Work-at-home Design

How about a community designed to support work-at-home jobs? In most cases all you need is a room with its own separate entrance, some common parking, and a restroom. Some folks might use it as an in-law unit. Some might rent out the room. Some might work as hair stylists, parole officers, masseuses, or any other job that has low foot-traffic and requires a small room.

This arrangement might add 20% to the cost of a small, affordable home while providing a permanent income source for some, and solving some childcare issues for jobs that can stand some interruption.
