There are some things lacking in the office, like spaces for everything to fit, so sometimes you have to take what you have and custom fit it to the space you have. The table in the picture was too big for anything, so I cut it down and made a shelf from the cut-off to hold the coffee maker. We don’t have running water, so we can store bottled water under the table. This is a much better arrangement than the cardboard box that was there.
We wear body armor when we leave the office, but needed to have a place to store it so that we didn’t have them all over the floor, so I put together some storage compartments for everyone to put their gear in so we weren’t tripping over stuff.
The desk shelf allowed for a little better storage of binders and folder on my desk. I am working seven jobs, so keeping things organized helps. You can also see my workbench (really a cover for the electrical wires). kneeling in the rocks is great for your knees.
The No Parking sign was needed so that we can get our port-o-potties serviced. If someone parks in that spot, we suffer with the increased smell until we can get them cleaned again.
The monitor stand is for one of our desks that has six computer monitors on it. I found a broken desk on base and cut the desktop to make a monitor stand to hold three of the six monitors.
The government always purchases furniture from the lowest bidder, so you can guess how long our stuff lasts here. One guy had the drawers on his desk fall off and break, so I built him a replacement part that actually turned out better than what he had. Nothing like better equipment for the job – and free too!
Next thing to tackle is to create a work table for my team to get their daily work tasks completed.
