The Things We Learned About Working From Home

By Paul Bielinski, CEO & VP

If you could go back in time and give yourself some tips about working from home, what would you tell yourself? Well after well over a year of experience, here are the things that I’ve learned about making remote work work.


A dedicated working space is key to staying productive at home. Whether that’s a home office, a repurposed guest bedroom, or wherever. It helps give you a routine and keeps your work life from invading your home life (or vice versa). By creating a dedicated workspace, you’ll be able to focus on work without distraction when you need to, and get back to home life when you don’t.


It sounds superficial, but after countless video calls I have learned that lighting matters. Making sure you’re well lit not only helps you feel confident, but also will help you to communicate better. I have natural lighting near my workspace, but I also went out and purchased a small lamp to help illuminate the space when I’m on a call.


In the office, I have an office chair. Something that is made to be sat on for extended periods of time. At home, I had a really great-looking chair. But holy moly was it uncomfortable. In that chair’s defense, we bought it thinking it would be used every once in a while to send an email or hop online. But it was not cut out for a whole day’s worth of work. So I replaced it. And I actually replaced the replacement, too. Because making sure you're comfortable isn’t only good for your work, it’s good for your health. A comfortable chair is a must-have when working remotely.

Even with offices opening up and in-person recommencing (yay!), we’ve all learned that remote work is going to be around for a long time.

So if you’re looking for a home to accommodate your remote lifestyle, talk to a New Home Consultant today.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
