For what I promise will be the last time, here's a photo of the office/study I've been working on. It's come a long way from being Karen's cluttered storage room.
What it cost in the end:
- Laminate flooring - £110 (B&Q)
- Plastering - £100 (Bill from down road)
- Desk - £146 (Ikea)
- Chair - £99 (Office World)
- Shelves - £29 (Ikea)
- Picture Frames - £45 (Ikea)
- Light shade - £35 (Ikea)
- Whiteboard - £30 (Office World)
Not bad for just under £600 (~US$1000). At least now I have somewhere I can actually sit and use all the PCs as they're meant to be. It also means I am now ready to dedicate a whole load of times to the site. Something I've neglected for the past few months. Prepare for a whole host of treats coming your way.
It's fair to say the room is all but finished now - just a few finishing touches here and there. Hey, maybe I should get myself a job on a home make-over show like Big Strong Boys. Talking of which, I went to see The Matrix Reloaded last week. Don't know why as I don't even like the first film. Anyway, halfway through, Karen turns to me to say "Those twins used to be on Better Homes with Carol Vorderman!". Not wanting to get in to a discussion in the middle of the film I just gave her a look of disbelief and forgot about it. Turns out she was right!!
