I really really need to start looking for a permanent home that I can make an office in.

Working from one screen in bed sucks. (yes, I am still in a hotel room)

Been too lazy on weekends to go look for something more permanent.

Been here over 6 months, because I wasn't sure where I would be right now. But since I have made the decision finally, it is time to look for something more permanent.

My productivity at home is 0%;

    Speaking from experience, working from home can have all kinds of focus issues because you get a bit too comfortable or too easily distracted. I rent an office from the local university for $300/month because it gives me a place to have just enough focus (and to leave work at work, if I choose to).

    whether you work from there or not, not having a permanent location to rest your head can be a bit taxing regardless. Think I spent an entire year one time with my shit scattered between two towns and 4 residences and not one of them had my name on the lease. That shit was for the birds.

    Totally agree. Especially since my wife and son are with me :) bit crowded.

    Really it is just laziness getting out of this place, but I think next week I am going to be serious about it.

    I only do projects I am helping others out with from home (although I worked remote for over 3 years previously), I do have an actual day job where I go into office now.

    @hash-table hold up, nevermind the son, kids find adventures in anything. How the hell have you managed to get your wife to live in a hotel for 6 months? Much less let you work while your there. They must have one hell of a spa and amenities package 😂

    I'm confused. May I ask where are you from? In here, staying in a hotel 6 months would cost you like paying rent 6 years! More than enough motivation to go out and find a place damn quick 😬

    @MrJimmy there's a few hotels that let you pay by the week or month called 'extended stays'. They're pretty well cheap in alot of places, i know about 50 miles north of me there's one for $175 a week that has wifi, cable, and nice rooms. I stayed there for a week awhile ago for a contract

    @PerfectAsshole My entire mortgage is $300 a month and this is like a 3600 sq. ft. brick house sitting on 2 1/2 acres.

    @M1sf3t yeah my mortgage was the same until i payed it off. But the point i was getting at was that some places give better discounts based on how long you are staying and in some cases by the time you pay all the bills that a house requires it might make more sense to stay in a hotel and toss an extra $100 a month for maid service

    @PerfectAsshole yea I guess by the time you figure utilities your getting close to $600 or so but over time your still talking about a reasonable difference in cost. Even figuring the taxes and insurance in your talking about maybe $800 but if your going to do that you've got to weigh in the advantage of having an asset to either sell or refinance if you get in a bind.

    She won't leave me no matter what I try. :)

    @hash-table I hope your not trying very hard, sounds like a keeper. Especially if she can sit in the same room with you and let you work. Those seem hard to come by.
