Garden offices – the answer to working from home?

If you are lucky enough to work from home, you’ve probably thought long and hard about where you will be based during your working hours. You may be spending up to forty hours a week in this environment, so it has to be both comfortable and practical.
That small box room you were thinking of utilising may be okay for the short term, but if you are planning to work from home for a longer period, you will need something a bit bigger than the spare bedroom. This is why more and more people are choosing a garden office from Dunster House. They have a wide range of garden offices to suit most needs, but before you make your choice, have a good think about the practicalities of working in a garden office.

Don’t cut corners with garden offices!
Some people simply modify a shed for their office needs. This could work out okay during the summer months, but you’ll soon find that you will be uncomfortable and miserable if you have to work there during the winter. The reality is that a simple shed – made from single planks of thin wood – will not be the best option when you take into the account the British weather. And thieves will love it, because they will be able to break in with relative ease!
You will also need to consider how often you will be using your office. Even if you are planning to use your garden office occasionally rather than as a full time workplace, you’ll still need to ensure that your choice of building is well insulated and secure if you intend to leave computers and other valuables inside. If you are a regular garden office worker, you will need to make sure that your environment is as comfortable as a standard workplace. So have a chat with the people at Dunster House and they will be able to give you the best advice when it comes to choosing garden offices.
