Home Office v0.9

My home office. 27" 5K screens on top of 96" long Mayline desk.This is my first “room” update for our new house. In the past three months we have made a lot of progress on settling in, so to speak.

My home office is the last room we’ve completed, but I’m going to start with it. One reason for that is the fact that I didn’t actually have a chance to have a separate office for a while now.

Closeup of the work space.As the kids arrived we freed up my previous office and turned it into a bedroom for kids. So my workspace lived in a corner of our living room for many years.

I’ll probably make a separate post on the technology part itself in more details later, but in short — the center-piece is a pair of 27″ 5K monitors powered by 2018 MacBook Pro.

A slightly earlier shot, but it depicts the actual color of the furniture better than the shots above.There is a another screen on the desk that is connected to my old Windows 7 PC, but it is a temporary thing that is assisting me in my full migration to macOS.

Monitors are placed on a pair of single monitor arms from UPLIFT. I went through a number of configurations before stopping on this one.

View from the door.The goal was to have better controls of the monitors by being able to angle and raise them as I wanted and move them away from me as far as I wanted. Dual monitor arm that I started with prevented me from pushing them far enough away.

There is a good amount of space between the table and the wall. So the connection point of my monitors is hanging in that space.

And all this is resting on a beautiful gray 96 inch long desk made by a company called Mayline.

Backwall. National park posters and casino chips.Underneath the back side of the desk there is a shelf kind of thing is hiding ALL the horde of the wires of this office. None of them are visible and there is nothing under the desk.

The back wall decoration is an idea that I’ve conceived years ago. I’ve acquired a large format book that had a lot of art done in vintage style depicting all of the national parks of United States. I loved the art and finally I have a place to display it.

Hidden mess of wires sitting on a shelf between the desk and the window.I’ve picked out some of the national parks that we have visited. We’re going to add two more frames to the bottom row in the near feature. On the side I have a place for my small old collection of casino chips.

The chair is Steelcase Gesture. I’m still getting used to it, and still is not sure if it was worth the investment. The sofa folds out into a queen size bed so this office can serve as a guest room. Which makes the computer powering the whole setup being a laptop convenient.

And to finish it all off there is an LED lamp connected to a wall light switch and a pair of simple curtains to cover the black holes of the windows in the later hours of the day.

Arosha’s Desk

VIVO Height Adjustable Childrens Desk & Chair Set.Just a short note on our new home improvement. Arosha has outgrown his old work desk that was given to us by Zhanna. It has gotten a LOT of use. Alёna did some research and ordered a new desk and chair set made by VIVO. It has a lot of good reviews and both pieces are height adjustable. Arosha has a lot of use for the desk and hopefully it will serve him for a long time.

Arosha's old desk. Taking in March of last year.This school year he has 2 hours or so of homework on daily basis. This is the first grade of Gifted and Talented program. Sometimes it seems that Gifted and Talented stands not for more challenging or interesting work, but for simply more. I’m sure doing a lot is beneficial and will surely put him ahead of his peers outside of the program, but for the first grade it just seems like an overkill.

Office Update

Office desk decor.Last time I posted pictures of my office (quite a while ago) it looked really bland, since we just moved in back than. Over the time I added some color and a bunch of trinkets1 and accessories. Beside the landscape print-outs I also have a cool black & white photograph of Alena and Arosha on my desk — the “UFO” one from my film series.

Work, Work, Work

I'm in front of my monitors.There is only a bit more than a single day left in 2009. We aren’t really posting much since we’re mostly consumed by work. For me it’s one of the busiest times of the year and I barely have any free time.

My desk.I’m really looking forward towards the New Year celebration as it is the biggest family holiday for us.

My desk from the door to my office.There are a lot of companies that are switching offices lately and ours is not an exception. However when it’s downgrading for majority for us it was an opposite. We grew out of our old place and a new one is a huge upgrade that a lot of us were looking forward to for a long time.

My sweet dual monitor setup.I haven’t had a chance to post any photos of it, so here they are. It’s very nice when you have a work setup that you like. Things flow much more smoothly and more stuff get done.

My Cubicle

My CubicleЗаказала себе для работы “самодельный” календарь и несколько фотографий на Snapfish — хочется как-то свой уголок украсить. Я уже пристроила возле компьютера кактус, веточки бамбука, цветочек из IKEA, кружку, привезённую Маруками нам в подарок из Арубы, и пачку с разными чаями. ) Мышка, кстати, оказалась очень удобной — все мои коллеги тоже заценили. mrgreen Фотография рабочего места получилась не супер — снята iPhone-ом.
