Here’s the situation… Starting June 1, I will need a home office to operate my consulting business. I am planning an addition that will ultimately house a “real” office. In the interim, I am looking at probably 6 months where I’ll need to carve out some space.
My plan is to use part of my finished basement (approx 10 x 10 section). The basement is now the kids’ playroom. Kids are 5, 4, 2.
We will be able to keep the kids out of the basement during work hours. However, during off hours, when we DO let them down there, I’d like to protect the space where my “office” area will be.
I’m thinking a straight partition wall to limit their access. Wall does not need to provide privacy… just a security perimeter! BuI I will need to pass through. Maybe something 3 ft. high that I can step over and they can’t? I can always add concertina wire later if needed.
Any suggestions for design, materials, etc?? Criteria are that it be relatively cheap and easy. THANKS as always!
