Here is a small office that I built the other night. I was interested in building a computer that was like one from the early 90's, and then I just continued to build  :sweet:

Great little MOC. I love the way you designed the Computer monitor and tower.

The blinds on the window is also great.  :thumbup: :classic:

That 1x2 tile on the computer is a great fit - don't think I've ever been that happy in my office  :laugh:

Clever little build. I remember those computers so well. We were one of the first people to get a desktop computer in my area and that was mid-90s. I think it had a 28.8 modem... :hmpf:

The blinds are very cleverly built. The computer is spot-on.

Keep up the great work!

This is so great. The monitor is awesome, perfect. The other details-the blinds, his chair- brilliant! Awesome work.

I really love this creation.  If the window was on the wall opposite the computer, with a door where the window is, this would be my first computer room in the house where I grew up.  It was about this size and was about that color.  Very well done!

I really like MOCs like this where a simple and small idea is done really well.

Maybe a motivational poster could go on the wall? Also, he could have an alternative face for when he's getting to the end of the day. Do Lego do a minifig head with a bored expression and five o'clock shadow?

Ah, this takes me back... I recently threw out an old CRT monitor that was collecting dust in my attic :cry_sad: Those were the days! :cry_happy: I really love how you did that monitor, it looks spot on! Huge, and yet, so small actual screen space :laugh:

That's an enjoyable office, despite of the blue screen.  :laugh: The computer is a very realistic model of the old types, that took more than half of your desk. Other than that, the blinds are amazing as well. It's a great design and looks very 'smart'. Well done! :thumbup:

Very well done, looks just like the computer I had growing up.  How did you make the monitor?
