A home office or study is no longer a luxury but a necessity. The events of 2020 have acted as more of an accelerant than anything else. For years the trend of remote working has been gaining speed. The last 9 months of 2020 has accelerated that trend by 9 years. Currently 60% of the jobs that pay $100,000 or more can be done remotely.
This change to remote work is a structural one, not a temporary fad. As more and more companies realize they can save money while continuing to be profitable and efficient, they will be reluctant to return to the old way of doing things. This new normal will require all new homes to have a dedicated home office or study.
Converting a bedroom into an office or study is not always an option or even the best way of doing things. A proper home office is designed to give you the space and the privacy you need to be productive. While home features like an outdoor fireplace or a media room are very desirable, they do not address your career needs. This expansive collection of house plans that feature a home office or study is sure to have a plan that is just right for you.
