I'm at a client site today upgrading a laptop and installing a router. The office is in the Grain Exchange Building, a 90 year old sandstone building in the center of downtown Calgary. There has had very little done in the way of renovations in the last 50 years. The ceilings are 12 feet tall; the heating is via steam radiators; the windows are all original. The atmosphere of the office is old-fashioned and strangely comforting. The client hasn't done too much to fix it up - a coat of paint, some 1940's vintage furniture, some 1940's vintage posters and continental maps on the wall. All in all a very pleasing effect.
If I had to have an office outside of my home, this is a place that I could easily come to every day. What a pleasant time I'm having.
