The office is a major task. It is one that I need help with because we need to move the bike rack and to install the Elfa shelves which I ordered today. I was on a deadline since the yearly sale was over today. Before heading to the Bahamas I went to the Container Store to get the unit designed. I had sketches with dimensions and all components that will be used in the proposed office. It should have been a no brainer. The guy who I was working with was not exactly the most detailed oriented person. I really was not liking what he was doing and I tried to explain and he wasn’t listening so I took the stuff and told him I would come back after I revisited the room.
The system was basically broken down into 3 sections, none were the same size and the end piece just sort of stopped. So I went back today and explained to a different person that I didn’t like it and asked why each section need to be a different size. There was plenty of space since the entire wall was not utilized the first time around.
This girl was not much better but at least she asked for a design check and someone who was more knowledgable came out to help. During the conversation I realized I missed one dimension which was the width of my computer. These people were like it will fit don’t worry. I was like ok let me just go on line and look. They were getting very inpatient with me. It took 5 minutes. Really it is their job to work with me. I am now wondering if they work on commissions and they wanted to get to the next person. In the end we finally got something that was uniform and I could live with. I bought everything I needed and I can pick it up tomorrow. Step 1 done.
Once I get everything here then I can start putting everything together and organizing the space. I was going to start that today and empty the closet that is completely full of who the heck knows but I was overwhelmed because I did not have a place to put the stuff. Currently that corner of the room has all the stuff that I did not know what to do with from the other projects I have already tackled. Don’t worry pictures to come as I get through the office task.
What I learned today is that sometimes I do go back to my old self and start one thing and get distracted by another. I suppose I can not help that but today I did realize it and stopped. Tomorrow I will tackle the closet and get the things organized for when I can hang the office unit. Not sure when Steve’s friend can come down to help me. So until then.
