You just missed it...

STAPLES had them on a huge SALE that ended on Saturday.

Originally the price for one "L" is $169+$169+$39=$377+TAX+FS... The original prices on each bookcase is $169.

I bought them for $109 per desk, $9 per corner unit, and $99 per bookcase, so I spent a total of $652+Tax+FS.

They are called Z-Line Design Horizon Collection. They are made of solid wood, and reinforced with steel. It also features laminated 8mm glass tops.

You can watch and game on just a single tv, unless you wanna do both simultaneously.

Yea... I know you are right... But, I really like having the 32" as my monitor, and I do like to have ESPN on in the background... The thing is, using a 47" as a PC monitor is not exactly great, and using a 32" as a TV is a bit small. I even thought about getting a 26" Samsung T26HD LCD monitor to replace my 32", and using the 32" as my TV... I dunno... That might work too I guess. Although I am not 100% committed yet on what I am going to do (That will be the last thing I do after everything else is completed), I am hoping I will have enough money left over to just get a bigger TV... Thanks for your input though.

That's a great office... A little scattered though... But very nice build.

Thanks for the link.

Breakdown of my office starts on Monday, and will probably continue until Wednesday. I will start to post some pics of my systems, while I blow them out with some air... I am thinking about just going ahead and installing my VenX while I am doing it as well...

I thought about converting one of the storage areas as the "SERVER" closet with network equipment all centralized... Maybe I will do it to keep everything streamlined and clean...

I was thinking about making my closet a network area, but then my mom would have a fit with me running cables through the walls lol.

I have a 6ft 19" media rack that's enclosed, but got no shelves for it though

Well, it looks like another busy week of work again, which will cut into the time I allotted into this project, but at least I have decided on the flooring option.

I decided to just go ahead and do the wood laminate flooring, which will keep the dust low, and look nicer.

I am getting my buddy to come and help me with this, and it looks like work will begin as soon as all the current carpet is taken out, the base trim removed, and painting is done.

I decided to go with these...



It will add nice blend with the furniture and wall color, and it seems of great quality. When I looked into getting carpet done, the materials was going to cost just about the same, so it was a no brainer...

I will be starting to breakdown the office soon... Check back soon.
