Workspace Plan, finally
I finally created a hard plan for my workspace, and I'm actually kind of happy with the result. Next step: getting stuff, then build the thing!
As some of you might know (but most don't), I don't really have a good workspace at the moment. When moving to this apartment, it was decided that my workspace will be below a loft bed I built to maximize the space available in the apartment. Since then (nearly 2 years ago) I don't have a workspace. For a while I used the dinner table as desk and sat on a bench, then I get a (pretty tiny) used desk as a temporary solution, and then I procrastinated. I had some ideas floating around on what I wanted to have in my work area, and how to organize everything, but I never actually made a plan. I had some rough sketches of ideas I threw away later, but nothing actually doable.
Some of the requirements I really wanted to incorporate were: having at least two actual desks, have lots of storage room, space for multiple screens, possibly a drawing space, some good storage space for tools and crafts, and a few minor details. I have to say, I managed to actually incorporate nearly all the requirements! Let's get over them one by one.
I tried to consider statics and stability when planning this, and drew everything in blender - as much in scale as possible. This means that theoretically I could go ahead and purchase everything right away - I won't, I'll sleep on it a few days, but if I'm still convinced, I now can go ahead and purchase everything in one go and then actually build it. When actually building it I will try to document the process as much as possible, and I will definitely post some updates and pictures of the finished thing, so look forward to that! Also, I will have more details in the finished product (of course), for example more lighting, chalkboard areas, lots of walkways and climbing spaces for my feline assistant, ... Yes, I have a bit of work ahead of me. But I think the result will be worth it!
