Most people think of attics as a place to stash boxes of Christmas ornaments and dusty boxes of mementos. Follow the example of today’s featured workspace, and the attic becomes a place for 8-core workstations and Rock Band sessions.
If we had to guess how Lifehacker reader edgefactor627 came about the idea of having such a pile of goodies in his attic, we’d have to go with him having a strong desire to serve as a beacon of fun for the whole neighbourhood, drawn to the signal of condensed awesomeness in the highest room in his house.
No matter what the motivation, the end result is a workspace that has plenty of personality—tartan carpet anyone?—and lots of space for work and play. On one end of the room is a MacPro 2009 with 8 cores, hooked up to dual 24″ displays and a Wacom Intuos tablet. On the other end of the room is a couch, 1080 HDTV with surround sound, and a Rock Band station complete with drum set. Check out the link to his Flickr set for additional photo notes.
