The Washington Post ran an interesting story on the growth of home offices. Michael Gibbs is an illustrator and his wife, Hope Katz Gibbs, owns a public relations firm. They both work from home. So when they went looking for a new house their number one priority was a flexible interior that could accommodate two home offices. The answer to their dreams? An open plan ranch house in Arlington that they can divide up easily. The Gibbs’ are not unusual – 2.5 million workers in America say their home is their primary workplace (American Time Use Survey).
