20+ Years Experience
Specialist Garden Offices
As working from home becomes the norm across the UK, it is understandable that customers are reviewing the space they have at home in which they work in. It is unlikely that when most residents moved into their current homes that, they were aware of working from home becoming such a big part of their employment. Therefore, it is unlikely that a lot of residents had home office space already.
It is not always easy to make enough space inside of your home for an office space in May 2023. We are increasingly seeing room conversions to make a home office or garden space being utilised in a number of fun and creative ways to get the office space needed.
Here at the Garden Office Company, we pride ourselves on being able to meet the needs of all of our customers when creating a garden office building. We can help you whether you want to create a garden office pod, garden building, or garden office shed.
Whether you already have a garden building in place that you are looking to convert or if you need advice and assistance with building an entire structure, we can support you by discussing which option will fit your needs and your budget.
We can give you advice regarding planning permission, and we strive to ensure that the process is as easy as it can be for you from start to finish.
Here at Garden Office Company, we have years of extensive experience in creating garden offices. We have helped thousands of customers nationwide to achieve their ideal garden office in the garden space they already had.
We offer structures from the simplest garden rooms to insulated garden office pods, and a log cabin office is also available. Each type of garden office will depend on the space and budget you have available. We are happy to help guide you through this process using the knowledge we have built up for what suits each type of structure and location.
You can be assured that you are in safe hands when designing your dream garden office buildings. New garden office sheds are becoming more popular. However, our bespoke service means that your garden buildings will be functional to suit your own design specifications.
We are able to meet the needs of any customer, whether your garden office is inside an existing garden building or if you need a garden building to be constructed entirely. We only use high-quality, durable materials so you can be assured of the durability of the structure you are paying for.
We have worked with thousands of customers across the UK, meeting a range of requirements for building type, size, budget, and design. All of our staff are trained and qualified to support you from the very beginning enquiry stage, through design, planning permission requests, building, and completion.
In over a decade of constructing garden offices, we have worked with businesses in addition to individual home properties. This uniquely places our company to help build garden offices and garden rooms of all shapes, types, and sizes.
The Garden Office Company is an accredited garden office installer. We have a registered company number and all necessary training, regulations, and insurances in place. You are guaranteed a professional service with every interaction.
When looking for garden office installers, you can use a search engine to find those companies located near you. This is an excellent way to ensure that the company you choose will travel to your property to build your garden office.
When searching for companies near you rather than a specific company that has been recommended to you, we strongly advise that you look at the ratings and reviews for the companies you are considering. When opening a site such as Google maps, you will be given a list of companies near your location and also their customer rating.
The review rating of the company is shown out of five. You can then link to read each review and see what customers think of the service they have received from each company. It is always beneficial to look at images of the structures built by the company so you can see the end result.
Customer experience and satisfaction are extremely important when deciding which company you are going to use for any service. At the Garden Office Company, we take great pride in the exemplary customer satisfaction scores we receive. Customer service and a positive customer experience are at the heart of everything we do and every service that we offer.
The benefits of a garden office are numerous. Garden offices offer you more space in your home as your work can be contained within garden buildings. Building a home office in your garden is also often more cost-effective than a remodel inside your home due to the difference in materials used.
We are able to build garden offices, garden rooms, and garden buildings that will suit every property type and garden size. For smaller gardens, we can build an insulated garden office pod that will not make your garden feel cluttered or claustrophobic.
Garden offices or a garden room will add value to your home. Often this is far more added value than the cost of building the garden room or office. There are a variety of design options available, and we are confident they will suit the majority of our customers. However, if you do not see a design that you would like, then do not hesitate to get in touch with us, and we can discuss a bespoke design with our design team.
Having a modern home office space outside of your property can also help you to create the distinction between work life and home life. Leaving your property, albeit to go into a garden office, will feel more like going into work and the same in reverse when you finish for the day.
You can also apply for financial support to build your new garden office. You should ensure that you use a company that is registered with the finance conduct authority and on the finance services register to ensure it is a reputable company.
In addition to adding a structure outside of a private property, some companies are choosing to install a garden office pod structure inside of office buildings. This has recently been adopted by the Nationwide Building Society as an alternative type of meeting space.
Nationwide has added several pods within their offices to give colleagues a small and private space within the office. This is a great opportunity to utilise more of the floor space inside an office building and to create a more inclusive environment. Modern office space includes both desks on the floor and integrated private work areas.
As office working adapts to the changes of the modern workforce, smaller meeting areas or quiet individual work areas are becoming more popular. Smaller work areas are beneficial for those working on mobile and tablet devices who do not need full desk space. We can help you to design a work area that suits your department.
The cost of a garden office will vary depending upon your needs. A small outdoor office can cost as little as £1,000 or as much as £20,000. This will, of course, depend on the size and type of outdoor office you wish to build and the materials you will be using. A log cabin like structure will cost considerably more than a small wooden pod.
In addition to the cost of materials and the company building your garden room, you will have the additional costs of electrical installation to ensure that you can work in there. It may also be necessary to change your water system for health and safety.
When estimating costs, you should also consider all of the uses of the building you are planning. If you are simply using this as an outdoor office, it will be considerably cheaper than a garden house would be.
Log cabins are becoming increasingly popular as outdoor recreational areas. Garden room buildings can give you extra space in your home and a dedicated area to relax with friends. Incorporating your home office into this additional structure is a brilliant idea as you can be working in your home office, uninterrupted, while there are guests in your home.
You can add further personal touches to the design of any of our outdoor offices, and we offer on site design consultation if you need to discuss details further after construction has begun. Having access to an on site design consultation service puts a lot of our customers’ minds at rest. The consultation can give further advice on planning permission if you are changing the design of any of our wooden offices.
You can also add double-glazed windows to any of our home offices to improve the natural light while keeping you warmer. Home offices afford you extra space, and the light that will be allowed through windows will make the garden office feel bigger and brighter, making your work life seem brighter too.
You can choose how expensive your garden office will be, and you can begin with a basic structure which you can adapt at a later time if this will make the process more affordable for you.
There are some common questions we are regularly asked by potential customers before we begin work on their garden office. We have gathered the questions and our answers for them so you can review them before making any further decisions.
We are always available to discuss your questions and concerns, so if you have any questions about the below information or anything else, then do not hesitate to get in touch with our helpful customer service team for advice.
You can add an additional room to act as a bedroom, or you can add a pull-out bed into the room you will be using as an office if it is a big enough structure. It is best if you are going to be using your garden office for sleeping that you have double glazing to help to insulate the structure and block out some of the noise. Double glazing has multiple benefits when building a garden office.
If you are going to be using your garden office for sleeping, you will need to ensure that this is included in your planning application to ensure that the office is correctly categorised.
The requirement of planning permission will depend on the size of the garden office you are building. A structure the size of a standard garden shed will not require any planning permission. However, if you are intending to build a larger structure similar to log cabins, then planning permission will be required.
The shape of the roof will also make a difference to the requirement of permission. A flat apex roofed small structure will not usually require permission. However, a higher or pent roof will often require permission.
We offer the highest quality materials that can be used all year round, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that your new garden room will fit seamlessly into your garden.
We will support you through the planning permission process, and once you have been permitted development rights, we will arrange the delivery of all materials to your home. We will also ensure that the garden office is situated in the correct place and far enough away from your front wall.
Garden offices are worth every penny, in our opinion. Not only do they provide you with more space, a better work-life balance, and a year-round office, but garden offices can become green retreats also. You can add a solar panel system to give year-round solar power instead of wiring it for electricity.
You can alternatively use an oil-filled radiator to provide heat in addition to full insulation to retain heat. You should always be extremely careful when using an oil-filled radiator and ensure that it is correctly and safely used and stored when not in use.
Green Retreats group provide information and encouragement about the use of economically friendly materials. Green retreats recommend the materials that will be beneficial when building a garden office. Utilising these materials can benefit the environment while giving you a spare room to work in.
The Green Retreats range of garden offices offers a wide range of beautiful structures that will add to the comfort of your home and garden. Green Retreats is a range you can be confident in choosing from, and if you do wish to view the Green Retreats range, it is available online.
Garden office structures can add significant value to your home, but this will depend on the size of the structure. A fully insulated garden office with double glazing, windows and doors, bi fold doors, and opening windows that make use of all of the available space while fitting into the aesthetic of your garden and home will add high value.
An annex range garden office will also add some value to your home, providing it is fully insulated. However, as the annex specialises in larger structures, also it is important you work with a design team to ensure that the structure does not overpower your garden. A design consultation will cover wall thickness and the many benefits of the different structures available.
You can include a toilet in your garden office and also have the office double as a teenage den when you are not working. This will, however, require planning permission and electrical and water work, which will increase the cost of this type of garden office.
