building it out.  We have 10' clearance in our
Does anyone know if they make raised floor stands that are less than the
12-18" ?  I would think that 8" would be enough.
