How To Buy Or Build A Home Office In The Garden
The lockdown has changed how everyone works, especially if you’re now one of the many who works from home and may continue to for the foreseeable future. The kitchen table might have become the office, but have you considered some longer-term options?
The ‘Shoffice’, aka the shed office in the garden, is the dream for many, and since the lockdown imposed homeworking, it has been upgraded from ‘wish list’ to ‘must-have’.
There has been a surge in people enquiring with architects and designers for people wanting to have a dedicated home office or studio space. Even when given the option of returning to the office, people are wanting to have a better quality work environment, to be able to cut the commute, and also enjoy more family time.
Freelancers are finding the benefits of having an insulated, waterproof, and secure shed office. Doing away with the need to rent an office or co-working space means they can have a decent size office to their bespoke requirements, including having light and power, large windows, and room for desks, chairs, storage and computers.
A beautifully designed garden summer house or log cabin will also add a sought after feature to your home, should you put the house on the market. Garden offices are much sought after and can be used as hobby rooms and playrooms.
Generally, garden offices and sheds and log cabins do not require planning permission, if the building has a maximum height of 2.5 metres and within 2 metres of the house boundary. Listed buildings or houses in national parks or conservation areas will need to seek permission from the local authority.
