Garage Office Update 4

I am fairly pleased with the progress in just over two weeks. I have held class and more than a few meetings in the space, and I am excited to continue to put in the finishing touches, especially an eventual chalk mural by my super-talented wife.

  • Installed door.
  • Completed texturing and painted white walls and chalk wall.
  • Installed standing and seated desks, including a keyboard stand for the standing desk.

The space is small (4ft x 4.5 ft) so it is hard to capture it in photos, but here goes!

Garage Office Update 3

  • Completed drywall and mudded (for the first time … a little rough)
  • Textured walls and ceiling
  • Painted walls and roof (need to finish chalk corners.)
  • Reinforced door wall for eventual door.

Garage Office Project Update 2

  • Purchased drywall, and drove it home in the back of a Honda Odyssey. (Given the near perfect fit, I imagine the Honda engineers planned for such things.)
  • Installed insulation and started hanging drywall.
  • Built subfloor using plywood attached to flat 2x4s that I screwed into the concrete floor.

Garage Office Project Update 1

Started demo on a small (20 sq. ft.) closet in our garage that will hopefully soon become a quiet place to pray and work and video conference in (moderate) peace.


  • Clean out junk.
  • Demo down to studs
  • Consult a good friend re: insulation, AC, and drywall
  • Purchase AC unit and insulation
  • Test potential layout before installing insulation and drywall
