    Your ideas have merit.

    However, the part of the house used for the business must be used exclusively for the business. In other word, you cannot use your kitchen or dining room table. A separate room is best. Also, assuming you will use a computer for bookkeeping and such, make sure you have a second computer for your personal use IF the business computer is in the business area. If you use your business computer in your business-part of the home for personal use, you then completely invalidate the Home Office Deduction.

    Good luck on your business!
