Response: Thanks for your feedback. I'm sure that your new 16x10 shed with its insulation will make a fine office in your garden giving you a little peace away from tyhe house. Regards, Robin.
In my earlier blog I was explaining how the garden shed is helpful in starting or running a home business. Because the garden shed is in the garden it is easy to access and is relatively inexpensive. Add in the sheer number of sizes available also help in the flexibility of these versatile buildings. The only problem with garden sheds is the sheer amount of items which are kept in there 'just in case'.
So after clearing some space in your shed you will be able to utilise its space and maybe start small home business knowing you don't have any rent to pay. In time as your business grows you will be able to, maybe, to move to larger premises but still have your shed as a backup. The following people are just a few of the people who have followed this path.
DJ 's Virus Syndicate began their climb to the top by utilising their garden shed for practise. The time spent in there enabled them to hone their skills and this helped them get to the top of the Manchester's rave scene. Previously they were known as Virus Crew. It was reported that the group used the garden shed for mixing decks and composing songs for hours upon hours.
This grounding enabled them to catapult themselves onto the underground scene and success followed when they secured their own radio slot on Rinse FM. A member of the group, Nika D, recalled these earlier days in their garden shed with all the mess among the decks in there. With up to ten or eleven in there they used to jam for house fine tuning their skills. Bet the neighbours were happy! Rapper Snoop Dogg also used his garden shed to develop his skills.
Another success story was Chris Aday who started in his kitchen and garden shed. Started over 10 years ago with his wife, Andrea, they developed a product which has won countless awards and has grown to become one of Cheltenham's most innovative businesses. The product developed was a magnetic filtration system to remove sludge from central heating system. This sludge is responsible for many boiler breakdowns but their invention is designed to prevents the problem occurring in the first place.
They stated they were very happy and proud to have been able to start their business in their garden shed. Clearly the low overheads and minimal risk took away some of the worries associated with starting a new business. Certainly these types of businesses which have to spend a great deal of time in research with no income coming in.
Now situated on a two acre site, they have been developing new products as they have the ethos - never stand still. They are looking to grow sales overseas and where, I'm sure, there will be a great demand for their products. Clearly a marvellous story for a company which started in the humble garden shed.
Other people who have used their garden office shed to kick start their business or career include St Christopher Evans who is a biotech millionaire, Tom Uglow creative director at Google, the property guru Kirstie Allsop, the authors Joanna Harris, Neil Gaiman and Rohal Dahl.
With over 80,000 people estimated to be using their garden sheds for some form of business it's clear that the garden shed, which the British people see as a typically British institution is helping the economy our country. Clearly this has to be seen as great thing for Great Britain.
