If you wish to choose a conventional building structure with full cavity walls and a tiled roof or a
more substantial building along the lines of a ski chalet, we will be pleased to work closely with you
and create your ideal design.
Many of our customers have chosen a conventional glazed
Conservatory Sun Room or a Free Standing Orangery should there be
no ideal elevation on the family home, to construct this glazed
protected area from which to enjoy the garden.
Over 4 million people now work from home with many running a very
busy office which would be inappropriate from under their stairs or a
converted bedroom. A garden office will give sanctuary from the
hustle and bustle of a family home and provide an environment from
which you can relax after business. You will avoid joining a queue of
carbon monoxide pumping cars, sitting in frustration trying to meet
appointment deadlines or shoulder to shoulder on a commuter train.
The first step
would be to carefully consider how much you wish to spend, whilst being realistic in
relation to floor area, design and general appearance. This must be hand in glove with what
furniture and equipment you would put inside the new building, how much glass in the side
elevations together with very importantly your preferred door opening configuration. Do keep
uppermost in your thoughts, plenty of natural light to create an agreeable working area, appropriate
blinds can always be introduced.
It is best to ensure that the only bright area within your new office
does not come from a computer screen or artificial lighting.
It is essential to construct a secure base, the foundations will depend on how stable the sub-soil is
within your garden. Even if a small structure, it is very important that the foundations on which it is
constructed and whether the soil beneath will continue to appropriately support your structure.
This may mean more than a simple concrete slab to ensure long term stability.
