Choosing a New Home with an Eye toward Working Remotely

As we all know, COVID-19 very quickly turned the “trend” of working remotely into the “new norm.” This sudden change-over in the business world was tantamount to baptism by fire. But companies are working out the kinks. They see this as an opportunity to change their way of working sustainably and to reap benefits financially. Financial gains come from less office space, fewer business trips, and less time lost to sick leave. Also, a large-scale remote working model can give companies more flexibility in dealing with unexpected events.

That’s all good for the business owners, but what about the employees. Now they have to think about how they can harmoniously live and work at home. This is becoming a new consideration when buying a home.


Which Mallard Homes Floor Plan is Best for Working from Home?

We’re glad you asked! And the answer is—the Wilson floor plan. The Wilson has five bedrooms, a den/office, and a bonus room. The master suite, second bedroom, and den/office are on the first floor. Three more bedroom and a bonus room are upstairs.

The Wilson floor plan would work for many different scenarios. Here’s just one scenario. If there are two people in the family who work remotely, they could each have a first-floor office. One could use the den/office and the other one could use the second bedroom. These rooms are conveniently located beside each other off the main entry hall. And remember that the master suite is on the first floor. This would leave the three upstairs bedrooms for other family members. And if any of those family members were schooling remotely, they could use the bonus room on that floor.
