Working at home

Working at home is more popular than ever. Increasing numbers of people are choosing to set up a garden office so that they can have a workspace at home without disrupting family life. Get home working tips here, and check out our range of log cabins and insulated garden rooms to find out how little a shed office can cost.

A garden office has the benefit of providing space to work at home, while avoiding disrupting family life in your house. We asked bloggers and home workers who have set up garden offices, studios and workshops about the benefits (and challenges) of working in a garden building. They've been generous with their knowledge and experience, and these articles give a clear picture of why you should consider giving up office life in favour of an office in the garden shed, and how you can start working at home.
