I have been wanting a real office for years. Short of renting an apartment (impossible here in Lund) I haven’t found anything that is doable, until now.
I now have an office here: http://temenos.se, located just east of Lund.
It’s a single room at about 8 or so square meters and feels like a really productive space.
I have studied at school for 3 years, and it’s actually worked well. But that’s mostly because I’ve been studying by reading books and doing calculations on paper, not really using a computer. Using a computer in a library can work, but it’s usually not that awesome.
At the office I have my big 27” Cinema display so doing computer work is excellent. There’s also enough space to do paper calculation should I need to, but with the courses I’m taking now there’s not much of that going on.
Basically it’s just a very productive space where I can get a lot of studying done, but on the occasion that I have time and energy over, it’s also an awesome space to get work done.
Enough talk, let’s do some pictures. This is what the space looked like when I arrived.
And this is what I turned it into.
What’s left to do is to fill this space in the picture below. It’s begging for a plant or something like that, but I need a watering-system as well so I don’t have to manually water it myself. Another thing I want is to put some sort of comfy arm chair/recliner/reading-type chair where I can sit and relax in between long sessions of work, to be able to change positions now and then.
Another awesome thing is the internet, I get a private 100mbit line from the best ISP there is (Bahnhof).
