Working From Home These Days?

Do you find yourself working at home lately? Are you frustrated that your house doesn’t seem to support a productive environment? It’s no secret, times are a little bit unusual these days due to the coronavirus outbreak. This illness has been devastating for so many families and businesses. Now more than ever, people are having to work from home. Unsurprisingly, there are several obstacles that occur when you’re juggling working from the couch. From entertaining children, to keeping up with housework and even general time-management, working from home can bring an array of problems for people who are unfamiliar with it. Believe it or not, a designated work space, such as a home office, can make all the difference! In this blog post, we’re sharing a few of our floor plans that have an office! It’s amazing how much more productive you can be with four walls and a door separating you from the rest of the house.

The Manchester – 2 Story – Starting At $334,900*

If you want an office space right by the front door, the Manchester floor plan is for you! It’s great to have an office right near the entry of the home, especially if you routinely have clients visiting. This way, you don’t have to introduce a client to the rest of the living space. The double barn doors easily separate the work area from the living space, and are a beautiful touch to the home! This floor plan also has a fabulous kitchen, a massive walk-in pantry and a prep kitchen (butler’s pantry). Upstairs you’ll find four bedrooms and the laundry room. The master bedroom has double vanities, a soaking tub and a gorgeous glass door shower! It’s safe to say that this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home has it all! Click here for floor plan details. 

The Lincoln – 2 Story – Starting At $289,750*

The Lincoln floor plan offers an office space on the second floor. This of course could be used alternatively as a bedroom, but definitely could serve as a great office! The main floor of the home is a fan favorite. Upon entering the foyer, you’ll notice a flex space, an open-concept living room with a fireplace, a dining area and a kitchen with tons of storage! Not to mention, this floor plan can be built with a large covered deck area. How great would it be to work outside with a cup of coffee under a relaxing outdoor area? The 2320 swift home has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and an optional 3-car garage. Click here for floor plan details.
