The Cloffice

We live in a small house, considering the Canadian/North American standard.

We also have three children.

So when we finished our basement, we had to think very carefully about how we would divide the space.  I think we did a pretty good job, here’s a timelapse video of the construction:

The Cloffice

We only have one bedroom downstairs that has been serving as a guest room for a few years.

Now that I’m working from home and needed a space to set up a workstation, that room seemed like the perfect candidate.

There is, however, no room for a queen bed, shelving, and a desk in there.

That’s when we had the idea for the “cloffice.”

We saw a few ideas on Pinterest on how to set up an office in a closet.  And we loved it!

So this has been my little project for the last few days: to convert a closet into a mini office.

This week I had an electrician come and install three double outlets so I can have power in there:


Sometime in the next few days I will receive a desk and chair that I purchased recently.  They will go in there, and then I’ll be good to go.

I’ll post more pictures as the work progresses 🙂
