  • No more than 50% of area of land around a property can be taken up with garden buildings
 
  • If your garden building does NOT meet the above criteria, e.g. if you want a garden building taller than 2.5m, then you would NEED to apply for planning permission
 
  • If, however, your garden building DOES comply with the above criteria, you won’t need to apply for planning permission and you can have a garden building up to 30m2 (internal size). Anything bigger than 30m2 will need to go through building regulations

Top Benefits of Having a Garden Building

More and more companies are getting on board with flexible working hours and encouraging their employees to work from home. It makes sense, flexible hours lead to happier employees, and working from home means that companies can reduce their office space, saving money.  Similarly, many people are turning to freelance work which offers the flexibility of home working and organising your own work schedule, a very attractive prospect, especially for families with young children.

It is for this reason that garden office buildings are becoming ever more popular. An extra space, away from the family home, that provides a quiet place to concentrate on the day’s work.

 Here are our top benefits of having a garden office:

 No commuting

Commuting into work takes an average of 1.15 hours each way, which, over the length of a career, totals 10, 600 hours. That is a lot of time spent in a train or car. An office in your garden means you can literally get out of bed and walk to your office, still in your pjs.

 

Saves money

Less commuting will also save significant money on travel, as well as savings on incidentals like expensive Starbucks coffees.

 

 More time with the family

If you work in an office away from home, finishing work at 5pm means that you won’t get home until 6/6.30pm, giving you less time with your family. You may miss out on quality time with your children, their bath and story time, for example. A garden office means that when you finish at 5pm, you are home at 5:01pm, ready to be with your family.

 

Customisation

Rather than having to spend your weekdays crammed into a grey cubicle desk, you can work in an environment of your choosing. From the office chair to the colour of the walls, you have complete autonomy over the décor of your garden office.

 

Professional look

Rather than using the kitchen table, or squeezing a desk into the spare bedroom, a garden office offers a professional environment in which you can conduct meetings.

 

Work/Home divide

Having a separate space for you to work will give you a greater ability to switch off at the end of the day. If your office is in your home, then there is always the temptation to turn on your computer to just check a couple of emails and the next thing you know is it’s 10pm and you’ve spent no time with your loved ones. Having to physically leave the house and walk through your garden to your office will reduce the temptation. Once you finish for the day you can lock the office door and walk away. 

 

Eco friendly

By working in a home garden office, you are reducing your carbon footprint by travelling less.

 

Flexible hours

Working as a freelancer from your office garden offers you flexible hours, so you can work around your other commitments, such as childcare. It also means that you can be available if you need any repairs in the house, as you will be at home to let the repair person in, as well as on hand to pick up any packages that are delivered.

 

No office politics

Working by yourself means that you escape any office politics and are free to concentrate on your work.

 

Add value to your property

An addition of a garden office can add as much as 5 to 7% to the value of your property, making it a sensible investment into your future.

We also have a great selection of other garden buildings in a range of sizes and styles that can be perfect for your home and garden designs. Check them out on our Instagram
