Home-office / home-based office

Unread post by brunobsl » Fri Oct 16, 2015 1:26 pm


This is my first time here, so please, be gentle haha

Anyway, the title kind of says it all, but I'd like some perspective.

Is there any difference in using the expression "home-office" or "home-based office"?
To my most humble understanding (I have researched but found no definite answers), if there were such a difference, I'd say:
Home-office would be an extension to your regular office. WHEREAS
Home-based office, would be the main office itself, but it is located in your house.
Or is it the other way around? Or, simply do it as you like it?

Thanks in advance for the feedback,

Hello, I would personally go with home-based office. It's less confusing, more precise than home-office.
