Who else works from home?



So i just started working from home this week and wondering who else on here works from home aswell.

So far the greatest mod to my home office is a bluetooh headset to roam around. Otherwire my office setup a pretty bootleg

I set it up in the spare room. It was last minute so I didn't get a proper desk or chair or set up the mini bar yet

If you work outta your house post up a pic of your set up for inspiration for me.

I have the option to work from home but prefer working from my office. Coffee is always readily available plus the gym is in the company facilities.
Saying that whenever i need to (say my7 son is sick or too lazy to go to work i can always do that!

I have the option of working from home and I spend more time at home than at the office during work hours. I never found my colleagues to be warm and fuzzy; besides I don't work in a team.

Not much to post up. I work at my desk where I study as well.

I have the option as well and do it on occasion (spent 3 weeks working from home plus 1 week vaca when my daughter was born in May).

Prefer the office - comraderie (sp?) with colleagues is priceless in helping the job.

I work from home for now and I love it. However we are getting to big and will have to move to a 30 acre piece of land and build a new house with enough room for 30 transport trucks. Oh yes the most important is a 200'x300' garage. This way home would be only a few minutes walk.

I work from home at times, but I prefer being at the Office.

I usually only work from home when i'm getting things delivered, or something that requires me to be at home.

I don't know if I could handle working from home.... I would get distracted.

I've done it a few times for work... sometimes I'll be given project work, and it just involves sitting in front of a computer and plugging away at stuff. I did a few weeks at home doing that to save on the commute... but I can't say that I wouldn't have gotten more done if I was at the office.
