Two days ago I began the final stretch of my client's lake home and after a couple hours I realized that my book on tape wasn't holding my attention, I was busy daydreaming about my own little home.
I'm so excited to fix up my office. Its the time of year when the sun rises as I'm beginning my work day and every morning I pass my disaster of an office and see that glorious sunlight streaming through the cherry trees, casting a pink glow through the room, and I think how much I'd rather be working there than downstairs in my dark, cluttered livingroom.
I'm planning on ripping out the horrible carpet left by the last tenant and putting down a faux hardwood (probably the Ikea bamboo). I'm going to call on my friend Kevin for help now that he's a pro, having finished his own condo.
I initially wanted to divide the room into two rooms by building a platform that would hold the pull out couch and other guest room accessories. I'd further separate this area by putting up an Ikea floor to ceiling open bookshelf. But at this point I think I'll skip the platform. I'd still like to have the step up into the guest/bedroom area but that can wait.
So next week I'm going to take all of the books and paperwork, and other junk out of the office and rip out the carpet. Then hopefully the week after I can get Kevin to spare a day and we'll throw in the wood floors. Then I'll probably take another week to bring everything back into the office and organize everything.
