We are currently looking at the possibility of getting a garden room for the garden of our new house. This is quite a task as the garden has a bit of a slope so we will also need the garden to be landscaped and levelled, which of course adds to the cost! We are also looking for artificial grass in the remaining garden as I love artificial grass as I am allergic to grass and get a rash if I sit on it!
These are some of the reasons why we considered getting one or friends who had a garden office pod, so I thought it would be great to share with you to see if it is perfect for you garden.

An extra room
A garden office or garden room gives your home an extra room without having to move house. This takes up space in your garden that you probably hardly use except in the summer and means you can use it all year round.
Cheaper than an office
If you work for yourself and have considered renting an office then in the short term it will be cheaper than a garden office, but in the longer term it will cost so much more. By having your own garden office you pay out once and have that office forever!
More effective work
If you have your own office space, you will likely work much harder and use your time more effectively than if you had an office in your home. All those distractions like changing the laundry, answering the door or turning on the TV while eating lunch and then being distracted just don’t happen.
Close the door on work
Using a garden office means you can close the door of your work at the end of the day in the same way as you would in a physical office away from your home. It’s a great way to have that office space and to properly relax in the evenings after work.
It will always have a use
If you have a garden building, it might be an office now, but when you retire or if you change your plans, you can turn that room into anything you like. A garden room makes a great gym, bar or even sports room with a pool table and TV for when the World Cup is on!
Less wasteful construction
An alternative to a garden room is an extension. Builders make a lot of mess and having an extension will get dust around your whole house. A garden room gives you the same benefits as an extension, but without the mess during construction!
It increases the value of your home
Having a garden room or a garden office can significantly increase the value of your home. Now that working from home is becoming much more acceptable and normal if you decide to sell and move, chances are someone else will see the great benefit of either as an office or something else.
