Home Office: Post 3: 50% Done

Posted by Heather Villa, CMA, MBA, MSM on September 13, 2009 in: Just Blogging

It has been awhile and I have been a bit sick with the flu, but I wanted to update my readers on my home office (post 1 here and post 2 here). We are about 50% completed.

The new AC has been installed.

The new desk has been installed.

The two 24″ monitors were swapped out for two 27″ monitors (and a beefier video card and power supply to boot – thanks @dszp).

The curtains were installed.

Still pending:

3rd 27″ monitor (my colleague Scott is calling this my Space Shuttle Pilot Cabin)

The ‘back up of my back up’ solution (which is still undecided).

New Chair (mine is 6 years old)

What I am going to do with the South East Corner which currently has the ‘utility shelf’ – I am thinking of a built in corner bookshelf w/ a little sitting bench or something similar.

As usual check out the picture feed below.

However, I wanted to take a minute to tell you all – that this new office (apart from the files of work that I have loaded on my desk due to being sick) has made me feel more productive.

Going to work in the office, no longer seems like a chore, my office has become my sanctuary in a way. I am being more productive, more organized and have space to expand and stretch (even with a file mess) without feeling cluttered.

I know many of my clients (and readers) work from home, and many of you have children (and I am currently raising my niece, so I now know how it feels), but investing in your own area – your own working space that the door can be shut and you have everything you need (remember my office was a second master bedroom, I have a bathroom and a mini-fridge in the office) can enable you to shut the door and shut out the distractions.

Just an idea!
