A waste of HW.

Compared to what you have, LFS/BLFS takes very few resources. Just a
/ 12G ( 6G free)
/home 37G (28G free)
/boot 100M (27M free)
/opt 17G (11G free)
/usr/src 46G (17F free)
/mnt/lfs 9G ( 7G free)
and a swap partition.
Of course most of this could be combined into one or perhaps two
partitions, but separating things out is useful for testing multiple builds.
