'... my morning commute is about 15 steps ...'

yeah I'm in this situ. I'm saving up for my roald dahl inspired coding shed for those morning and afternoon sessions to code in piece and quiet.

    ... Dahl's process was obviously very isolated, very banal. Perhaps this sparsity was the real inspiration, forcing him towards his imagination and his memory. Dahl himself emphasised the importance of his hours in his shed ...

There's a good article about his writing process. I can see the similiarity to coding.

When I informed my young ones of this they started howling about cubby houses are for kids, not adults.

    :-) I actually started my business in an 8ft. x 12ft. mini-barn that I built as an office. It was a great little space, fully insulated/drywalled, windowless and quiet, and great for maintaining the isolation required for complete concentration.

    It was right next to my organic garden, and during the hatch the dragonflies used it as a sanctuary to avoid being eaten on their first night in the world. Every morning during the hatch I'd be greeted by a squadron of the little guys heading out to the garden as soon as the door was opened.
