I love working from home because I can set up a custom work environment! I’ve been doing this for a long time, five years, nearly. Eventually, I decided that I wanted to have my own office separate from the bedroom. I wanted to go to bed and not have to look at my desk. I wanted to be able to actually get away from work at the end of the day, so when I went to rent a home with a group of friends, one of the roommates and I split a spare room off the living room to put our desks on either side, with a couch in the middle! Our dog usually curls up on the couch while I work and all the other guys are at work, and my cat sleeps on the bed I put on top of the filing cabinet, however the best part is that the room doesn’t cost us that much extra money–it has its own HVAC system via zone control. This zone heating means that when no one is in the room, I can turn the heat off and close the door so its not costing us any money on the utility bill. I can turn it on when I walk in, and because it’s a whole room baseboard, it heats up pronto! Then, when I’ve fulfilled my quota for the day, I can just shut the heat off again. I’m so happy to have a work space that I can set to my exact comfort levels, without disturbing my roommates.
