Office Area Reveal

Office Area Reveal

Our “new” office area is finished – finally. It only took me like three months (and no, there wasn’t that much to do, I just procrastinate a lot). Anyway, check it out.

Need I remind you that this was only about two thirds of the rubbish? It can be a bit hard to figure out what to hold on to – I’ll post the guide lines I go by in the next couple of days. After all that, I made… View Post
