NEW Beaducation Headquarters....before and after

Back in April, we packed up Beaducation.com and moved it from San Carlos to a few miles down the road in Redwood City.  Our new home brought us lots of light and SPACE!  We are very excited about our new building and its great transformation.  Here is a brief tour of some of our favorite spots...

This is the main room.  When we got this building there were no floors, horrible old lights and light gray with dark gray trim paint...ewww.

Add a few windows in the walls for the offices, new lights throughout, pop up some cool and fun homemade "cubicles" and....

Voila!  Instead of boring cubicles, we built our own with curtain panels, desks and bookshelves. It only took 47 trips to Ikea to complete.  We added new paint, new carpet, new lights and a disco ball (which was my birthday present from my employees!).

Now over to the kitchen/breakroom/conference room.  Bust out the sledge hammer, remove some walls, toss down a cool new floor and slap on a fresh coat of paint and....

 Ahhh, a nice place to sit and have some lunch!!!

Welcome to my office.  Yeah, that magenta took 3 coats of paint!

This corner of my office is the relaxation spot.  Come on in and lie down under the trees anytime :)

Last but not least, let's head over to the inventory/shipping room.  This room is my favorite transformation.  We removed plumbing, electrical and a very frightening abundance of old buzzy fluorescent lights.


We still have a few more offices and of course our Shootio to show you, but you'll just have to wait for a future blog post to see those! Thanks for touring with us!

It looks very b.e.a.d.u.c.a.t.i.o.n - great job, and sooo fast.

I have one lonely room that I can't even get together!

Congratulations ~
