SSHFS is a useful way of mounting a folder of a remote Linux/Unix server over SSH on your local machine.
To start you will need to install sshfs
sudo apt-get install sshfs
You need to add your user account to the fuse group. After doing this you will need to logout and the login again.
sudo gpasswd -a youruser fuse
Now create a folder to be used for mounting the remote folder
Now you can mount the remote server’s folder in the newly created sshfs folder
sshfs -o idmap=user server.domain.com:~ ~/sshfs/
You can now read and write from your local ~/sshfs folder the home drive on your remote server.
When you have finished, you can dismount using the following command
fusermount -u ~/sshfs
