Confession time: have you been working from your kitchen table during the COVID-19 pandemic? Or, worse, your couch or bed? If the pandemic has turned your home into a default “home office,” it might be time to make a serious decision. Should you transform your home into a true home office, or keep propping old books on the coffee table? The expert team at Architecture 915 weighs in.
Step One: Design.
The first step in our process is to design with the client. When you’re considering upgrading to a real home office, take a moment to consider the design. Do you have a dedicated room that you need to remodel, or will you be creating space from something else? We have seen amazing little home offices built onto the end of existing rooms, in unused storage spaces, added onto the side of the home, and all over the place—just consider where you want to put it! You can share your ideas however you’d like, but many people enjoy viewing online photos and sharing their favorite ones for inspiration.
Step Two: Plan and Build
This is really a step for your architecture team, but you’ll be heavily involved in the planning. Once you’ve decided on an upgrade, and have some ideas in mind, your architecture team will help you plan the next steps. This can involve everything from drawing up designs, using computer-aided design tools, petitioning your city or zoning board, or submitting proposals.
Once the plans with the officials have been made, someone will also need to plan for the materials and the contractors to build the situation of your dreams. If you’re working with Architecture 915, you can sit back and enjoy most of this process—we handle most of it for you! Finally, we get those contractors on a schedule and have them make those plans real—of course, you would be involved, but the professionals do the heavy lifting.
Step Three: Enjoy
Back to your work—the job is done! When you work with Architecture 915, we promise to choose high-quality contractors who will make your vision a reality without leaving a mess. If you’ve added a home office to your property, you can go in, set up your computer, and get to work.
