We have a two bedroom townhouse and the second bedroom serves two purposes: a) we have a clothes drying rack for our laundry and b) it serves as a shared office. I work from home 1-2 times a week, am working on my MS online, and Fiance is working on finishing his BS online. For us it makes sense. 


Scott sounds like a real peach and she probably should refrain from signing that lease

I guess he needs his own office to watch some porn

I understand the need for some private space, but it sounds like Scott already has that in the garage. What is to stop him from setting up a desk and computer in there? It sounds like Scott can use the garage for his hobbies and Jane can use spare room for hers.

Our place has an office. Our place is not big (we don’t have a garage!) so we have to share. We have books, a desk/computer and a piano in there. I would not want craft stuff all over the living room – Scott should be more reasonable about the space!

Scott is a man child.

Jane needs to realize that she’s dating a man with the maturity level of a kindergartener. 

Jane should grow a pair of balls and dump Scott. 

Scott should go finish school and get a real job to go along with his home office.

I dont know how any of your garages look, but my garage is not any sort of space to be lived in or spend time in.  It’s messy, dirty, it’s for cars, yard work crap, and what not.  It’s full of bugs, chemicals, potting soil, scrap wood.  I consider it a good size with room for our riding mower, snow blower, generator, and more.  Unless the garage HUGE though, I just kind of fail to see how it can be any sort of personal useable living space, even if it’s just a corner.  So saying he’s gets the garage space to make his own just doesn’t really count imo.  Even if I said, I’ll park outside, make the garage your man cave, my husband would laugh me outta the house.

However, with that being said.  Scott is still being an ass for wanting to claim a space for no particular reason other than cause his dad had one when Jane actually needs it.  If he can say put her stuff in the living room, tell him to put his shit in the living room and use that as his “personal” space.  With only TWO people in the house, personal space is basically anywhere the other person isnt imo.   He should be comfortable anywhere in the house.

pinkshoes :  I kind of agree with you. I’m from the US. And only half of the garages I’ve been around there in my 32 years of life could be made into a man cave – and that’s only after thousands of dollars worth of money put into renovating. If they’re just renting and not buying, I don’t understand how they could convert a garage into a usable space for him either! 

I’m now in the UK for work (have been for a year) and had to do tons of house hunting before settling on a place. I can comfortably say out of over two dozen homes we looked at, NONE of the garages could here would qualify for a usable living space. Could just be my area.. but still..

All that said, I agree she deserves the office more. At the very least they can split it. Wth…

I know someone who had a home office.  That was where he did his “executive”drinking, which eventually killed him.

I mean, this just seems like a slam on home offices, as a general matter. I have a home office. I also work from home 15-20 hours a week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This dude’s demand is dumb because he doesn’t need an office, while she does. Not because home offices are stupid.
