First off, thanks everyone for your kind words of encouragement and inputs. I really feel like this project has come together very nicely, and I couldn't have done it without you guys pushing me forward.

This update pretty much showcases my office in it's 98% done form. I will do some artistic stuff later with some before and after shots, but for now, I feel like this office is just about complete.

Without further delay... I present to you, my office... (WARNING: A LOT OF PICS)

































That pretty covers the entire angles... As I mentioned, I still have few finishing touches here and there, but nothing that will deviate from what's here right now.

I am hoping to start upgrading by workstations by the end of next week.

Planned upgrades right now is...

1. Replace my E8400 E0 in my Hackintosh with Q9550 E0...

2. Replace PSU in Hackintosh with my new TQ850W...

3. Build a new i3 530 rig in a HTPC case.

4. Replace Corsair H50 in my 2nd i7 Rig with Thermalright VenX

5. Replace Asus P5K Deluxe in my 4.3Ghz E8400 E0 Rig (The one with 2x Acer Monitors) with Asus Maximus X48 Board...


As promised I will post the FINAL shots later, when I get the place dusted and ready for camera...

Thanks for watching guys!!!

Can you please remove the pictures from the quote? No need to see it twice.

Very cool setup. Overall, how happy are you? Anything you would do different?

Whew... Just got back from Memphis, TN, which is about 330miles from where I live. Just went there for a quick fun trip, and came back about 10lbs heavier... Memphis just has a lot of great places to eat, and my wife and I love to go on a food expedition.

Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome. As with any projects, doing something always leaves somethings to be desired in terms of minor details, and my only regret right now is that I should have spent a bit more time on the wire management. I don't know that without doing something a bit more dramatic like creating a custom wire conduits, this could have made things better, but perhaps sometime later, I will do just that, and leave all wires invisible.

Thanks.

Amazing office GoHigh, looks great, everything clean and matching.

Great choice on the AC too, I bought the older version of the same model 2 years ago and its still going strong. Crank it up and turn on the air filter (if the new version has it?) any smoke smells will be gone in a few weeks, speaking from experience.

Hmmm, 330 miles puts you at about Crossville if on a straight I-40 path. I wish I would have found your thread earlier but I must say the results are impressive. I am a contractor by trade, developing commercial real estate with my father. We build buildings and lease them back to companies long term. The T-8's will be a huge improvement over the old T-12 fixtures. A few years ago we remodeled a Fred's building we own with T-8's and the difference was night and day, have been using them ever since.

Overall impressive thread and I'm beginning to think I'm in the wrong line of work.. lol. Next time you and your wife come to Memphis let me know what kind of cuisine you are craving and maybe I can point you in a good direction that might not be "well known" but worth the trip. BTW where did you go eat at this weekend while here?

Yo, thanks for the compliments.

Thanks for the heads-up on the light fixtures. I dunno that my room is any brighter with the T8s, but it's definitely quieter with non of that cold HUM of the T12s...

I actually live in Chattanooga, TN, and it looks like you live just west of Knoxville. I never visited Crossville, but perhaps I will get to one day. It's a lot closer than Memphis for sure...

While I was in Memphis, I ate at the usual places like Gus's Fried Chicken and Rendezvous BBQ, but I also checked out a lot of ethnic places like their awesome Vietnamese restaurants. My wife and I lived there for 4 years, so it was memory lanes for us.

Good luck on your family business.

Yea... I agree. I am looking at some plants right now, but the problem is I couldn't keep one alive in the past. Maybe I will get something fake, I dunno.
