Work from home in comfort & style
Figures released by the ONS (Office for National Statistics) show that the number of people working from home is now 4.2million, up from 2.7 million in 1998. The proportion of people working from home as a percentage of those employed in the UK has also risen to 13.9%.
Many people find working from home has it’s obvious benefits; no time wasted commuting to and from work, the advantage of flexible working hours and a reduction in the amount of money spent getting to and from work. You may also find that having a home office based within the house has it’s own challenges.
Working in such close proximity to the housework, children and home life can prove a distraction, which is where a garden room can work so well as an office.
By having an office in the garden you can create a separation from the chaos of day to day life, but also take advantage of the benefits of no commute.
All our garden rooms come complete with commercial grade uPVC doors and windows. Double foil-backed insulation provides insulation levels equivalent to a modern home extension and a range of heating options will keep you warm throughout the cold winter months.
Our buildings are also wrapped in a vapour layer, allowing you to leave your paperwork and computers outside in the office all year round. The locks we use are the same five lever insurance registered locks you would find on a typical home giving you complete peace of mind.
Our range of contemporary buildings will also impress occasional visitors coming to your office giving a professional image for your company.
A typical one person office will range from 4 to 9 metres squared while a garden room between 10m2 and 15m2 will provide ample space for 2 people working from home.
Our large garden buildings are also commonly used as marketing suites and sales offices for businesses looking for more space at a fraction of the cost of an extension. Larger buildings can also feature partition walls allowing you to separate an area for use as a home office and use the rest of the building as a home cinema, gym or as storage for your garden equipment.
