Building a garden office

What is a garden office pod?

Garden office pods are a growing trend when it comes to working from home. Stylish, practical and, best of all compact, office pods allow you to create yourself a dedicated workplace that you can close the door on at the end of the day, without eating up too much of your precious garden.

A garden office pod is a small contemporary-looking building, constructed of Western Red Cedar, and installed in a suitable location in your garden. It is fully kitted out as a home office, to your bespoke requirements, and will serve you all year round courtesy of premium grade insulation, and a heating system if you wish to install one. You can also connect up power and Wi-Fi, so you are fully connected.

What are the benefits of an office pod?

There are various benefits when it comes to opting for a home office pod:

Compact and visually appealing

If you’re looking to create a dedicated space to work from home, you’ll do well to consider office pods. UK wide these garden buildings are proving a highly popular choice, mostly thanks to their compact size.

If you’re loathe to give up your valuable outdoor space, you’ll find that an office pod will fit neatly into a corner, leaving the rest of your garden free to enjoy. The small garden office pod is also the ideal solution if you’re keen to introduce something contemporary and attractive into your garden.

The less expensive home office option

What are the alternatives to the garden office when it comes to creating a dedicated space to work from home? An extension? A garage or loft conversion? All viable options, but very expensive, and incredibly disruptive too.

And where the garden office pod falls under permitted development rules, which they do most of the time, then you won’t have all the planning red tape to wade through either.
