If you run your own business from home then you’ll know the importance of a successful working environment. It’s all about having a space where you feel creative and can switch into ‘work mode’.
One of the pitfalls of orchestrating a company in the same space that you live is that lines can become blurred. Studies show it is imperative to have boundaries, whether it is a desk in the corner of the room, your own study or, even better, a specific part of the house.
This is what we helped to create with Chase View, where an extension formed part of a significant remodelling of the whole property to allow the client to expand the business she runs at home. The oak framed extension offers a place to escape to after work.
We have seen a huge trend for people wanting to incorporate office space into their new builds or extensions. The original plan for the Great Elm project was to create an office and tack room for the livery business on this farm, but the success of the build meant it has now been converted into a holiday let and bed and breakfast. And the huge oak frame of Phoenix House in Yeovil utilised extra space for a swimming pool, gym, and a separate wing for a large weather-boarded workshop.
So whether looking for private office space to make your own, or wanting to provide a professional reception area for clients, then we can help make your business grow from home!
