    Unless you have someone(paid employee) working the book keeping part, then no you dont need an office at all. But if you wanna get one then get one

    Having an office in your home , which can be what you want it to be . Is a write off for you . Talk with a tax person . You want every break you can get. Good Luck with your new enterprise.
