Office Views

Wood Guy

Donna posted her office view, a pleasant cityscape, in another thread. I'll post my home office view in the comments. What do you see from your office chair?

Here's my view. Don't mind the old garage--it needs to be either torn down or fixed up. Of course I have a lot of sketches for making it into a cool rural-modern office space. On the other side of the hill in the distance, a mile away, is a blueberry field with 100-mile views--a nice place to go for a mental reset.

My wife's new tulip bed is on its way out and the lawn needs to be mowed but I was waiting for the dandelions to pass so the few insects we have around this year would have some food. And we have a major infestation of browntail moth which means just going outside can result in a poison ivy-like rash. Country life is nice but it has its challenges.

The view from my home office is 1000x better than my office office.

I look out on a membrane roof, there used to be a deck over part of it, but the building will be renovated in 2 years and ownership doesn't care much anymore. Beyond that is the ski area with hotels and condos. It looks nicer with 3 ft of snow.

Here's my view, if I swivel my chair around. The little tomato thing in front is an ergonomic perch stool that I'm trying to use more often as my doctor just this morning assigned me to physical thrapy for sitting-related back pain :-(

The crosswalk and paving are part of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, which runs right under the window. Nice for people watching!

Here’s mine.  Soon to be 5 year old clearly not doing virtual school included for scale.

Can you pull the lumber tag off the end of the swing cantilever and retake the pic? asking for marketing, thanks

^Joe, the tag is there to remind me that I still need to trim the last 4ish inches off the end of the swing mast.  I added the mast last month but built the rest back in May 2020.

Then cut off the mast then! Dang it man!

Not much of a view from my desk. 


Then again the view once I'm outside the office is pretty nice.

But with way less people and 10x bigger.  It's the National Monument. The rock tower is call the Monument. It's a fun climb.

Last ten feet is a mid 10. The rest is between 7-8.

I'm currently too out of shape for that. I'll second if you lead.

Got the Shibuya-Roppongi expressway right next to me. It's not as noisy as one might expect. It's definitely more fun to ride than to look at though.

Yes. Completely forgot about that passage. Right on the money there.

I can still remember the ticket machine button combination I used to drunkenly get ramen about a mile & a half from there about 3-4 times a week (it was college, don't judge the frequency). I didn't speak a shred of Japanese, so it was essentially a game of Simon for me to order dinner. Hope the place is still open, they were nice folks.

here’s my crappy office view 



I do have to drive at least 5 hours to do inspections. This week I got to drive through the Canadian Rockies from northern Alberta to southern British Columbia, about 12 hour drive.  One my last journey I saw 5 grizzly bears, 1 black bear, at least 100 deer, 2 mountain goats, 4 elk, 1 bald eagle.  Picture of momma grizzly and 2 Cubs below.

a little of both. our office has a balcony that overlooks a nice tree area with a creek and a pond with a bunch of carp in it. those vultures hang out looking for the carp. we have what i think is a red tailed hawk that hangs out as well.

May or may not be well known to some here, but the red tailed hawk is the bald eagle's voice-over actor in the movies. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=156187375

Update: I’m physically in the Chicago office today, so this is my view for today. 




Gonna be hard going back to Naptown after this.

To be fair, I’ve been in that office before.
