    I think you really have to make it a messiest workbench contest. That’s really the true mark of productivity, don’t you think?

    Here’s an interesting variation: Garages in Baltic Russia. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/pop_ups/06/business_murmansk0s_gorgeous_garages/html/1.stm
    [These are in Murmansk (Мýрманск), per Wikipedia: “a city in the extreme northwest of Russia with a seaport on the Kola Bay, 12km from the Barents Sea on the northern shore of the Kola Peninsula, not far from Russia’s borders with Norway and Finland.”] Looks chilly, but the approach is oddly familiar.
