The streets and floors seem like they could warp if they're not stacked neatly. And I feel like the posts need to be treated carefully, too. If they have problems, the whole set will be largely useless. I also want to make sure the paint doesn't wear off -- it's tough to tell, but it seems like it could be vulnerable, especially on some of the wood floors. Some of my pieces seemed sticky when I unpacked them -- I seem to recall a similar issue with KS2, though, and those have aged well.
Time will tell, I suppose.
1-I put the posts in regular tool part cases. Works grand. I have one where pulling one divider makes a space exactly two horizontal posts + 1 Vertical post long - 40 posts altogether.
2-I wonder about the streets too. I've stowed my Imp St either lying flat or on edge, but the on edge has ME on edge...
3-I store the wooden floors flat, as the bottom of large drawers holding the original boxes of other Tudor or Stone parts. I alternate one floor with the original plastic envelope and one without, so all are protected but I only have half the hassle.

I've said this for a long time.

I store my stuff in elaborate drawer systems b/c I rarely move it. When I took both Offsprings' DF groups to Wisconsin for three days of camping/playing on Halloween, I took the bins.....but I do that once in a blue moon.

The bins mean I can grab and build really fast; the bins are on one side of the aisle, Fly Board #1 on the other, so I can open the bins, grab, build really fast.

It turns out that Kickstarter 4 will be a full- scale castle made of Dwarvenite, with built-in Dwaevenite storage to store your other Dwaevenite...

I have 2 Alex Units from IKEA. They just filled up and I need to pick up a third. Pretty sure that will be adequate for the remaining minis' and sewers and streets, and then all of KS4.

Love love love my Alex Units

I have most of my Dwarven Forge pieces in plastic tubs like these. Up to three for KSIII already, and I haven't even stored my sewers:

I wish I had room for drawer units that would make everything more accessible, but these do the job at least.

I'm not because I'm afraid they will warp with storage and I'll eventually have posts that come out at odd angles. Dunno if this would actually happen or not...
