Our home technically has a home office, but we never used it.
My husband and I have discussed multiple times over the years about working from home, but we never ended up going through with it.
So for a long time, that home office just collected dust. It was probably a good thing too, since that home office was extremely uncomfortable! The way the room is positioned, it is positioned at the front of the home. The room also has a large window, and with the window, it lets in a lot of sunlight. Because of all of that, the room is almost always incredibly overheated. My husband and I didn’t really have much need for the room though, so we just left it. However, when the pandemic came and everyone started shifting to working from home, my husband started talking more and more about starting to work from home. I think he is seriously considering it now, since his company offered stay at home positions. Because of that, I wanted to surprise him by making the home office as nice as possible. I took some disinfectant spray and cleaned away all of the dust that had gathered over months of being unused, as well as I rearranged the shelves and swept the floor. But the main thing I had to do was get a portable air conditioner. Thankfully, finding portable A/C units was not hard at all. I was able to get one the same day. All I had to do was make a stop at the local HVAC store and pick one up. That way if my husband does start working from home, he won’t be uncomfortable.
