A few weeks ago, I tweeted
Thinking about a post for http://wahlog.com : what do I need out of a home office? Any thoughts on what *you* need in a home office? #wah
I received a few responses
@twistedanchor: more whiteboard space, less horizontal space to collect clutter and a way to keep my dog from sleeping in my foot space…
@dhughneil: in MY home office I need toys. I have a football here, for example, that I toss around etc while on conference calls.
@mpaclark: Coffee. Quiet. Internet.
We’re in the process of selling our home, and I’m reevaluating what I’m going to need in my next home office space. I’ll continue to update this post as I determine more requirements in hopes of leaning more about what my true optimal work environment will become.
- Wired network. Cable preferred
- Air conditioning and heat
- At least three duplex electrical outlets
- Space for storage
- Door that closes
- Ceiling fan
- Overhead lighting
- Detached from house
