Garden Offices

Make use of the empty space under your stairs!

More professionals are working from home than ever before, and this trend is likely to continue. Garden offices are fast gaining popularity as an alternative to working from the sofa, or a cramped spare room!

What are the benefits of a garden office?

There are so many benefits to having a garden office space. One of the biggest challenges of working from home is separating your work life and your family life. With a garden office, you’ll eliminate distractions and allow yourself the space you need to be productive. When you first start working from home, you might notice that you lack motivation. If you are working in a place that you usually use for leisure (your living room or bedroom), it can be difficult to associate that space with work. With this mindset, it’s challenging to concentrate. Garden offices are purpose-built for work only; with a designated workspace, it’s far easier to focus.

Perhaps your role may involve client visits in the future? If so, a proper office creates a more professional impression. A garden office is highly cost-effective, (you’d spend the same amount renting an office space for just two years)! Once your garden office is constructed, you’ve got yourself a durable home office for many years to come.

Do I need to get planning permission?

It depends on the size of the garden office you require. At Maple Tree, we offer a studio height garden office (2.5m). It’s simple to gain planning permission for this size under the terms of ‘permitted development’. If you provide your local council with details of your garden office, they should be able to give you the correct documentation.

When you are planning your home office, Maple Tree can provide you with the drawings you need at no extra cost. We also have a professional planning consultant on site, who can offer top advice should you need it.
