Welcome to the Blodgett Haus Office Community! Here, we’ve created an office environment where individuals and small businesses thrive.

The Blodgett Haus Freebies Save You Time and Money

This is it. The big one! I’ve got an idea that will absolutely change the world. Just gotta write it down . . . Oh darn, pen’s out of ink. Office supply store, here I come. Back now. Shoot . . . what was that idea again?

Saving money by having supplies on hand at no extra charge is nice, but saving time and staying focused may benefit your business even more!

BLODGETT MEMBERS ENJOY:

FREE Printing. Each month, your membership includes up to 50 pages of color and up to 500 black-and-white prints from our business-quality printers. This includes free paper and free ink! (Additional prints are available for an extra cost.)

FREE Coffee. Our fully stocked coffee bar features several nice blends of coffee, a huge variety of teas, cream, sugar, honey and more!

FREE Internet Connection. Connect to the Internet with the convenience of Wi-Fi or with the speed of a hard-wired Ethernet connection, included in every office.

FREE Use of a Desk. No need to drag in that heavy awkward desk! Each office space comes equipped with a luxurious desk made of real, solid, stained wood—not pressboard!

FREE Use of Conference Rooms. Need a more private area to meet with clients? Feel free to reserve one of several conference rooms, including the upstairs Board Room, which is one of the nicest conference rooms in all of Marshfield!

FREE Use of the Diner. The break room, affectionately called “The Diner” because of its 1950’s malt shop design, comes fully equipped with silverware, dishes, microwaves, refrigerator, dishwasher, and cable TV. It also has great counter space for office party “pot lucks!”

Boost Professionalism, Productivity, Efficiency . . . and Fun!

Shared office space or “Coworking” was first developed in larger cities where space is scarce and rent costs are prohibitive. However, the concept quickly grew in popularity because of the exciting and productive work environments these spaces created. Now, more and more shared office spaces are becoming available in smaller towns.

THE BLODGETT HAUS OFFICE COMMUNITY ALLOWS YOU TO:

  1. Make a Good Impression in a Professional Setting

Does your industry, client base, or sanity require working in a professional-looking office? A shared office space offers a professional alternative to meeting with clients at home or in coffee shops.

  1. Avoid the Commitment of a Long-term Lease

Does committing to a long-term lease scare you? What if you need more space in the future? Less space? Different space? The Blodgett Haus Office Community provides the space you need now— with the flexibility to move, expand, or downsize if your needs ever change.

  1. Save Money

Like many small business owners, are you on a tight budget? Renting a private office can be expensive. In addition to rent, you have the cost of furnishing the office, buying office equipment, paying utility bills, cleaning the space, and paying contractors to address any necessary building maintenance. With Blodgett Haus, everything is included for one low monthly rate.

  1. Improve Time Management

Does your work-at-home environment leave you distracted by kids, pets, neighbors, delivery drivers, televisions, kitchens, and your “to-do” list? Many professionals transition to shared office space to keep these distractions from turning eight-hour workdays into twelve- or fourteenhour workdays.

  1. Find More Clients Through Frequent Networking Opportunitie

Are you looking to increase your client base? As neighbors in a shared office environment collaborate, network, and exchange ideas, they often refer clients to each other as well. Even your fellow Blodgett Haus members are potential new clients!

  1. Enjoy More Social Interaction

Does working at home or in a solo office space make you lonely? Imagine the water-cooler conversations you could have with other small-business professionals who understand the challenges you face every day.

  1. Reduce Stress

When you work at home, is it hard to turn off the computer, relax, and focus on your family? Some work at-home professionals feel guilty if they aren’t working all the time. It’s much easier to leave work at the office when you actually have an office to leave!

  1. Focus on Your Business—Not Maintaining a Building

How many precious workdays have you lost because you were cleaning your office, calling the plumber, or otherwise working on non-productive building management tasks? In a shared office environment, you can stay focused on what you do best—and leave the building maintenance to someone else!

There’s no doubt: A shared office space can help you boost professionalism, productivity, efficiency, and most importantly, fun!
