Taking your home office outside

If like many of us you are now working from home and you haven’t got a space inside your house to set up a dedicated home office, or maybe you already have a dedicated home office and there are two of you fighting over it. It could be time to think about taking your home office outside.

What you can do will depend on the space you have available and the amount of money you want to invest in creating a home office in your garden.

Log cabin

Installing a log cabin in the garden is a great option. It can often be located in an area of the garden that is not being used for anything in particular.  If you have a small shed that has seen better days then you could consider knocking it down and replacing it with a log cabin that can be configured as a dual purpose building. I recently had a 4ft x 3ft log cabin installed and one third of the cabin is the shed and the other two thirds is the office area. The three outside walls of the office area were insulated and LVT (luxury vinyl tiling) flooring and electrics were installed.

Luxury garden room

If you have more space then a luxury garden room might work better for you. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes you can even have a bespoke one made to fit a specific space in your garden. Depending on the size of your garden room it can be configured to be a multi-functional space including a gym area or even an extra bedroom for guests.


If you’re looking for something a little different then take a look at the innovative Glamtainer. It’s a penthouse in a box.  They are made out of shipping containers and are extendable. Again depending on how much room you have in your garden you could have an office and self-contained accommodation for guests. The best news about these little beauties is that when you move house you can take it with you!
