Custom Home Office Ideas

Prior to the pandemic – I was only using my home office here and there. Now with a country wide lockdown, I have been forced to work from home. My home office setup was less than ideal so over the past few months I decided to transform this work from home office with floating shelves, a Karly desk setup, and a beautiful built-in.

Being an architect, I always start with a design. I will run rough through home office design ideas then we will jump into the home office build. This includes a few Ikea hacks for an affordable built-in unit. I use off the shelf pine shelving to create floating shelves and for a desktop. Once everything is complete, we will look at the cost of setting up this home office.
I think you guys will really enjoy this DIY office makeover/Home office build out! Take a look and let me know in the comments if you liked this new format!
