Yes. I work from home and have a whole room. My area is usually more cluttered than yours appears to be, but is equally afflicted with insufficient shelf space for all the books. (I notice that some titles are the same, which is always a fun game to play when getting a glimpse of a fellow Puritan Boarder's shelves.)
Feel free to post pictures. I really would love to actually see yours too.I have a corner in our bedroom that is my office/study.
It's not like I'm starring at the wall all the time, but I know what you mean. I guess you get used to it.I would find the pictures of men right before my face a distraction as I’m trying to contemplate God.
Jonathan Edwards, John ChrysostomMatthias, I love all the photos of great theologians. Help me out though. I see:
RC Sproul, Calvin, a puritan?, Owen, Augustine?, Bunyan
White, ?????, Luther, another puritan?, Spurgeon, MLJ
Bar counter? Knocking back a few while grading?I have a small desk in our entertainment room that I'm the primary occupant of that I read at in the mornings, but once the day begins and the house is a buzz I tend to be nomadic and read/study wherever peace and quiet can be found.
Most of my personal library can be found in our storage/overflow room in the basement. Often when taking the trash out or working in the garage I stop in that room and can be found pulling a book off the shelf and reading for a few minutes here and there. If the topic is relevant to the musing of the day I'll take it upstairs and it finds a spot in the stack of books on my desk or nightstand. Once the stack of books grows too tall I'll thin the herd and take a bunch back downstairs to be re-shelved for future reference.
My children homeschool and it's interesting to think about their place for study. Most evenings I return from work and their school books can be found spread out on the dining table, at our kitchen nook, or at times on the rug in the living room. Worksheets I need to grade are often on my desk or on the bar counter.
Our entire house is a classroom...
True. I do most of my stuff on the computer. Two monitors help. If you turn around from the view in the photo, there is a harpsichord, electronic keyboard station, and a couple smaller tables. I can spread out if need be.Not a lot of space right there. That would be a problem for me.
A few years ago I built a backyard office because my house is small and I needed a place to work/study. It also serves as my home library. It’s a 10x12 on skids based on plans I found online. I ran electricity and internet out to it. In the winter it’s heated by a ceramic radiator (the white square behind the black chair) which literally costs $10 for the entire year to keep it warm. In the summer I have a window AC unit to keep it cool and keep the humidity down. It’s messy right now. I’m a Trekkie so I call it the “Ready Room.”
Come on now! I'm a tee-totaling Baptist...my house is as dry as the Atacama Desert in Chile!Bar counter? Knocking back a few while grading?
