Garden office pods are proving very popular with people looking to create a designated workspace at home.
Offering many benefits over working from the dining room table or spare bedroom, garden office pods are a quick and cost effective way of gaining extra space.
There are a number of small garden office pod designs which are full of features on a small footprint, they have been designed to be comfortable to work in all year round, have fitted furniture to maximise your working space and equipped with the latest communication systems so that you can connect with anywhere in the world form the bottom of your garden.
Most garden office pods have been designed to be Planning Permission friendly meaning you can build them without applying for Planning Permission, they are normally under 2.5m high so you are allowed to site them tight up to the boundary of your garden – minimising the amount of your garden the building takes up. Larger garden offices with pitched roofs have to be sited at least 2 meters from the boundaries of your garden.
There are around 100 garden office suppliers in the UK and most will have designs for small garden office pods in their portfolio. Its worth looking at suppliers who specifically offer a small garden office range, this can often be your most cost effective way of buying a small office pod, as a lot of thought has been put into the design, layout and usability of the building. These buildings often come with furniture and a well equipped electrical and communication system as standard meaning you just plug in your computer and start work.
The smallest useable garden office size is a 2.1m x 2.1m internal footprint, this will often be sold as a 2.4m x 2.4m external size office. Prices for this size of building vary between £5,000 and £15,000 depending on the design and the supplier.
