Home working at No 10

Behind the black door – home working in Downing Street

Home working at No 10I enjoy seeing where other home workers work, as you can tell from the Home Office Galleries, and I know you do too, as finding out how other home workers get organised was one of the main reasons for visiting this site given by the participants in my home working survey.

I’m also curious about high profile home workers such as the Prime Minister and the Queen – No 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace may be on a different scale to the average home worker’s residence, but that’s what they both are.

This virtual tour of No 10, shows what’s behind that famous black door. Since there’s only one Prime Minister, maybe I should ask for an interview as part of the Unusual Home Working Jobs series?

I seem to remember that the Camerons moved into No 11 because they felt it was more suitable for their family, but the two houses are apparently connected. The Study looks like the most likely place for David Cameron to go for some peace and quiet, but there’s no desk in the photo. Maybe he perches with his laptop on his knee and a mug of coffee on the carpet?

    Really good point, actually. Something to think about. What if, when you finished your job, you had to find a new place to live?

      That is an interesting thought, Kaitlyn. No 10 is actually just a home worker’s tied cottage when you think about it!
