    I have been doing the same thing...kitchen table, dining room table, bedroom, etc... To me the hardest part has been not being able to leave my papers spread because I have to move them out of the way for bed time, supper time, etc. it can be difficult to keep things organized.

    We are in the process of getting a loan to build a house and I will have a small office space there. It won’t be very big but it’s enough for me to have a desk, computer, file cabinets, etc. I can leave papers spread out, leave blue prints spread out. I think that is going to be so nice And help me stay organized and efficient.

      Awesome! Just be sure to close the door to your office so your cat doesn't get into it and mess up your papers.

        Sounds like maybe you’ve had experience with a cat destroying your office??

          Home Office in basement. No windows but extremely quiet.

          Shop office too noisy. Phone rings, guys asking questions, customers or sales people walking in.

          Tried doing estimates at the coffee shop, but waitress always bugging-- want more coffee? Everything good?

              With plenty of empty tables, and bill paid, no more coffee, water, or concern. If tip gets picked up, reload tip & ask for refills.

                  As the owner of many cats I find this incredibly funny!

                    My son has the Bose in-ear noise canceling earbuds.... they are incredible.


                    I use airpods at my desk when I’m really trying to focus in on work. Not quite as nice as the Bose, but they work for me. Listening to music is the best thing for me to focus.

                      You know my office is like 10 minutes down the road, and I’ve never liked working at home. But sitting here now working at home and thought about this thread.

                      My son is at soccer, my bonus daughter is at gymnastics, and I’m just chilling with this mule trying to catch up. Today was kinda crap and I didn’t feel like looking at my desk any longer, plus, I can’t drink this mule and then drive home.

                      This is actually kinda ok. I think maybe I do need a home office.

                        The requirements are fairly strict. It can't be a multipurpose space, like the kitchen table a few hours a week. It has to be dedicated to the business function. Plus, now you have to keep track of all the depreciation you claim and deduct that from the purchase price of the house when you go to sell it. Well, assuming you're over however many hundred thousands of dollars it takes until you don't qualify for the pass on paying tax on the capital gains on the house.
