Are you looking for a designated workspace away from the distractions of the main house, but with a short commute? Well, a garden office will fit the bill perfectly.
Garden offices are designed and built like houses, so will be comfortable to use all year round, they are also safe and secure for all your valuable office equipment and furniture.
The smallest garden offices are big enough for one worker, but the flexibility of their design means that large offices for multiple workers can easily be created, as can multi room units with toilets, kitchens and shower rooms.
Garden offices are a quick way to gain extra workspace, standard designs are generally available off the shelf, and if Planning Permission is not required it can be installed within few weeks of order. Bespoke, one off designs take a little longer – around 12 weeks would be a typical time frame. Garden offices are normally built off site in factory conditions, this means that the onsite assembly period is short, some designs can be built in just a day whilst other designs take a couple of weeks to build.
Buying a garden office is very cost effective compared to other types of home extension or renting a commercial property, prices for a small 2.1m x 2.1m office suitable for one worker start around £5,000, prices go upwards from there, but budgets of £12,000 to £20,000 will buy you a good size building with lots of features.
It is widely agreed that a quality garden office will add value to your house, recent research has shown that a garden office could add 5 to 15% to the value of your house!
With short commutes down the garden path, people who work from garden offices report an improved work / life balance, are you ready to improve yours?
