The former family room shrunk when I added an equipment room for my home theater so I converted it to a home office. I continue with the pine plank design found throughout the rest of the home. The cabinet doors use 32mm hinges and again aluminum angle for the edgebanding. The underside of the overhead cabinets are deep and hold florescent light fixtures to illuminate the counter work area.

The counter top and drawers are a concrete appearing high pressure plastic laminate instead of actual concrete. The wood plank flooring is a linoleum from Canada that looks like an old worn beam flooring recovered from a industrial building.

The design concept here was vertical flow of wood to steel, to concrete, to cork, and back to wood.

What in the world do you do? I always wondered where CNN came from! Looks like a nice home office for any line of work. Thanks for the pics. Don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood to multi-task all of a sudden….

I am sooo jealous, that office is awesome!

You could never leave the Lumberjocks site, create a sketch-up design, watch the latest Wood Whisperer pod cast AAAND never miss the scores and highlights of the big game on the TV all at the same time!

How do you ever get into the workshop???????

Looks like a “situation room”. Whatever you do, DON’T TOUCH THE RED BUTTON! Just kidding, actually I am jealous. Great Office.

This is a fabulous office. Just guessing I would say that you are a multi-tasking individual. I like the pine/aluminum theme that you have put into your home.

I just hope that you don’t get tired of it and have to remodel. But then again this would give you an excuse (as if you need one) to spend more time in the shop developing a new theme.

Thanks for the post.

Geez….this goes way beyond any definition of “home office” I ever thought of. Is that a plotter? You don’t see to many of those in the home setting!

Thank you all for the nice comments.

The printer is a HP Design Jet 500. It can do plotting but it is a graphic arts printer. I use it to help me when I am trying out a design as I can reproduce full scale. I have made a few posters with it.

I use the digital equipment to review photos and video/audio material we shoot where I work. I also use it for Power point presentation development where I have to insert video’s. I have a considerate boss who allows me to use flextime and digital commuting.

The three screens are necessary for video or still work; left = raw, right = control boxes, center is work in progress. The TV above will show the finished product as most people would see it or I tap into a movie from various sources ie., DVD, tape, cable, satellite.
