The closet office 衣帽间办公室
The desk in Jessica Fleming's home in Minnesota is in an open area -- not an ideal space for virtual meetings when you have kids in the house.

"I love being outside so this gives me flexibility to get some fresh air," he writes.
Working remotely for the foreseeable future is going to be challenging. But clearly, we're all doing our best.
