I am at work 10 hours a day. I am in the garage about 3 hours a day. Bathroom about 1 (most of that time I'm in hot soak). That leaves 10 hours per day left. We spend about 6-7 hours of that asleep. That leaves only 3 or 4 hours of being in the doghouse, of which I am perpetually in. It'* actually more comfortable than my own house.
