Marlborough lawyer David Dew relaxes outside his new offices on Richmond St, Blenheim.
Law firm Dew & Company started work in the bungalow on the corner of Richmond and Charles streets near central Blenheim on Monday.
Mr Dew said the lease on his old offices in Henry St was to expire next week and it was a good time for a change.
He considered moving into offices in central Blenheim but could not find the right spot.
The rent being asked by most landlords was too high given the economic climate, he said.
Mr Dew said he bought the bungalow instead because it suited the firm's needs for a larger interview area as well as having better car parking.
