With our recent basement project finished I finally have a writing space I can call my own. The space I used before also doubled as the kids playroom as well as the central dumping ground for things we didn’t know what to do with. It was cluttered and frantic at the best of times. Even when the kids were asleep there was too much visual noise including recent preschool art projects on my desk and toys underfoot. Now the kids have their own space and I have mine.
Before the big move I spent hours trying to figure out what layout would work best for the space using Google Sketchup. Funny thing is that imagining spaces on a screen and being able to move things around in a room are two very different things. The room must accommodate three workstations and a collection of bookshelves. In the 3D modeling we tried many different arrangements but could never get a good feel for the flow of the space. In the end we did it the old fashioned way, shifting furniture around the space until we found a good fit.
I love how it turned out, here are some pics:
Now I have no excuse to put off getting some good chair time in!
Happy Writing Everyone!
