How to mount remote volume on desktop?

Right now the only way to access my office Mac is by Transmit which works pretty well for downloading files. Is there a way to actually mount it on my home desktop?

Yes, there are plenty of ways.

Is it a good idea?
Probably not.

If you only want to download the files, you can mount it as an FTP volume in the finder. From the finder, go to Go-->Connect to Server (or just click cmd-K). Then type: [your_machine's_ip_address]. If you have ftp access on your computer at work, it will mount right up for read-only access.

My office machine is behind a firewall that I use SFTP to get to. I don't tink command-k works in this situation.

You need to learn about tunneling.
