'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Workspace Upgrade - Initial ideas

One of the things that allows more productivity is a nice workspace.  I know from experience that having a clean and organized space not only allows you to find and use your supplies better but also just makes you more likely to want to spend time there.
 
In the areas in my house that I see this play out the most are:
 
Kitchen: Clean and dishes put away etc.  Much more likely to want to actually cook vs eating crappy take out.
Drawing: When the table is clean, not cluttered and my tools are close, I am much more likely to use the space.
Jewelry: I have a lot to get done.  I haven't worked on anything in a long time.  Partially due to being busy, but partially simply because it's a total mess right now.
Model area:  Again total gong show right now and that has made me less likely to want to be in it.
 
As this blog is about the war gaming hobby, as you can imagine we are going to be looking at my model space.
 
As you can see there is a slight semblance of order, but really it's a mess with everything everywhere.


I thought I would start this with a list of things I would like to do to make things better.
 
  • Paint storage.
  • Paintbrush area.
  • Terrain bits storage area.
  • Figure storage area.
These are all my first initial thoughts and will take some time to get organized and move forward with.  I am hoping with a basic idea I can approach the problem in smaller steps and accomplish my goal.
