How do you store it?
She has 7000 pieces that are not part of a set, then she has 3 vehicles from the City set, the Stables from the Belleview (?) set, and is getting the Hogwarts Express and Hogwarts Castle in a few weeks, possibly Whomping Willow.
Do you keep each set in different containers? She has put the stable set in the big container with all the other pieces. But the vehicles are in those plastic take-away containers. I'd like to keep all the Harry Potter ones in their own container. But not sure if I want each individual set in its own container or just get one larger container for all of it.

We have a 'Lego room' which is just a spare bedroom with Lego all over the floor it's good because they can go in there and shut the door away from DD. have you have a look at the website ikea hackers? They have a few ideas for Lego storage. I like the one with the table top (plywood) on top of 2 of those trofast systems. There is also a blog where she bought the same storage units and sorted the Lego by colour it worked well as her children where older around your DDs age.

This is the one I like, I think it would be good to store individual sets in glad snap bags and maybe sort the rest into colours? http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/05/t...lay-table.html

I have two clip top containers with all the Lego in there.
When my brother was younger, his Lego was kept in a massive queen size flat sheet. Was awesome cos when he wanted to play with it, you just undo the string and spread the sheet out and the Lego is then in the middle of the open sheet.
The rule was that the Lego had to stay on the sheet. Made it so easy to clean up.

I want to build a big room/granny flat lol, have it all set up and left set up. Well, all the actual sets anyway, then be creative with the loose ones.

We have one of those lego Storage heads and then a tub. They're all mixed up. She gets the sets but then she likes to be creative with all of it and mix and match. She doesn't really mind if the sets are made exactly like the picture so I don't worry about keeping them separate.
We got a wooden kids table especially made for one of her birthday's...then I painted it for her. It has 4 chairs but it's big enough that you could fit 6 chairs around it. It's the lego/art/craft/jigsaw puzzle table.
It's very hard with a 2 year old who also likes to play with Lego!
