The Garden Office Guide is based in Salisbury, Wiltshire and whilst we work at the end of the garden many of our friends and neighbours commute from Salisbury to London each working day.
We were chatting with one such commuter about this and they were saying how they spend £5,092 a year on their season ticket and a staggering 4 hours a day commuting to and fro.
We jokingly suggested that they swap their season and commute for a garden office!
Seriously though, a garden office has become a real alternative for workers who were once tied to a daily commute.
With the development of high speed internet connections and tools that enable remote working, a dedicated garden office space is becoming the go to solution for people working from home.
A garden office would pay for itself in just over a year
It is actually possible to swap the cost of a train season ticket for a garden office.
There are a couple of garden office designs that come in at the £5,000 mark. If you increase your budget by another £1,000 to £2,000 you have quite a lot of choice of small garden office designs.
So, if you invested your season ticket money into a garden office, it would have paid for itself in just a year to eighteen months.
Just think that after you have paid for the building how much money you would save going forward. In addition the average commute to a garden office is just 2 minutes. Compare this to the 4 hours a day our neighbours endure and its a no brainer! Imagine what you could do with all those extra hours in your week.
