This January train tickets will rise an average 23%, a staggering price hike just to get to work! Luckily with remote working becoming much easier and accepted by many employers, you have options, and a garden office is a great one.
We have just looked up to see what it would cost us to commute annually from Garden Office HQ in Salisbury to London and it’s a staggering £5,140 per year! You could buy a garden office for this amount and reduce your commute to a couple of minutes each way.
By investing in a garden office, you are creating a professional, dedicated workspace. You have all the discipline of going out of the house to work, and can easily keep office hours, but with the benefits of working from home.
Garden offices come fully wired electrically, and it is easy to incorporate telephone and internet connections so you can communicate with anywhere in the world. Over the years we have talked to garden office owners who do big business all over the world from the bottom of their garden. Their office offers them the flexibility to pop into the office when they need to take a conference call late at night with colleagues in Australia.
Several of the garden office designers we feature on this site offer buildings that cost not much more than an annual season ticket. This example by Warwick Buildings comes in at £5,000 so based on our season ticket between Salisbury & London it would pay for itself in just a year.
At least with a garden office, you have something tangible to look at for your money. Cutting the commute to a couple of minutes will give you back hours of valuable time each month, in short, its life changing 🙂
