If you are one of the many people now working at home, you will understand the demand for dedicated home office space. Rather than sacrificing a spare room, taking over the dining room or sharing the kitchen table with the children’s homework, a log cabin offers the ideal space for focused, distraction-free working.
According to a September 2020 survey carried out by the Institute of Directors, 74% of directors intend to continue with increased home-working as part of their organisations post-coronavirus. So, many of us will see our work patterns permanently changed and need a permanent workspace solution.
Building your own garden office is easier than you think. Quicker and less disruptive than embarking on a home extension, you can choose DIY assembly or take advantage of our professional installation services, for a speedy, expert build.
Log cabins have the thickest cladding of garden buildings which makes them more suitable as insulated garden rooms for year-round working. The majority have cladding logs that start at 28mm and increase to 70mm or more. The thicker the cladding, the better insulated the office.
Also, log cabins are designed with living space in mind so feature larger expanses of glazing and offer the increased insulation of double glazing on some models. Timber floors withstand years of footfall and the weight of office furniture while key-operated locks provide security.
With both traditional and contemporary garden offices on offer, whether you prefer charming Georgian windows and a chalet style construction or the sleek lines of a pent roof and modern bifold doors, your new garden office building will be a striking feature that suits your style. Plus, the appeal of being surrounded by natural timber with views of your garden makes heading into the office a pleasure.
If you have limited space, a garden office and shed combined will offer you work space as well as valuable garden storage. Alternatively, this extra space can be used for storing stock, filing cabinets and other work-related items. Another way to maximise space is to consider a corner garden office. With our small garden offices starting at 3x2m, there is a workspace solution for almost every size garden.
