Cabin Office Considerations

Is working from your getaway right for you?
By Jeff Wozer

There’s good reason why you don’t find general stores in cabin country advertising night crawlers, ice-cold beer and inkjet printers. Transitioning from a corporate cubicle with whiteboards to a cabin office with antler accessories is not for everyone. Like shucking a Chesapeake oyster, it’s harder than you think.
    In the mind it’s a slam-dunk. And why not? Soothing visions of conducting business from a cabin window overlooking a dew-covered meadow thick with wild raspberry patches, while songbirds chorus from the surrounding hardwood forest, seem idyllic; the ultimate work setting, even for Type-A personalities. But in truth, it’s a difficult leap, laden with unexpected challenges.
