Having a custom home built can be a huge undertaking, even if you’re not the one building it. There’s usually a large budget involved and you have to make a lot of decisions that will stick around in the long-term. Our team at Heidan Construction completely understands. We build custom homes for people all the time and we have a deep understanding of how stressful this process can be. The difficulty is even higher when building custom homes for professionals that work from home. Here’s why.
Base of Operations
As someone who works from home, your home becomes more than just a home. It’s your entire base of operations. You wake up there, you eat there, you sleep there, and you make your living there. Because your home is also the source for your income, its design and quality is of huge importance. After all, even one moving part in the function of your home office or studio can put a halt to your entire work process.
Getting What You Need
At Heidan Construction, we find it to be of utmost importance to give our clients exactly what they want and need. That can mean any number of things – even those things that are seen as vanity choices.
Do you want floor to ceiling windows in your studio to get the best lighting? We can make it happen. Do you want skylights to let in the best of the midday sun? We can do that too. Everything about your home work space should be exactly what you need. From flooring to paint colors, windows to light fixtures – even the shape of your door can be customized. Don’t settle for a cookie-cutter office that’s made to accomplish the bare minimum. Create a work space that’s meant to make you excel.
If you’re currently working from a home office you’re unhappy with, you’ve certainly noticed you’re lacking some things. Your new, custom home is the perfect opportunity to start over and get what you need.
Consider built-in shelving. Shelving that’s built into the walls offers a stable and expansive place to store and display anything from books to photos. Built-in shelving also looks phenomenal behind a desk.
While home offices are usually pretty straightforward, home studios require a lot more. If you’re an artist, your studio has a lot of specific needs. For one thing, having a counter and a large, basin sink for cleaning up paints, dyes, and other messes is a must-have. Being able to wash paintbrushes or rinse off palettes and then have an easy place to set them to dry makes working much easier.
Inspire yourself every day by choosing floor to ceiling windows for one wall of your studio. Being able to see into the great outdoors while working can really get the creative juices flowing. Take it one step further and let us build you a deck outside your studio. Picture a wall of windows with sliding, glass doors that lead onto a cozy deck. This is the perfect place to take an easel and work in the summertime. You can even fill your deck with greenery if you have a passion for plants.
