Tracy:

Let’s talk about CLOFFICE. So you, you told me that word and I said, CLOFFICE, I’ve seen CLOFFICE. Yes. So a CLOFFICE, is an office in somebody’s closet. Right. But I have seen exactly what you were mentioning where it’s not like a big walk-in closet. It’s just the closet with a door or the double sliding doors removed. And the desk pushed to the back of the closet and it’s regular standard closets,

Tego:

Two foot deep. Right. And so standard

Tracy:

Desk about the same. And

Tego:

So I, I I saw this and then on Pinterest, they had a, you know, a bunch of different, you know, of course on Pinterest. I have a slide show in app for everything, but there’s there’s CLOFFICE photos showing what people have done that, you know, needed an office space. And they had a closet that maybe wasn’t being used.

Tracy:

It was an extra bedroom or something, or they made their bedroom also have an office. And they use that little 24 foot deep closet to put a desk and make some shelves and get set up whether it’s for school as a child or a college student or,or working from home. So, pretty interesting. So if you think you’re, you don’t have office space, you might in, in a bedroom with a closet or a hall closet. I actually showed a house a couple of weeks ago where they had made sort of a entry closet into their office. So lots of creative, there’s one under stairs. So look at Pinterest, if you want to get some inspiration on that one. So

Tego:

Good. It’s a really good efficient use of space. And obviously in the, you know, we’re where people are now working for home. They’re trying to figure out a way to have a space and maybe a little private too.

Tracy:

I think by now, most people have figured it out. You know, it just dawned on me today, Tego that we’re almost at a year of being in this COVID situation. You know, most people have already figured out how to do school, how to do homework, how to work from home, how to get their dogs not to bark. Oh, we haven’t figured that one out yet. When, when I work from home, very often, one of our three dogs will start barking because they see something outside and have to bark.

Tego:

Well, I think it’s funny how people are. Oh, my I apologize. I’m sorry. It’s like, no, we’re, we’re past that. Yeah. You don’t have to apologize for your dog barking.
