The office refit – no longer just a man cave
Posted on 27 May ’11 by Earl Moore
Several weeks ago I mentioned in “Refiting the man cave” we were in the process of remodeling my office but were waiting for furniture to be delivered. For the most part it’s now finished although I need to do some wire management and build a drop down work surface in the closet storage area.
The room is a converted bedroom. Our concept was for it to have three functional areas. One a modern computer/photography area with lots of desktop and storage space, a reading and media viewing area with a warm contemporary feel and a storage work area created from a converted double doored closet. This design is a fusion of modern and contemporary with details added by both Bonnie and myself.
For those who expressed an interest, here’s photos of where I process the images you see on Meandering Passage and this is where I write these rambling posts.
Photo 1 & 2: Computer workspace with the wide L-shaped desk and linear storage unit. There’s also a gallery rail photo hanging system to easily display some of my work.
Photo 3: You see the merging of the computer workspace and the reading/media space. There’s also a rack near the door that holds networking components, a Drobo Pro Backup device, a UPS, and a laser printer.
Photo 4 & 5: The reading and media area — the chair belonged to my parents and is one of the most comfortable sitting chairs ever.
Photo 6: This displays the closet converted to a storage unit. I plan on building a drop down work surface between the two bookshelves to be used for photo framing or computer repairs.
I don’t have a good photo of this space before the “flip” but let’s just say it was dark maroon, unorganized and very depressing.
Have a great weekend everyone!
