This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for some time. It’s now eight months since I moved house and I’ve set up an office in the back of the house so I thought I’d share some pictures with you. The room is actually a small conservatory which was lovely and cosy in the winter but has been too hot in the current climate. Fortunately I’m on Google Drive so I’ve been able to upload my work to the cloud and work on my laptop in a cooler part of the house.
Although I’ve had blinds fitted to all the windows in the office and a screen guard to stop glare from the sun, what I really need is a roof blind. It’s on my list of things still to do/buy in my new home and I expect that by next summer I’ll be sorted. Then, if it’s still too hot I’ll probably add a small air conditioning unit. Apart from that the only other thing I want to change is to swap the large cabinet for a smaller one as it dominates the room at the moment. However, that would mean yet another clear out and I’ve had enough of those for the time being.
I’m one of those writers who is happiest having a separate area of the home where I can work uninterrupted. There is always so much to do when you move house but at least for now I’ve got a work space which is comfortable most of the time, and which has the potential to be a pleasant, self-contained work area in the future.

It looks good. Eventually, it’ll be exactly what you need it to be. I’m one of those writers who can write literally anywhere and be good. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors!
Thank you and thank you for visiting my blog. I envy you being able to write anywhere. if I get interrupted from my stream of thought I can’t recall it later so it gets really frustrating. 🙂
I sympathise with you having to set up a new office, I had to do that myself a while ago, and there was so much clearing out! But it looks nice and light and you look pretty well set up – well done!
Thanks Georgia. Yes, I did loads of clearing out when I moved house and actually went down from two cabinets to one. I think there’s still plenty in that cabinet that needs to go though and I’m sure all get round to it one day – eventually. 🙂
Congratulations on the office, Heather. You may need to move to a cooler summer office when global warming really gets bad twenty years down the line, but hopefully it will be okay until then. It has been incredibly hot, hasn’t it?
I think I still have some work to do with this one. Hopefully, installing roof blinds will do the trick but, if not, I might get an aircon unit. 🙂
