There’s only so much room in the house and you may have more space in the garden that you don’t use as much as you should. You may have considered an office shed but the thought of the usual outdoor office shed may be too depressing. I found this modern prefab shed at an Ideal Home Show and fell in love with the idea of a small office garden pod. A light-filled dreamy space of your own – this prefab backyard studio shows how you can create a stylish garden office shed.
Why A Garden Office Shed?
A garden office shed makes you take your work outside the home similar to if you worked in a ‘real’ office.
It’s much easier to maintain a work life balance if you have a separate work space by maintaining regular working hours.
Moreover, if you have clients around (or work with an associate(s), a separate outdoor office shed allows them the freedom to enter and to leave the workspace without disturbing the main house.
With a modern prefab shed, this office can be created offsite and just brought into the back yard minimising the disruption to the main house.
The most expensive part of this shed is the gorgeous copper roof on this modern prefab shed (and almost doubling the cost of it!). I was thinking that in London, this copper would be stripped and sold so fast by robbers that it wouldn’t last long. On the plus side, this copper will change color with age turning a beautiful shades of brown and green.
Creating A Small Garden Office
This small garden office works because of these main design features which elevate it from the usual outdoor office shed. Although a small office space, this small office garden pod has clearly delineated spaces and uses. There isn’t much need for filing space because let’s face it most stuff now is electronic. You really don’t need that much clutter!
The large center table gives you room to spread out for your own work as well as creates a meeting space for when you have clients around.
A dedicated breakout area allows for room to think and to create.
A small kitchenette allows you to make tea and coffee or to served drinks for clients. There’s no reason to disturb the main house and/or get sidetracked by a visit to the main house.
The large windows lets the light flood into the garden office shed . The windows in the modern prefab shed blurs the line between the garden and the working area creating a a nicer environment.
Along the same lines, the office space has a charming around of greenery in its interior decor. Plants in a workspace are always a good idea and fosters creativity.
