First off, great article :)
I’ve been doing home office for like 1.5 years and I have to tell it wasn’t easy in the beginning.
The distraction part is like where I felt you. :D when my partner is home I just can’t focus properly so I’m popping the headphones but the presence still somewhat ‘bothers’ me - might not be the best description.
Anyway, what I did is that we kinda share the day so while she’s off I’m doing the major parts of my work and then when she comes home I’m just doing the easy parts or learning something.
