I found telecommuting part-time worked perfectly for me. I too, feared
being distracted by my own home projects, but that isn't how it
happened. I "scheduled" my work hours at home and stuck to it.

My work area for "job work" was separate from my personal project area.
At worse, if I felt a chore had to be done before I could work, I'd do
the chore and work a little late to get work-work done. I found I was
very productive at home.

I live alone though, so I didn't have friends or family bugging me, and
my friends didn't know which hours I was telecommuting so they didn't
expect me to go help with errands or hang out for "fun stuff".

At the office, I prominently posted my telecommuting schedule so there
would be no question of where I was or how to get in touch with me.
