Our garden room buildings are regularly transformed into garden office pods by our customers. In fact, garden offices are the number one use-case for our buildings and have been since we started in 2005!
A garden office is a great home office alternative; being private, professional and free from distractions. What’s more, our buildings are fully insulated for use all-year-round, meaning productivity doesn’t dive with the weather.
With working from home being the new normal for a lot of the country’s workforce, garden offices have become somewhat of a necessity for those of us who don’t have the space (or dynamic) at home for a private and professional office.
A garden office pod is a modern, simple and cost-effective way to add space at home.
These unique and modern buildings are something that the whole family will want to use! Whether you let them of course is up to you…
What is a garden office pod?
A garden office pod is a compact and practical garden building used as your dedicated workspace. In our mind, the perfect garden office pod is a small garden room or garden pod that’s been cleverly transformed into a home office. That being said, there’s no reason why a large garden room couldn’t become your garden office pod – after all, it’s the modular styling and garden location of our buildings that make them a ‘pod’ anyway!
Garden office pods are detached from the main home, giving a private and professional space to focus on your work. This means you can close the doors at the end of the day knowing you’ve done a hard day’s work and go home to relax.
Benefits of a garden office pod:
Our garden buildings are available in over 70 size configurations for each design. This means we have a building to suit your needs and available space. The unique and modular design of our buildings makes them a neat and compact addition to your home and garden. What’s more, we can construct our buildings as close as 40cm to any obstacle or boundary, meaning we can use up any tricky gap or hidden nook in the garden.
The modern and unique design of our garden buildings make them a stylish addition to your home and lifestyle. Scandi-inspired trends of minimalism and natural materials have inspired our quality built designs to create a feature in your garden that is contemporary and lasting.
- Built for Quality
We use only the best materials to construct our buildings, meaning you garden office will be a lasting investment to your home. Every building comes with a 10-year guarantee and is designed for a 30-year life. Learn more about our materials and manufacturing process here…
Our quality materials extend to our complex insulation layers in our roofs, walls and floors, as well as the premium double glazing in our doors and windows. We also include heating as standard with all of our insulated garden room buildings. This creates a dry, warm and comfortable space to use all-year-round. The productivity in your garden office needn’t drop with the temperature!
A garden building is a cost-effective way to add extra space at home compared to the alternatives; such as a loft conversion, extension or conservatory. We use the same high-quality buildings materials that you would find in a new build home, making our buildings as comfortable as a room in your house would be.
A garden office pod is completely detached from your house, giving a distinction between work life and home life. Whether your job needs silence or requires you to make a lot of noise, either way, you and your household are protected from each other!
Your garden office is your dedicated space for work. Often the home office quickly becomes a dual-purpose space, or you have no home office at all and are working from the dining room table or sofa. If you are taking video calls or having clients meet you at your home office, then a garden office keeps a professional edge for your business.
- Work-life balance
In our opinion, this is the most important benefit of a garden office pod. Having a good work-life balance is important for your family relationships, especially when working from home. A modern life and career mean wearing many hats, and the version of you that you take to work might not be the version you want your family to know!
Keep home life for fun, family time and relaxation. Keep the stresses of work at the office.
This is made easier with a garden office when you can lock the door and walk away at the end of the day.
Office Pod Ideas
Small Garden Office Pods
Small garden office pods are sometimes all you need! It’s amazing what can be achieved inside even some of our smallest buildings. Scandi-inspired minimalism and modern organisation makes working from a small garden office pod a breeze.
Large Garden Office Pods
Large garden office pods are a fantastic workspace if you need space for a few people or have a lot of bulky equipment. Even in our largest sizes, our buildings are still stylish and discreet, meaning they won’t look out of place.
Positioning your garden office pod behind a large tree or in the back corner of the garden gives maximum privacy for your work and can make it feel like you are not at home at all. Our natural materials and elegant designs can blend into your garden environment and disappear for a completely secret den.
Stand Out Style
We offer a range of styles and finishes which mean you can think outside the box and create a building that makes a stand out feature in your garden. With everything from cladding options, to exterior lighting, we can help create a building that will be the envy of your neighbours.

Our garden rooms are priced based on the internal sizes rather than the exterior footprint, making it easier for you to plan your work space. A commercial unit from Green Retreats could end up saving you a fortune from the costs of renting a workspace alone. The price includes base, installation and VAT so there are no (nasty) surprises when it comes to final payment.
