Home Office

A Home Office that Doubles as a Guest Room

The Pierces often work from home, so Gillian had turned a spare bedroom upstairs into her office, while Bill's desk sat in the living room. "Not an ideal spot for getting work done," he says. So Bill moved his desk into Gillian's old office, allowing her to take over this new, light-filled corner room above the family room, right off the library nook. "I feel like I'm in a cocoon when I'm in here. It's so peaceful and quiet," she says. (That's partly due to the soundproofing qualities of the addition's spray-foam insulation.) Guests can sleep on the pull-out sofa, and a closet (not seen) makes the space flexible for conversion to a bedroom in the future.
