Zen Home-Working Environment - a cool business idea

Bare-bones office with cool design

Actually what more do you need. If you have a garden where you can put this kind of office, it seems for me a perfect place to work. Lots of fresh air when you need it, because of the glass feels spacious and the design creates a very nice environment.
