With the company head office in Cincinnati, Ohio – frequent pond hopping trips between the US and UK were commonplace. Exhibitions would take Richard to all corners of the world, and international trade was booming. After spending many years working from his dining room and with the onset of Covid-19, Richard was faced with a dilemma. How was he going to make his business thrive under the new normal?

Richard found that over the years, the walls were starting to close in on him at his home dining room office, and more space was required. With a business mentality, Richard understood that renting office space was not a financially viable option; neither was a loft conversion. With a workable space of 5m x 4m in his garden, the decision was clear, a home garden office it was! 

“A loft conversation would be a real luxury, but the expense for the full works would have amounted to between £40-60k and not so easy to persuade HMRC that the room would be for the sole use of the business.”

WHY THE CUSTOMER NEEDED A GARDEN BUILDING

“As the lockdown started, I spent just two evenings deciding on how to proceed. I sat in bed thinking about the best way to tackle the inability to travel, how could we hold client seminars, create virtual trade shows that will allow us to present new technology concepts and expand our business interests. In short, how can we thrive in a lockdown scenario? It was clear, whatever I wanted to do, I could no longer do it from the dining room!”

It was clear to Richard that the dining room was no longer the environment to progress his business in these uncertain times. Richard now required a professional environment to hold client seminars, create virtual trade shows to present new technology concepts and expand his business interests.

After a quick search on the internet, Richard discovered The Garden Office and after some research decided that a home garden office was for him.

“High craftsmanship, British innovation, renewal energy farm, recyclability etc. All the boxes were ticked.”

WHAT WE DID

A neutral palette was vital in picking the design of Ricahrds studio. Working in the printing industry and dealing with colour daily, Richard required a space to contrast that. The modular features of the TGO1 were what drew Richard to the design, as well as the striking use of anthracite metals, composite decking and the wooden facade. Richard opted for a 4.5m x 3m garden office with an abundance of natural light due to his door and window options and building orientation. 

“With various options to choose from, there is a style for everyone’s tastes.”

THE FINISHED PROJECT

The addition of Richards garden office, which he calls Khaos Studios, has allowed him to have his own office space without the embarrassment of boxes stacked floor to ceiling due to lack of space in his home. Now Richard (and his colleague Otis the Jack Russell) is not only able to expand his working space, but create a Covid secure office, while still feeling like he is leaving the house and going to work.

Working remotely can be a challenge; Home seems like the best option, but the small upstairs office has become dull, uninspiring and lacking in space.

Our customer was in need of a dedicated space away from the house to focus on a home run business. With already having a conservatory for relaxing it was a challenge to find an alternative solution for creating room.

A garden is always overlooked or forgotten about when it comes to making room. Our buildings are the perfect alternative for that extra needed space. Our garden rooms provided our customer with privacy without being completely isolated from home. With fitted electrics, it allows the office to be kitted out with all the necessary tech. A toilet is a great addition to your garden room. We liaise with your plumber to ensure build is correct. A garden office is designed to be used whatever the weather – so it remains to be the best option for those in need of space all-year round!

A 5m x 3m TGO1 is a wonderful modern addition to any garden. With the space perfectly landscaped and designed to fit the garden office; aesthetical and practical.

The size of this garden room offers enough room for a couple of desks, a chair and WC + more. The 2.3m sliding doors allow easy access and corner window creates a lovely flow of natural light and ventilation.

The customer installed a hot tub next to the building, creating the perfect wind-down after a long day in the office!

It’s astonishing how our surroundings and environment can affect our quality of work. The house can be distracting, an office environment even more so and a coffee shop can only offer a certain amount of freedom and comfort. We all dream about having a room of one’s own; a place surrounded by your favourite items, no distractions other than your own wondering mind.

Our customer Nicole Russell; journalist, writer and contributing author to Bomber Command Battle of Berlin: Failed to Return was in search of some extra space for work. Having a large back garden, Nicole had explored the idea of building an extension. However, the cost, noise disruption and length of build time didn’t seem worthwhile.

The Solution?

A Garden Office.

What are the benefits of a garden office?

– 1-5 days build time
– Fully insulated for all-year round use
– 10 year guarantee
– Price inclusive of base, installation and VAT
– Zero maintenance
– Planning permission rarely required

A 4.5m x 3m garden office fits perfectly into the nook of the garden. Nicole can now stroll down the garden path to her cosy office and “Prosecco pod” for work and relaxation; away from the house but not completely isolated. The French doors, corner and lozenge window provide a lovely flow of light and ventilation to enter the room. With the desk arranged to face the 2.3m doors, Nicole can enjoy the view of a range of wildlife entering her garden.

Trying to find the time to do everything you want is like trying to find a needle in a haystack; sometimes it’s just impossible. We tend to give up and settle for a compromise.

With working, commuting, trying to keep fit and healthy, staying up to date with friends and family, catching up on TV shows and keeping up to date with the latest news…It becomes an overwhelming uphill struggle.

With working, commuting, trying to keep fit and healthy, staying up to date with friends and family, catching up on TV shows and keeping up to date with the latest news…It becomes an overwhelming uphill struggle.

It doesn’t have to be this way! We can’t offer a miracle solution; however, we can prove to you how a garden office can improve your lifestyle!

Our customers were looking to create a more relaxed, slower paced day-to-day routine. With commuting to the office, coming back home and then driving to the gym meant time was being lost and not used efficiently.

The solution to solve this? A Garden Office!

Our customer has created an office gym combo in their 7.5m x 3.5m TGO2 building. Designed with 2.3m French doors, a full height window and a single clad door for a small partitioned section for storage. With the new commute reduced down to 30 seconds it creates a new relaxed morning routine, without having to rush or worry about being late because of morning traffic. An after-work workout and wind down is only a few steps away, so you can de-stress as soon as you need.

With an office and gym in your back garden, the time saved from not commuting allows the customer to now spend more time with the kids. After all, your children are only young once!

Create a new lifestyle with a garden office.

Space in the house can be limiting when two of you work from home.

Finding a distraction-free environment can be a challenge especially when you’re working from the same sofa you were watching Netflix from a few hours ago. Business and pleasure need to be separated otherwise there’s a constant distraction by one or the other.

Our customers were in need of a professional office to run their business from, but with inadequate space in the house, office rentals raking up at a hefty price, extensions taking a varying amount of time while not friendly on the wallet, they were stuck for alternative possibilities. The solution?

A 5m x 3m garden office. The perfect alternative for those in need of space. Our garden offices are fully insulated making them suitable for all-year round use. A 5m x 3m building provides a generous 15sqm of space for two desks, cupboards and a small kitchenette. By partitioning a garden room, it creates a great storage solution for those who wish to ditch the cobwebbed shed.

Our customers are now able to leave work behind closed doors and unwind back at home.
