You might remember my post from a few weeks ago where I mentioned BusinessWeek’s solicitation for pictures of home-based offices. They sorted through entries and came up with their favorite ten, published today (alas, Kathy’s airstream trailer was not included, most likely because she didn’t submit her photo).
I think my favorite is the last one (pictured), architect Neal Zimmerman who has a multiple-station set up which can accommodate different work activities like client meetings, project or administrative work. If it were mine, I might have more art or plants, but that is just a minor detail. I am a Virgo, so streamlined organization really appeals to me. While funky and free, some of the other featured setups like typing on a rooftop would not work long-term.
This feature is part of a broader segment on home-based businesses. It includes some great stuff, like sorting legitimate home-based businesses from scams, productivity tools, an interview with Tim Ferriss and background on co-working. If you are considering working from home or already do, check it out!
