A Tiny Workspace With Idyllic Forest Views

The only thing that this office has in common with your average work office is the roof, floor and walls. Aside from those elements this work space is one of the most unique you’ll probably come across.


The office features glass windows on three sides, with a cantilevered deck that overlooks the densely forested shores of Chuckanut Bay – the kind of view that most of us can only dream of having while doing our daily 9-5 grind.


Peter Frazier, the owner of this awesome space, decided to make a radical change to his work space when he noticed how it was affecting his health and lifestyle:


“Like many in the computer industry, I graduated from college thin and fit, but since then, through years of all-nighters, sitting in front of my screen for long hours, and a rich diet I became overweight. I went from 190 to 242 pounds as I grew into each role: graphic designer, user interface designer, customer experience researcher, businessperson, husband, father, and community member. Last Fall I said, ‘Enough already!’…

…Recently I decided that working standing up would help me live a more active life. It’s worked. Along with meditating, running, hiking, and kayaking, working standing up (with hourly interludes of pushups, situps or yoga) I’ve dropped 30 pounds. My thinking is clearer for longer and you’re more likely to find me with things in perspective…

I’m fortunate enough to work at home above Chuckanut Bay in Bellingham, Washington.¬†This stand up desk is a piece of cedar with its live edge intact. On it I have room for a Dell 24″ monitor as well as my MacBook Pro, and my good old Monsoon sound system. The hard drive holds the documentary I am working on called ‘Stumblebum’.”
