Home Garden Offices

With commuting in major cities taking 3 or more hours a day, working at home can save teleworkers the equivalent of 2 working days a week. That adds up to less stress, more time to think, improved output, greater accuracy, fewer motoring miles, reduced danger and risk of accidents, lower costs and more. And all while finding more time to improve your own quality of life.

Home and garden office kits are available to buy at our online store The Home & Garden Centre.

Home Based Tele-workers Save All Round


Modular Self Build Office Kits

Whether you are a rural home worker, or live in an urban area, the advent of widespread Broadband availability and Government incentives to promote working from home has raised the bar for flexible home-office facilities. Gone are the days when squeezing a desk under the stairs, or into the corner of a room, provided sufficient extra space for a home office. Today's business environment demands separate, dedicated space for state of the art IT, fast communications, efficient storage, uncluttered operations, and space for visitors. Working from home no longer means working around the kids, between chores, and suffering constant interruptions.


Teleworking Offices are Important

Indeed, todays focussed tele-workers know that quiet concentration is necessary to make flexi-working away from centralised offices successful. And they understand how important it is to them personally to achieve this. Working from home is about more than avoiding traffic jams and horrendous journeys to work. It's about really creating more quality time for themselves, their families and friends, as well as delivering improved efficiency and effectiveness for their employers.

Self Build Office Kits Promote Sustainability

It's also about saving the planet, an important driver behind the UK Government's commitment to help and promote telecommuting. Reducing road congestion, cutting down on journeys to work, and encouraging wider application of advanced technology adds greatly to our global triple bottom line. Saving fuel, wear, tear and maintenance of vehicles and roads delivers real economic advantage. Lowering carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas - and other noxious emissions creates a cleaner, safer world. In turn this helps improve individual respiratory health (e.g. reduced asthma attacks), as well as improving life quality in numerous ways.

Extra Home Office Workspace - the Easy Way!

Extending your house to create office space at the side or rear, remodelling and converting outbuildings, or as a room-in-the-roof loft conversion, will usually need planning permission and building regulation approval. To do this you'll need to get plans drawn up, structural engineering calculated, submissions to the authorities made, materials selected & schedules prepared, and get a building contractor or a number of subcontractors in to carry out the work for you, or under your direction.


It all takes a long time, costs a lot, and is often frustrating. We know we do it all the time!


But our experience is that, if you are thinking about extra office space today, you'll probably want to be using it within a month or so, not in a year or mores time. And you'll need more than a converted summer house, chalet, garden shed, workshop, garden building, or storage hut to provide the strong, heavy duty, robust and securely constructed timber office building that most professionals, sole traders and progressive businesses need.

Your Home / Garden Office in a Day

In contrast, Home-Run Professional Office Suites are designed to help you get on with life now, without the hassle and worry of building conventional house or home extensions. Planned and designed by our in-house experts, the smallest of these modular timber office kits can be erected by two people and ready for business from home use in around a day. And, at under 3.5 metres high, you may not need planning permission or fall out with the neighbours.

Minimalist Home & Garden Office Foundations

Forget excavating trenches, pouring concrete, ready-mix lorries in the road or on your drive, council inspections, curing time, brick courses, and the like for your home-space. Simply clear off the topsoil, make the ground reasonably level, cut out some solid ground areas for the foundation pads, drop in and level up the re-enforced concrete paving slab pads, and away you go!

Once you have placed the proprietary levelling shoes on the concrete pads, dropped in the prefabricated timber ring beams, clipped these together at the corners, squared the foundation frame up and adjusted the levelling screws until the frame is level all round, you're ready for the floor panels.

All Dry, Self Build Home Office Kits

After dropping the floor panels into position and screw fixed them, the all-dry, sectional timber office components enable you to access any area of land, or garden, without the cost and worry of crane hire needed to get volumetric portakabin style portable office cabins on to the office site, and without the disturbance and potential damage that could be caused to your lawns, borders and paths by block, brick and concrete wet building practices.

With everything pre-drilled for locating dowels and Olympic fasteners, after standing, plumbing, and screwing the walls in position with self adhesive foam insulation strips in-between them, and continuous plug in wiring around the eaves, the roof panels simply drop and clip into place ready for sealing and weatherproofing in the same way. Pre-cut skirting, architrave, panel joint and eaves mouldings screw over joints in the natural finish internal plank board panels and external cladding, and you literally roll out the red carpet ready to receive any self assembly furniture and equipment that you've ordered.

With pre-glazed, pre-fitted windows and doors, an abundance of mid-wall power sockets, CAT 5 pre-wired computer and peripheral points, and built in low energy fluorescent lighting, you've no need for further interior design or decorating. Simply plug in to your mains electricity, water and sewerage (connection kits and piping available) and your large, spacious, low cost internal office space is ready for use.
