Office Nook Transformed

Making Home Base Office Nook After

So one of the biggest downers about living in base housing is you really don't get to pick your floor plan. Sometimes I wish they were completely uniform all across the country. That way you would know what to expect when you arrive at your next duty station. No such luck. When we moved here, we took our house site unseen. Sometimes you have to do that if you want a place to live right away. And … [Read more...]
