A friend of mine works full time from home. She started doing that after she developed severe vertigo and had to quit her regular day job, since she was unable to drive.

She's naturally distractable, so she's found the following set up works best for her:

1. A separate home office. If you have a spare bedroom, that is your office. The work computer is separate from the play computer and has no games on it.
2. A task scheduled or nanny monitor like Strict Pomodoro to prevent idle web surfing.
3. Lunch break at the same time as everyone who is in the physical office. Turn off the phones and emails during lunch.
4. Monitor hours put in to avoid going under or over 40 by more than a few minutes.

The only thing separating my laptop from my home PC and all its non work-related fun is a KVM switch and 6ft to my left is my 55" and PS3.

Yeah I'll be multitasking :P

Seriously, the days I work from home now the only thing I have on is CNN, there is never freetime. Honestly the biggest caveat to working at home is not having to hold in my farts.
