6ish months after the office was finished - finally the joinery has arrived!

Small issue with the under-cabinet task lighting - but being sorted.

Should be back later in the week (being that it is a small office and they have to work outside, we're slightly weather-dependent - hoping the snow doesn't appear (our postmaster says a foot's coming and he's valley-born so might be onto something).







Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

I'm liking Marcus' interior setup. That's the real deal!

I think OD's setup is functional but well thought out. I see the GB sticker has gone from the fridge, so guessing Brexit has stopped future trips across the channel for the fridge!

I've got a geezer coming by tomorrow to discuss the final details of a garden office that is currently scheduled for installation early Feb.

Yep, the fridge's globe trotting days are over, not that they ever started  :'(

Looking forward to seeing your garden office take shape  :thumbsup:

I've spent the majority of my life living in Essex, only relatively recently moving across the border. Lost the strong accent I had as a youth.

I've gone all in - whilst business is still good, construction is working even slower than normal, so cash-flow hasn't been as good as it might be. But I'm only doing this once, so might as well get it right even though there's been a couple of bum-clenchy months and my office builder did me a very solid favour on the time for final invoice payment.

Only mistake I've made so far is that thermostat on the wall - that was originally going to be concealed within a piece of joinery and then a remote air sensor mounted discretely.  Once I got a better feel for the space, I made a lot of changes to my joinery layout and now I have to see the stat to remind me of my failings as someone who spends their life making tech invisible.....

Look forward to seeing plans etc. - enjoy the process - it's been a lot of fun so far, along with a bit of frustration of course.
Right! What's next?

I'd love to say 'no, it's how you use it', but I probably fail miserably on that score so, yes, guilty as charged!

Good grief, no!

I do music for fun, and some voice acting stuff for pocket money.

Short: Tim, come on, please get those speakers up to ear height.

Long: Because high frequency sounds travel in a straight line, like a laser if that helps, from the tweeters. Low frequencies expand out in all directions, like a bomb I suppose. If you can get the tweeters up to ear level and pointing in so that they are aiming just behind your head, your ears should be in the line of fire which meas that you may not want the volume as loud as now, and the sound will be more accurate, although if you have got used to the current sound, a more accurate sound may take some adjusting to. Do at least try it, please.

That picture was taken about 30 minutes after the speakers arrived! I'm looking for some good supports for them, bearing in mind that the desktop is at 93cm, so not a conventional desk height.

More plywood porn.

Sockets to sort out over the weekend (awaiting Jordan Bronze finish - so white plastic for the moment), some paint retouching etc. and then I can move up there!







Right! What's next?

I should be getting a sketch-up view of my new setup soon, but I'll be going for a more minimalist style ... Marcus certainly has my vote for best integrated setup, even before it is complete.

BTW did any East Anglians see me fleetingly on Look East yesterday evening?  They’d asked for people to send in photos of themselves working from home so I was happy to oblige  ;D
