EYENO CENTRAL COMMAND

!@(officebefore.jpg:R240 http://www.eyeno.net/images/officebefore.jpg “office before”) I spend a lot of time in my home office. Located in our basement, I catch up on work from the office, I work on this blog, listen to music and watch TV. It’s a mess. Badly laid out and full of mismatched furniture. While I was up in Wasaga Beach this week, my wonderful wife went out and bought me a new desk. Quite a surprise when I got back to see two huge boxes in the middle of the living room. Not as much fun when I opened them up to find about 100 different pieces, 20 pounds of hardware and an instruction manual only slightly smaller than “War And Peace”. Time to get started.

A lot more space than it looks when full of crap. The next step is to hump all the pieces out of the living room and down the stairs. Takes about 45 minutes and finally I can start assembly.

Around this time, I had to take a break and go outside to shovel the 6 inches or snow that has fallen and is now being blown around by a raw North wind that is giving us a windchill of about -30. That’s one way to cool down after some manual labor.

Continued working until 10:00 PM. Pretty good progress with the base complete and the hutch ready to be installed and finished. I’m tired and sore. Tomorrow is another day.

All together, it took about 7 1/2 hours of actual construction time.

Enough to get Eyeno Central Command back online. Getting everything else back together will probably take a few weeks but I now have a real office to work in. Thanks Jan!

  1. Looks like you will have to find a new home for some of your “collection”
    Anyway, good looking desk.
    We had a pretty good dump of snow out here but it finally vanished in the rain these past few days. Brian back on the golf course this morning. First game of the year.
    Hoping you will keep up the blog at least once in a while as it keeps us in contact with Ontario and some of the folks we know.
