Many families are finding that their current humble abode just doesn’t provide enough space, and if you add a home-based business to the mix, square footage is a hot commodity. Rather than deal with the stress of having your work overflow into the living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc., consider up-sizing your home so that you and your business have room to grow.
