What Houzz contributors are saying:

When architect Richard Bubnowski met the couple who owned this property, he asked how they had found him. "The wife pulled out a 3-year-old magazine clipping of my own personal surf shed," he explains. Because the father and son were surfers, he'd already earned some points with them before they ever met. This is the side of the house as seen from the entry court. "The house tiers up and away from you; so from here it looks deceptively like a little one-story cottage," Bubnowski says. The first room you enter has a large surfboard closet, which sets the tone for the home. The plan moves from public to private; the last tier one would reach from here is the master suite upstairs.

Furniture. Even though you’re working from home, you’ll still need to outfit your studio with a few essentials. Try to repurpose furniture. A couple of bookcases, a desk or drafting table, and a few chairs are really all that’s necessary to get started. Cost: $400. Ikea and flea markets are your friend.Supplies. Trace, pens, pencils, paper, binders, folders, files —you’ll need some of each. A trip to a local office supply warehouse shouldn’t set you back much, especially if you already have some of the materials lying around.Cost: $100Smart phone. If you’re like me, your smart phone is a trusted companion, your tiny mobile office and office assistant. If you don’t already have one, consider getting one; I think it’s an invaluable tool for any business owner. If you do have one, keep track of your expenses and the percentage it’s used for business for tax purposes.Cost: About $300 for the phone and about $100 per month for servicePhone (landline) and Internet. Aside from being good business practice, separating your business from your personal life is critical to maintaining your own health and sanity. Having a dedicated phone line with voicemail helps to compartmentalize this critical aspect of your business. This way you can formulate the boundaries for answering or not answering on your own terms. If it’s available, you can even bundle the service with your Internet service, another obvious essential, and reap some savings.Cost: About $100 per monthSee more on setting up your studio
