Why Choose A Garden Office?

garden office

Garden offices give breathing space, are highly insulated and are an alternative to a house extension.

When having a garden office constructed in a garden there is no disruption to the home and no need to move house. Designed and built to last a lifetime using housing quality standards and regulations, garden rooms and offices are double-insulated and a solid investment for the future.

Garden offices and rooms, are designed for three purposes:

  1. To keep you, your paperwork, books and office equipment dry and condensation free.
  2. To be used and enjoyed all year round.
  3. To give your house back to your family, so that they can make lots of noise whilst you are working.

Enjoy all year round living in a home-from-home in the garden. Garden home offices and annexes are usually protected with double layers of breathable insulation, for comfortable living however the weather behaves. During heatwaves, frosts, rainstorms and droughts a  garden office building will need a little heating, no air conditioning and will use small amounts of electricity.

Garden offices can be constructed so that they avoid plastic. The calm atmosphere of a garden office is created by choosing natural materials. No polyurethane insulation or plastic vapour barriers that create condensation. No PVC windows or wall panels. No plastic fillers or sealants.

We know you care about the environment. To help reduce CO2 emissions InsideOut use carefully chosen materials, produced in the UK and manufactured with low levels of energy and few chemicals. Our garden offices and garden rooms are built with a strong timber frame made with FSC wood. We use double layers of insulation and breathing technology to protect computers, books and musical instruments all year round.

Over 25% of the UK’s CO2 emissions come from inadequate insulation in domestic buildings. To further cut down on CO2 emissions, eco-friendly insulation can be put into a garden office. These eco-friendly materials have been manufactured using as little energy and chemicals, and as much recycling, as possible.

If exterior space is limited, a garden room is not out of the question. Small garden snugs are available and even the smallest Snugs are designed and constructed for environmentally considerate, all-year-round living and working. Minimal heating is required because of double layers of insulation in floor, roof and walls. Forget about air-conditioning; relax or work in the calm and quiet of a building that is ‘working’ to provide you with a dry, condensation free atmosphere.

Not so long ago gardens were exclusively for leisure. For lying around in, pottering in, eating al fresco, barbecues, bonfires, boules and swingball. But as the economic climate changes, the picture is looking very different. Once a haven of relaxation, gardens are turning into hives of activity as people all over the UK go to work in the garden. As the recession points Britain towards a new way of living, people want much more from their green spaces. These days, in addition to a lawn, shrubs and flowers, many people are serious about growing their own produce and keeping chickens, others are bringing their businesses home to roost in their garden buildings.

Just like our ancestors in pre-industrial revolution agrarian communities, we’re returning to our roots. Not so much a nation of shopkeepers, more a nation of smallholders as we spend more time working at home, from home and in our homes.

An amazing 4.2m businesses in the UK employ less than 10 people and in today’s unpredictable economic climate, many small businesses are strengthening their financial position by taking their business home. It is no longer just the self-employed and home-workers who run their businesses from home. Micro businesses are also saying goodbye to rented offices in town centres and taking their staff home with them to a fully functional garden home office at the bottom of the garden.

It is wise to bear in mind that taking your business home doesn’t mean you can leave legislation on the doorstep. If you’re planning to bring employees into your office in the garden, buildings with more than 30sq metres of floor space must meet a variety of stringent regulations regarding structural standards, insulation levels, fireproofing, access and facilities for people with restricted physical mobility. A reputable garden office manufacturer will construct to the same strict Building Regulations specifications as a new home.
