The completed workplace
This is the completed result of months of planning and hard labor. Most of the inspiration for this project came from LifeHacker's 'Featured Workspaces'. Thanks LifeHacker and all those who inspired me.
The highlight of the entire project is what you cannot see, and that is all the cables that run through the room and even upstairs to the living room media center. It involves a clever cable tunneling system that wraps around the room underneath the center shelve which divides the room into two upper and lower halves. The shelves are easily removable for easy convenient access to the tunnels. The tunnels begin (or end) underneath the desk at the rear of the PC, which is the brain of the entire home's media center system. Two TVs (one in the living room upstairs and another on the wall to the left just out of shot (see other pics)) are connected via long range HDMI and USB extender cables.
For someone who spends long hours working at the computer, appropriate lighting is crucial. The room is lit up from both ends, positioned behind me, so as not to allow the brightness distract me. I find the color blue to be extremely relaxing, so the blue mood lighting around the monitors helps during times when troubleshooting code gets too frustrating.
