Description: I work for a small architecture firm in southern California, and last summer I started working from home 3 days a week. I had a small workspace setup prior to that, but it was inadequate for actual day to day work. I needed storage space for books, my computer, stuff, and a big enough desk surface to roll out drawings.
So, I borrowed, and slightly modified the way we set the office workstations up at my firm. We use Ivar’s as deskstands with door blanks as the desk surface. The setup I’ve done at home is similar, but I’ve used Europly plywood as the desktop. For a small bedroom space, this arrangement works really well.
