This space has a front office with three equipped workstations ready for your laptop plus a fourth seating location, a meeting room with wall TV and projector, a large hall/lounging area with large wall TV, kitchen and dining area, and large bathroom with extra amenities. A great workspace for someone or a small team who wants to get away from the busy-ness of the city, while staying close. A big open space for one to four, plus room for meetings. Fast internet (wired dedicated/firewalled from rest of home's network, with separate WiFi,) serene views, and some nice extra amenities. Unit has a separate entrance, with entry code provided (changed daily/per-reservation) for no-contact entry. Unit cleaned/disinfected after each rental. Home has whole-home HEPA filter in HVAC system, plus office room has separate Dyson air filter. Great if you're one person just wanting to get away from your neighborhood for a day of work in peace, a small team who needs an in person couple-day workshop session, or even a weekend executive retreat for up to 16. Electric Vehicle charging is available for up to two vehicles.

display Monitor
This space does not normally have a monitor/keyboard/mouse/dock; but by special advance request, some special devices are available - a classic early '00s high-end CRT with VGA connection, an early Silicon Graphics flat panel display… ...or even a classic computer if you want to work in retro-style. Options include: Apple II, "compact Macintosh," Windows 3.1 PC to a Windows 2000 PC, up to an "iLamp" iMac G4. All have internet access (yes, even the Apple II) although the usefulness of the internet on most of these machines is…. lackluster. It's on you to figure out how to get data to/from the machine, although for machines new enough to have a 3.5" floppy drive, a USB 3.5" floppy drive with blank floppy disk will be available for you to connect to your modern laptop. (Yes, Microsoft Word 5.1 running on a Macintosh SE/30 will output a document that modern Microsoft Word/Google Docs will read just fine.)
