My Dream Office Challenge - MrTerminator

Hi everyone
Guess it's never too late to jump in.
After reading the challenge title lots of ideas immediately came into my mind. The one i was most excited about is an "office" in the jungle, hanging in the trees. The scene will take place somewhere in the middle of the 19th century and will be the office of a british adventurer searching new species of animals in the jungle.
So here is some basic modeling i've done today.

Yes, it's indeed tiny Just enough space for a table, chair and some equipment. Perspective is not final. I'll choose one when everything is finished.

Here's the first furniture:
a bamboo/wood/jungle-stuff chair and a rattan-like table
Oh, and a carpet made of banana leafs

Got all the room you need, desk chair and enough room for some beer storage. What more do you need

Hehe, thanks for the comments
Genny, i might think about that, if you put the cupcakes in your scene.

@Dave: I think some bottles of rum and wine would be more likely

Anyway, here's the last update for today.

Update for today:
-extended the floor to the back to place a hammock over it
-added a second tree and applied some ropes to it
-made two barrels

Nothing is placed perfectly right now. Everything will be fine tuned later. I'm just continiously putting everything roughly together in my scene.

Thanks guys.
Not the time for lightning yet, The main contruction is as good as finished now. My next step will be filling the desk and the rest of the "office". Can't decide yet whether i should start texturing after that or first create an environment. But I'll probably go for the texturing.
So here's the almost finished construction: (renders and screenshots were not made at the same time )

edit: And during the texturing process I'll also take the trees through zbrush...
