My Home Office Built for Productivity

I converted my garage into a home studio optimized for efficiency

Last year I converted my garage into an office / studio – and have optimized this set up for productivity and efficiency.

Here’s a video tour of the space and my commentary on how it improves my workflow:

My brother-in-law and his friend Lake helped me with the build. It took around a month and cost about $10K.

Here is my PC setup – which I rarely use now as I have almost no time for gaming – and I’ve switched to the Mac setup for video editing and content creation.

Below I list all of the equipment that I use.
