Before: Cluttered Shared Space
Tracy and Brian McEvoy share a large upstairs room in their home as an office for each of their businesses. He owns a contracting business, and she owns a business selling home accessories.
While there is plenty of space, the abundance of clutter in the room makes it hard for them to get any work done.
His blueprints and files for his contracting business are scattered everywhere, while boxes of her home-decor products consume huge amounts of space. Toys are scattered among the boxes, and built-in bookcases are underused.
Both desks are a wasteland of unfiled papers, and Tracy shares a desk with Brian's bookkeeper. This tilting, disorganized desk and chair are shared by two people and a cat. The only thing easy to find in this setup is the pet hairs that cover the seat.
Boxes of products for Tracy's home-decor business take up a huge amount of space. Plus, those boxes have to share space with the toys!
Professional organizer Vicki Norris has a plan to make the space colorful and functional. Tracy and Brian will each get their own work area, separate from each other.
