If you are looking to create a designated home office and you don’t have a spare bedroom or dining room, then building a garden office is probably your most cost effective way of gaining extra space..
When you compare the cost of a garden office with other types of extension, such as a loft conversion or traditional extension you can gain much more space and features for your money.
Not only do garden offices workout cheaper but they are also much quicker to create, there is less red tape involved and it is a much less invasive form of building than either a loft conversion or traditional extension, meaning there is little if any disruption to your living whilst it is being built.
Designed for your round use
Modern garden offices are designed for year round use. If you buy a quality building you can reasonably expect to be able to work in it every day of the year – no matter how hot or cold it gets.
Although often referred to as posh sheds, a modern garden office is built like a house and many suppliers try to exceed the insulation values set out for new housing, meaning garden offices are a comfortable place on both the hottest and coldest days of the year.
Although some suppliers state that their rooms don’t require any source of heating because they are so well insulated, it is always a good backup for the coldest days of the year in our personal experience.
Like cars there are different marques of garden office
Just as when buying a car you know there are Fiats and Ferrari’s and everything in-between, there are different marques of garden office on the market.
There are basic models with all of the essential elements, but perhaps lacking a little styling of the more expensive designs.
There are racy little numbers which are full of features but with little room to grow.
The classic designs which have stood the test of time appearance wise, but don’t include the latest features or performance.
The middle of the road family models which combine popular features with room to grow.
And then there are the high spec, cutting edge designs that only a few can afford!
