Office Space....

August 29th, 2007 at 01:09 pm

Hubby has more time at home. New company has thoughtfully provided Hubby with a laptop and a way to access the company from home. So he works a lot more weekends and some evenings from home. I just didn't realize that he needed somewhere to do it. Somewhere safe. After watching the dogs racing around the tv table he was working on and nearly pulling the laptop off by the cords, I realized that he needed a safe and reasonably quiet place to work. I had been planning on redoing DS's old room into a bonafide guest room, but it seemed to be a logical choice for an office. DS has been out of the room for almost double digit years. And, I still have DD's room to leave as a bedroom, especially for little grandyounguns. The colors I picked out would still go for an office. I moved an unused, but terrific desk in there. A table and a lamp. A rocker for comfortable reading. A tray to hold all the stuff that comes out of guy's pockets and off their belts (they don't need to be laughing at women's purse contents). Yesterday, I made my first foray into the remodeling fund for a new light fixture. Something nice and masculine. We'll put it up on Friday. I will probably buy the paint then, too. Once finished, I hope to add bookcases for all the books boxed up. And to refinish the floors where I pulled up all the old carpet. Good thing. I found more mold in the closet carpet. Probably been there from Rita. Sheesh. Dried, but still nasty. Since we didn't have mold on the closet walls and the carpet hadn't been wet when we checked it like some of the other carpet areas were, we didn't think about it. Glad it is out of there now. This weekend, he changed out all the wall sockets that were still for two pronged plugs. He brought home the speakers he had taken to work and now can listen to tunes. I've even told him he could put his stuff up on the walls. All in all, he loves the room and spent a lot of this weekend working away in there. I still need to buy new blinds and to buy an office chair since the one he is using at the desk is too low. I guess I'll need to add cable in there during football and basketball seasons. I may be doing too well....he may never come out. I may never see him again....

    Ah, so he can work from home. Now all he needs is a home office. I think this would bring so much character to the house.
