The 1990’s saw a lot of talk about home working and telecommuting but witnessed very little movement towards the changing work attitude. In the last ten years, telecommuting, along with self-employment have really taken off.
Before the end of 2012 over 4.2 million people were registered as self employed. Now over 3.7 million people in the United Kingdom work from home on occasion or use their home as a base for work.
An increasing number of people are opting to work from home and it’s clear to see why. A home office is convenient, there’s no hassle or stress of commuting or battling traffic. Working from home can cut down the costs and time spent travelling leaving more free time after work for people to spend either at home with their families or doing leisure activities.
For those that work from home on a regular basis there’s always the problem of space. Not everyone has the spare room readily available to work in from home, and those that do may find that the room soon becomes unavailable with the arrival of children. Moving home is stressful and expensive, and the same can be said about extending your property. So, why not purchase a Garden Office? Roald Dahl wrote his children’s stories in his own Garden Office and look at the success he created!
Garden Offices are more cost effective than many realise. It is cheaper to purchase a garden office than it is to extend your home or move; there’s also less worry, hassle and stress involved. Moving your office out of your home and into your garden ensures a stronger division from home and work, as well as keeping you away from your television or household chores. Cutting down the commute will also allow you to be more visible at those crucial family and school events.
With the advances in technology you can move your office to the bottom of the garden with ease. Your home wi-fi can be extended across your garden and the majority of Garden Offices have the option for electrical installation. Many Garden Offices are available fully insulated with double glazed windows and doors, a significant improvement from the conditions Mr Dahl would write in.
