How will you keep it hidden from the outside world? What security protocols will it have? What will you do in terms of safety? What will the overall layout be? How will the space be organized? What features will it have in the living area? Maybe an arcade? A pool table? A basketball court? A giant aquarium? A movie theater? A music room?What will the workspace be like?
