Where do you work from? Office, kitchen, garage, living room?

by richard-pc 85 replies
Hi there, I wonder where IMs work from.

I'll start the ball rolling and let you know I have a garden office, about 10ft by 8ft - with 2 macs, a PC, a green screen, lots of lights, and about 20 power sockets. Always untidy I'm afraid!

It is 11 steps from my house, and too close. I actually miss the commute to work, or long haul flights on business trips.

What about you?

Richard

  • I used to have an office about ten minutes away. It was great for getting big projects done, but for little stuff I found myself just not bothering.

    I've recently moved and now have a seperate room in my house for the office, but that's not really ideal for me either, I still end up leaving.

    After a certain point, you just have to slap yourself and get to work.

      I work from home, an have a separate room for my office, but it takes a lot of self discipline to not slack off, and understanding from your family to leave you alone!!!!

        One thing I often recommend is creating a seperate work space so you really feel you are "At Work" when you are in that space. You also need an understanding family that appreciates the fact that when you are in that space you are "At Work". However, that being said, family relationships always come first when you work at home and it is very easy to get disconnected if you are not careful.

        I have ran my businesses from home for over 15 years and I am very lucky that I have a loving an supportive family that understands the boundaries of the work space I have created.

        If you are not able to dedicate a spare room to your office then working from a dedicated area like the Garage (converted for comfort) or a bedroom area will suffice. The key here is to have the mindset that when you cross theat threshold into your work area then you are working and getting things done.

          For me it is right smack dab in the middle of the living room. With 4 kids, this is good and this is bad, lol.

          They are usually pretty good about if I'm at the computer they know I'm working and unless it is an emergency not to bother me. But in the same sense, I'm right here so if they do need me for something.

          I'm hoping to soon set up my own 'office' space, but with younger children, I'm not sure about being shut in a room where I can't keep an eye on them.

            I have a dedicated workspace in my home, but during the last few weeks I've found that if I get out for a few hours each day and work in a coffee shop, I am more cheerful and productive.

            My favorites are Romancing the Bean in Burbank, Aroma in North Hollywood, and The Coffee Table in Eagle Rock.

    I have an office in a separate room in my home, the office space has it's own entry way and bathroom. My office hours coincide with my kids school hours. In the morning I take them to school, get my Starbucks and then go go work. When work is done I pick up the kids and go enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

    • Now THAT sounds like an idea. I want to get away from having to leave the house every day for my 50 mile one-way commute to work. However, I want a schedule that will allow me to get a lot of work done (my J-O-B schedule is ever-changing, so that makes it a bit more difficult). I don't want an office that's outside of my home, but I also want a real workspace as well.

    AutoResponse Plus Towers is an office in a local business center.

    It's not far from my house - if a song is playing on the radio as I leave the car park, the same song is often still playing as I roll into my driveway!

    In the morning, I leave the house at the same time as the kids. I like the 'working day' routine and the separation between family life and business.

    I too (sometimes!) miss the business travel - a lot less, though, than I hated it when I HAD to do it!

    I also have an office in the house (where I'm typing this from) but I don't use it for business - it's mainly the kids' games/computer room now!

    Cheers,

    Neil

    I use my bathroom for an office. I just sit right down and do my business.

    I also have a little coffee maker in there so I'm good for the day.

    I find I do great work there and come up with my best ideas.

    The only problem I ever run into while working in the bathroom is when I run out of toilet paper.

      Good gracious

      I'm in my living room, I find if I work in another room, no one ever sees me and hubby forgets I exist. (Unless its a mealtime of course and he wants feeding).

      I can switch off mentally from the telly, (if he has it on)

      If the grandkids are here, I try and spend as much time with them as possible (obviously), but if I do need to work, I've got the conservatory set up for them with toys, kids TV etc, (I'm not sure why, but they would really sooner be in there lol)

      My newly redecorated home office is Zen mist light green with cherry wood furnishings, hardwood floors and "Z" my bamboo plant with 5 stalks (for prosperity, that's what the tag said). Several years ago I purchased a very expensive and wonderfully ergonomic desk chair which is worth the price. From one window I can see and hear birds at the feeder; relaxing. When my door is open, I can see thru the dining room to the pool patio. Since I live in Florida, I also work wireless at the pool to enjoy being outside.
      Having a "work" mindset makes it easier to work from home. I do like the freedom
      of working in casual clothes with my birds on my shoulders. They are wonderful working associates who literally work for peanuts.
      Otherwise my laptop is my "office" to meet with clients which I do at various Panera Bread free wifi sites around the area. Now Starbucks offers wifi with a card, so that expands my "satellite offices".

    I used to spend quite a bit of time working at the home office. But fairly recently it's all changed because I've chosen to be more mobile. So far this year I've worked at the beach, my bedroom, living room, 6 different sports bars, 14 different cafes, grandma's house, mom's house, Starbucks, Seattle's Best Coffee, Coffee Bean, the girlfriend's house, a couple of pubs, and you get the picture.

    I vacation a lot in Mexico so about 2 months out of the year I'm down there goofing off and working.

    Computer was set up in my bedroom, now it's in the 'extra' room. I have the computer desk with the pc, printer/copier/fax, binders, paper, etc against one wall. I have my trophy saddle from a rodeo on a stand in a corner, a big, blue inflatable-dog ball-pit in one corner and a small, purple, fuzzy papasan chair that my cat is currently sleeping in next to my desk. I have a nice view of the horses out the window too. I have to share the space with a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 year old.....

    When we move (hopefully in a few months) I will have a dedicated home office, a view of my horses in a large field with a pond, an island in the middle of it and a thousand acre forest behind that. Been paying the mortgage on it for about 4 years, it's about time I get to benefit from the peacefulness of it, lol.

      Separate room in the house. Two set-ups - one for general work and one for product creation (writing). Side table for watching news and training DVDs.

      A friend is so aware of the "stay out of my office" rule that he got me a sign for over the door. It says:

      Nobody gets in to see the Wizard.
      Not nobody, not no-how!

      When I want to get away from it, I use a different part of the house, with a big fat stuffed chair that's surrounded by plants.

      I'll occasionally go to the local Panera's, if I want to have coffee and connectivity away from the house entirely, or Ponderosa, if I'm working with a notebook (the paper kind).

      Possibly the most important tools in my business are the small notebook and pen I always carry in my shirt pocket. I get my best ideas when I'm off doing something else, and not thinking about business at all.

      Those are the "money shots." Everything else is just execution.

    A Stressless recliner with a built-in adjustable lap top table in my ocean front livingroom/patio with more wireless toys and computer equipment in the office/den a few steps away.

    As soon as some of your business goals are achieved, seriously consider getting yourself a Stressless recliner when you have a little extra money. Ok maybe a lot of extra money or possibly a furniture mortgage Maybe some real estate too...

    I know some of you have neck and shoulder pain while marketing...

      I work from home and the computer is currently in the hallway.

      Want to move it to the living room to get more light in, although problems with the router not reaching the phone line then!

      Sometimes i go to a cafe and work from my laptop although the laptop is quite slow and until I get a new one it does get on my nerves a little having to wait 10 minutes for a webpage to open!

    I work from my Dad's place, i could work from home, but my Mum and step-dad are into the traditional get out and do your day routine, so i have to dart out for a 30 minute drive to my Dad's place and work from there!! It's annoying, but gets me up in the morning ready to work!!

    I converted a room into an office, or I work under the lapa next to the pool.

    I see clients at their offices or in coffee shops, pubs or at my brother's office, whichever is convenient, as I live about 30km out of town.

    No fancy set up, I work on my laptop - I don't like working on desktops anymore.

    Working hours/discipline is not really a problem - I've been working from home the past 18 years, I don't think I can handle a structured office setup anymore.

    Well lets see, I have a room dedicated, to IM, along with exercise equipment.

    I have a wireless system for use in the media room, laptop access.

    I like the idea of separation, a place to live, a place to work, a place to relax, a place to sleep.

    I used to have a terminal setup in the bedroom, but found that I never got any sleep that way.

    I used to have an office in town about 1 minute from the house. To cut the over $1,000/month expense, I created a home office. Now my productivity is cut in half and I see that working from home can be a real drag if not done properly.

    I do my work from the free-for-all Internet computer in our study. My sister uses her own laptop and so does my dad, so it's pretty much mine 24/7!

    I could only work from my office. I get distracted easily. Although the view of the Mediterranean doesn't help; I always want to go fishing.

    I work at a desk in my living room. Sometimes it can be distracting, but I'm really pretty lazy and can't imagine even walking to a garden office when I want to check my email.

    My home office would be in our kitchen. I don't mind though as I can work and watch the kids play in the living room right next to me.

    Someday I wish for an office not at home. Somewhere that I can get away to when I need some peace and quiet.

      My home office is set up in a spare bedroom. I have a desktop computer and a laptop (I use that the most). Wall-to-wall shelves with books and office supplies. Two windows looking out onto trees.

      But my favorite view is my big curly blonde dog sleeping on the floor in a patch of sunlight.
