consider an
away-from-home
home office

Some find it hard to escape the
noises and distractions working
from home can bring, but do
not have the money or time to

escape to a rentable space in
town. The next best thing to
consider is the purchase of a shed
or building an away-from-home
home office. This home office
can be a space on the other side
of your backyard. The space
doesn’t have to be huge but make
sure it accommodates the work
you do. If you are a writer or

someone that just needs a laptop
and desk space or someone that
may need a big bigger space for
photography, then consider what
you do and make your home
office work for you.
The space can become a selling
point for buyers and something
you can market later in life if you
consider selling your home.

Give yourseLf
some space

Whether you’re building or
renovating a room to become a
home office, you should consider
spacing and how much you’ll
need to work comfortably.
Before tearing into the space,
consider creating a 3D floor plan
to give yourself a good idea of
what you will have room in your
home for. Creating a 3D plan can
help you create a list of amenities
you want in your home office and
can help you cover all your bases.
There are a number of websites
online that can help you create a
floor plan for your office.
