"Corwin's New Avalon workshop"
 
   >>Isn't one of the basements Corwin's first lab?
>Corwin's workshop is below the basements.

Out of curiosity, was there always an elevator to the defense tunnels in the Hutchins residence? Also, was Corwin over ten when he set up shop down there?

(With most kids, I'd say "no," but with Corwin, I can see him starting that young.)

I think you mean you'd say 'yes'?

There are elevators to the defense tunnels all over the place. You just have to know where to look...

>Also, was Corwin over ten when he set up shop down there?

Probably. Which is not to say he wouldn't have had a workspace of some kind before then, but it was originally on a somewhat smaller scale, and not underground. He wasn't working on full-size mecha or similarly unwieldy projects at that age. (Or if he was, only on paper.)

Really, the underground thing was just a matter of space, not to protect the neighborhood or anything. It's sort of like Willy Wonka's explanation for why his factory has so many subbasements - expanding the aboveground facilities requires expanding the premises or moving to entirely new ones, but you can always go further down. :)

   I'd begin to worry about going sufficiently down in New Avalon, as a sufficiency of 'down' becomes 'out' at some point...

Well... yes, I suppose so, but since the pseudocontinent's lithoplate averages 25 miles in thickness, "out" would happen at roughly the point at which you would reach the Mohorovičić discontinuity on a continent of a typical tectonically active terrestrial planet. This is... not really a matter of practical concern, particularly as you wouldn't actually get out, you'd just hit neutronium* and, presumably, have to stop digging. :)

   If -anyone- is going to go full Moria when excavating subbasements, I'd expect it to be Corwin ;-P

   I figure by the time's he's thirty, he'll have claimed a quarter of the underground space for his workshop and the rest by the time he's a grandfather....:)

No, he'll just have to carry a small digital assistant to keep track of everything, and install windows in various places to make it work.

Windows? Corwin always struck me as a Linux user.

Yes, I know that's not what you meant, but it's where my thought process went immediately upon reading it.
