With more people working from home, Hollyhock’s builders are offering many types of home offices
Working from home is on the rise, with the number of Dallas residents who telecommute increasing by 40% between 2007 and 2016, according to a Brookings Institute report. Even more Dallas area workers – a whopping 76% - said they’d be more likely to accept a job offer if it included the ability to work from home, another survey found.
The growing work-from-home trend is inspiring homebuilders to offer some creative solutions, including pocket offices and new twists on the traditional study.
You can see many of these home office trends in the beautifully furnished model homes in Hollyhock.
In Britton’s Rothschild model home, the study is midway between the first and second floors, along the grand staircase. This location creates a quiet workspace, while also providing a commanding view of what’s happening on both floors.
Highland’s Plan 248 model home has a study with a built-in desk located between the family room and the master suite. This thoughtful placement offers several advantages, including letting someone working in the study stay engaged with family members in the kitchen and main living area. It also offers a quiet location with inspiring views of the backyard. An optional planning center can also be added in the vestibule leading to the master suite.
Perry’s Design 3399 model home has a study with French doors at the front of the home, another quiet and productive location.
Drees’ Marigold model home offers two home office spaces. A study is located near the front door, and a small but efficient pocket office is tucked away in the kitchen area.
Hollyhock’s builders also offer work-at-home spaces for the kids. Highland’s Plan 248 model is one of many home plans that offer an optional built-in computer area upstairs, near the kids’ bedrooms.
