It could be argued that a 6-person Drupal web development firm may not need a nice office; or any office for that matter. A year ago I would have agreed. We launched some really amazing web sites at our individual home offices or over coffee at the local cafe; for an average daily rent of $3.00 (not a bad deal!). But as both our client list and team grew, it became apparent that having a home base was a must. Not just for the space, the new desks, or even the beer fridge — but really for the culture.
