I think it would be of value to get people's estimates out there. What would you say is the productivity when working at home versus at a dedicated work setting? (For data: my home is in a suburb. There are 0..2 infants/ toddlers present and 1..3 other adults present. We have a nice back yard. There is not TOO much noise pollution, or air pollution. The weather is good.) I say my productivity is 30% to 40% for not too hard work: for example, reading a textbook where the brain must look up the words. For the highest quality work, which is like a teetering stack of concepts that grows, and where an interr uption to working memory can cause the whole thing to topple, the productivity is 0%.
