When we sold our 2100 sqft house to move into our travel trailer, we realized pretty quickly that an office was in order. We can definitely get some work done in our trailer, but conference calls are more challenging and as we’ve grown, we’ve realized that having a physical location tied to a Google Plus listing is helpful for providing the impression of legitimacy. (Not that home based businesses aren’t legitimate, but there are definitely some prospective clients who take an office as a marker of seriousness and that we’re going to be there to partner with them for the long haul.) –
I spent some time watching commercial real estate and in December we were excited to find this gorgeous rennovated house turned office building. It’s a little off the beaten path, but it works perfectly for us, with a full kitchen for food prep, room for a food photography set up plus desk space for Chris, one of our local employees, and me. –
I’ve been working long days the last few weeks while Chris rocks dad mode at home with the girls. Sometimes it feels really exhausting, but it’s nice to have the option of taking a break on a rocking chair on the front porch or strolling under the trees. And on days when the girls come to the office, there’s plenty of room for them to roam and blackberries to pick. –
For our first real office, I’d say we lucked out.
