After more than five years of working in an unfinished basement utility space, I finally completed a renovation of my office space to finish and enclose my work area. I guess it’s amazing what you can tune out when most of your work happens on a computer screen. However, this has been a long time coming. Here are some before and after images of roughly the same viewpoints. Of course, I did a 3D model as well to figure out the space. The end of the post has a quicktime VR of the design.

first view towards exterior:

second view looking towards stairs and laundry/ mechanical area beyond. There’s not a “before” view, as the utility shelving I had against the stairs was just too ugly to look at:

And here’s a panoramic VR rendering:
