Building Functional Work Spaces Into the Design of a New Home To Meet the Demands of the COVID Era
Over the past fifteen months, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way we live life.
More than anything, it’s changed how we use our home.
Prior to its arrival, we spent less time there.
We went to work, came home for dinner (if we had time), took the kids to their activities, and then returned home to get a good sleep so we could do it all over again the next day.
That all changed with the advent of Code Red health orders.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, many parents have worked from home while kids have had to do schoolwork remotely.
Never before have we spent so much time at home.
With no dedicated workspaces spread throughout a home, families have been jammed together as they’ve desperately tried to work and learn from home at the same time.
That has only added to an already-high stress level.
At last, here’s some good news.
With their computer-assisted design (CAD) programs, builders can build you a home that’s tailored to your family’s new COVID-driven needs.
That means functional and well-separated workspaces can now be effortlessly built into the design of a home.
What does that entail?
Well, it’s all about your family’s unique needs.
Want a main floor office space?
We can build it in a convenient spot off the foyer next to a powder room that allows it to be used as a private office that can be equipped to do company work from home or function as an office for a home-based business.
In future, it could also be used as an in-law suite or extra bedroom.
Then, to create separation, a second-floor loft could be used as a study/computer space for the kids – with space left over for a TV and sofa so it could also serve as their own private media area.
A mezzanine-level office could be placed between the main floor and second floor to accommodate an office area, and a designated office area could even be created downstairs.
That’s the beauty of buying a custom-built home.
With the knowledge that you and your family will be spending more time at home in the future, you can have those key workspaces – and separation – incorporated into the design of your new home.
A home that works for you in every way, providing the functionality you require in the COVID era, and well into the future.
