Small Garden Offices

Small Garden Offices

Small garden offices are great for a one or two-person home office solution. The 2020 pandemic has meant that many of us have experienced working from home for the first time, and is set to become the ‘new normal’ for a lot of us too.

Garden offices are a modern way to create a professional workspace; all in the comfort and practicality of your home garden.
Perhaps you don’t have space inside your home to create a study, or you realise that the distractions of home are too much when working from home and you are unable to achieve a good work/life balance. A garden office can help.

Small garden?

Small garden offices are a great solution for customers who have small gardens – typical in the UK, especially in our big cities!

… or looking for a small office in a larger garden?

Perhaps you are looking for a small garden office as a hidden den in your garden for total privacy.

Either way, a small garden office is a great addition to your home and lifestyle.

Small garden office sizes

Our small garden offices are available in sizes from 5 square metres and upwards, in over 70 size configurations in total.

Our 4 garden office designs have been created to suit different tastes and styles. Each has unique external design features that give every building it’s identity; such as the curved corner of the TGO4 and then statement roof of the TGO1.

If you are looking for the absolute smallest garden office, then the TGO2 building is your best choice as this design has a compact external design, giving it the smallest overall footprint of any of our garden office buildings. This building has no deck steps of overhanging roof elements for a neat and industrial look.

Why choose a small garden office?


Planning permission rarely required

The great news is that no matter what size of building you choose from The Garden Office, planning permission is rarely required – saving you time and money.


Work/life balance

A garden office lets you keep your home and work life completely separate. The benefits of keeping the two separate will be felt not only by you, but by the rest of your household too. When you are finished at the end of the day you can close the doors behind you and relax at home without the temptation to continue working when you should be spending time with your family.


Private & professional

As a completely detached room away from the house, your small garden office is a space to focus and work in peace and quiet. No more will you need to worry about someone in your household walking in or making noise during a meeting. You have complete control of the environment. This also gives your family a break too, not having to tiptoe around your home office during the day.
A small garden office is a more professional outfit for holding client meetings than inviting them into your home. Again, helping to keep your private life, private.

Small garden offices & planning permission

Planning permission for your small garden office is rarely required. Garden office buildings are classed as ‘outbuildings’ and as such they fall within permitted development rights.
If for any reason you don’t have permitted development rights and do require planning permission, then we take care of the application process for you – saving you the headache.
