Garden Office

building | shed

More and more people are now starting to work from home. While you may have dreams of living a self-sufficient life, there is no escaping the cost of living today. Therefore, rather than commuting long distances, people set up an office at home and work. Working in a spare bedroom or living room can be very difficult if you have a family, and so there is now a great interest in Garden Offices, Garden Rooms, and other Home Offices. From just a few thousand pounds you can set yourself up with a warm insulated office in your garden with electricity and telephone connections, double glazing, and all the comforts of home.

If your Garden Office is made of timber it is usually not necessary to obtain local authority planning permission. Working from home can improve your life style no end, and there are enormous environmental benefits thanks to the reduction of vehicles on the roads - less fossil fuels are burned, those on the roads can get where they are going faster and without traffic jams, and less roads will need to be built in the future across agricultural lands etc.
