The Tech Shed - Remote Work Space

Hi I am Mat Silva & I work remotely. I wanted to share some pictures of my work space (what I call the "tech shed").

I am still working on better cable management 😬

When it rains, I really enjoy being able to feel close to it.

& every now and then my dogs want to hang with me in here.

Mat, do you find yourself going into the house constantly to use the bathroom? I just worry that would be my problem. 😁

Great space, though! I want one for sure.

Hey Josh, thanks! I've definitely been asked that before and fortunately it's not a big issue for me 👍

Did you build this yourself? I'd love to hear that part of the story.

I think the 'making of' deserves it's own post, but here is the tldr;

  1. Got a concrete slab poured by a local company.
  2. Designed the exterior of the shed and had a company that builds sheds, build the 'shell' and deliver it(which was amazing to watch them deliver it fully built)
  3. Did the interior (drywall, insulation, flooring, etc) and the electrical DIY with the help of family members.

Lol I have joked about putting a loft in it, the ceiling is high enough 😁

Very cool. My first thought though was 'is it secure?'

Welp, I have wyze.com cams setup all around my house, in my backyard and one in my shed, which has been pretty dependable to date. Also my backyard has a privacy fence installed, so that helps.
