Well it’s almost been 3 years and finally I have finished the home office and can do a grand reveal (well, with the exception of the floor… but we’re all friends here!)
As many of you will know, I run my own company alongside my blog… so there is plenty of working from home going on. I was crying out for a little bit of a HQ for all my bits and pieces that come with the job and just to have somewhere to put all the paperwork that we all get too. We had an office in our last house, but it was effectively in the basement and so had no windows. It was a great space, but rather depressing to spend time in. I feel rather spoiled now, as although it’s only a small space, I have not one but two windows. Which makes it a fantastically bright and airy room. So it’s a joy to spend time in here.
It is located just off of our kitchen/family room, as it is the original pantry. If you didn’t already know, we stay in a converted 18th century farmhouse, hence the rather deep window sills and very odd height and sizing of the windows. This is ideal, as it means that we aren’t sacrificing a bedroom and being just off the kitchen means I have excellent access for making cups of coffee. It’s also handy for if I need to send a quick email in the evening, as I don’t feel like I’m leaving the family area.
I have done a video tour of the room, if you would like to watch that….You can see ‘behind the scenes’. You can also see the size and layout of the room a bit better in a video. Photo’s can be rather deceptive when it comes to getting a feel for the space.
I have to say a massive thanks to my fantastic husband, who have slaved over this one in the evenings and weekends, even whilst I was effectively bedridden with my back. It may have taken over a year to come together, but in that time it has been used as a store for the kitchen renovation, so we’ll allow that.
