    Home Office

    For those of you that do not have a dedicated home office space, what do you do to have a quiet place to work on estimates and bids?

    Or maybe you have a home office now but early in your career you had young kids, wife, no office and you had to make do with what you had. What did you do to be able to spread papers out, and focus on detailed estimates?

    Kitchen table and Family-canceling headset (aka noise canceling).

        My truck makes an excellent office space. Lighting is adjustable. Quiet if I want, music or news otherwise. Always the perfect temperature. I can adjust the view out the window to suit my liking. People will even hand me breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert through the window. Laptop and a tank of gas is all you need.

                  I had a home office space, and a shop office for quite a while now. Getting up early was still the best method. Wife and kids both need attention.

                    Definitely during the work day including breaks. Considered often when I'm home as my home office computer has way too many distractions loaded and it's not very quiet in the house.

                      bose QC on ear or around ear are nice. bear in mind they wont cancel 100% of noise. but they certainly take the edge off.

                            Just in my bedroom with my laptop. I spread the papers on my bed and figure stuff out. It usually doesn't take me long because I have a formula that usually works well and comes out with a fair price for most of my bids.
