And now the reveal none of you have been waiting for: the study!!!
I’ve been procrastinating on this one for several reasons, one of which is the serious lack of sunlight which makes my pictures very dark. The study is much brighter than what you would think from some of these shots.
So, going back, I bought a rig with twin beds in the back:
I had initially thought I would use one bed as a ‘sofa’ and rip out the other one to build a desk, but I wound up putting a mattress against the back wall over the basement pass-through compartment. Then, for about a year, I lived with a built-in desk on the driver’s side and the base of the other bed on the passenger side serving as a storage trunk:
I ended up bringing in a new desk with drawers and putting the desk on the driver’s side, and after some searching I found a matching filing cabinet for the passenger side. A terribly disappointing paint job and new curtains later, this is the result:
This room isn’t perfect yet, but it’s very, very close! My next projects for it beyond what I just mentioned are electrical. I want to move the undercabinet 120V plug to a more sensible location and also add a 12V plug.
