while the view is quite different from what i had in seattle, i do get full control over setting up my workspace however i like it.
my desk was cheap (and carrie has an identical one) – $99/each at a used office furniture store. they have cranks that adjust the height of the work surface. my chair was another $99 at a different used office furniture store, and it’s 6-way adjustable.
and my desk (it’s never this neat, unless i’m taking a picture of it):
my plywood laptop/LCD stand that i built, it hides most of my cord mess inside:
and i covered the laptop side with stick-on rubber feet to allow air to circulate:
this is where i do all my SQUAREDESIGN web design and development. i keep overhead low, and pass the savings onto my back account.
