Discover the Freedom and Flexibility of Garden Offices: Ten Reasons to Choose One

If you would like to work from home or have a building in your garden as a leisure room then our range of garden room home offices will meet that need. With a large range of models, sizes and designs you can be sure there will be a building to meet your needs.

Strongly made using robust European redwood timber you can be sure it will withstand the effects of the British weather. With great height inside, toughened glass windows and full insulation you can enjoy your little oasis in your garden away from the world.

All these garden offices will be made especially for you – no hanging around in a warehouse or yard. To make your life easy they will be delivered and erected free. We can even arrange to build a base for you leaving just the moving in for you. How good is that?

Work From Home

1/ Working from home away from the daily commute is just one of the reasons to consider an office at home in your garden. It can be more enjoyable, you can be more creative with a calm, clear head – one which is not worn out by the 7.42 to London.

With the internet being so good these days you can connect to the office as if you were there. Video conferences are easy to set up and to share with all your work colleagues. It makes for a better work-life balance and the extra time saved can be spent with your nearest and dearest.

However, you do need to be disciplined with the hours you work. Don’t work in your nightwear however you don’t need to be in full city attire – just casual will do the trick.

Answer To Your Dreams

2/ A garden office is the answer to the above working dream. And with a dedicated garden room, you can ensure that your working and domestic life can be kept separate.

You may even consider an outdoor room in your garden for your leisure activities such as for a garden gym room or for your hobby, craft or any other projects on the go where you can organise your space and spread out in it. Any of these choices will help remove clutter from your home and it run more efficiently.

Move Away From House

3/ Moving away from the house is always a good thing so that the day-to-day activities such as eating, the laundry, and the TV are moved out of range.

The separation helps to keep everything on an even keel and stops you from going barmy. Being under the family’s feet indoors can be a recipe for discord – being in your own little garden office pod – you can feel in control of your destiny.

Take Control Of Your Life

4/ At any time of the year you can decide to take control of your life but, quite often, just after New Year, it seems to be the time for a change in your life and working arrangements.

One of the beauties of wood, and this is why I have been in this business for over 40 years, is that it is a natural product which makes you feel good about yourself. It boosts your spirits and body far more than a concrete, brick or steel building ever can.

It’s much nicer than an air-conditioned office block which can create stuffiness and dry throats. With your own garden home office, YOU control the working environment and the temperature.

You would like some fresh air? then you can open the window to suit YOU. Try doing that in an office block. Even if you could you won’t be popular.

Garden Rooms Justify The Cost

5/ Modern garden rooms can be surprisingly inexpensive if you take into account the benefits they can provide for you. Small garden offices will often provide that bit of space for you to function perfectly.

And even the larger fully insulated building will be massively cheaper and less expensive than the equivalent home extension. Also, they are far easier to plan for and to put into action.

With just the time a normal house extension takes to get planning permission, you could have a new delightful office in place. That’s got to be worth considering.

Save Money Working From Home

6/ Whereas you can work from home for your employer the benefits multiply if you are self-employed or run a small business from home. Check out the cost of a rented office against buying your own office for your garden with its running costs.

The difference is amazing. And when you have bought your new building there is no rent to pay every month coming out of your bottom line. Quite possibly just the first year savings from a rented small office may pay for your new building.

Fully Insulated and Double Glazed

7/ All of our Royal, Regent, Fleet and Odiham insulated garden rooms are fully insulated and include double-glazed doors and windows as standard. This will help to keep the costs down if you currently work in your home as your central heating can be turned down (but not if your partner is indoors if you know what is good for you)

Your new building will be lovely and warm in the winter and cooler in the summer enabling you to work efficiently. Lower heating bills have to be a good thing.

Multi Function Building

8/ Besides using your new insulated garden building as an office it can be used for many other functions. So if your plans change it could become a garden gym room or play room. Or why not consider one of these modem buildings with more than one room in the first place?

One room could be your office as the other rooms could be for other uses. Maybe as a garden office shed, a workshop or a hobby room. By combining all these rooms into one you can have a more pleasing timber building in your garden as well as being a cheaper option against buying several buildings.

Cost Effective

9/ The bottom line behind any purchase is how cost-effective it will be for you. That is one of the first rules for successful businesses. If your business is VAT registered you can normally claim the VAT back on your purchase.

It can get a little involved with tax and capital allowances so it’s often an idea to chat to your accountant to ascertain the best route to go down. It might be an idea for you to charge rent to your business for the use of your new insulated garden room for all of its business use.

Again your accountant should help you onto the right road. Check out the advice on this site which might help you choose.

Life Work Balance

10/ This brings us back to why you should be choosing a new garden room for your home. Keeping your home life and work in balance is key, as well as saving time and money. But there is nothing which beats owning your little world and sitting with nature in your garden.

This is why you should consider all the features which are important to you, how large your new contemporary garden room should be and the general layout to suit you. Do not rush this decision – talk to the experts and actually go and view some examples of the building available.

Only by doing this can you appreciate the quality (or otherwise) and what your expectations should be. Don’t lower your expectations – only buy the building which is right for you. Or choose a bespoke garden room just for you.

Conclusion About Helping You Choose
