Many of us are looking at ways we can stay comfortable and save money while still taking care of the planet. So if you're in the market for a garden office and you're wondering whether they really are energy efficient, the answer is a resounding YES! Garden offices offer an effective way to help reduce energy bills while enjoying all the benefits of indoor/outdoor living. These self-contained rooms provide protection from the elements, and plenty of natural light which, combined with clever design choices, can make garden offices incredibly energy efficient.

Work-Life Balance

Finding a good work-life balance is a struggle for most of us. The 9-5 grind can be tough on our mental and physical wellbeing, leaving us feeling stressed, anxious and exhausted. A micro garden office is a perfect way to help ease the daily stresses. You can have a dedicated workspace for you to focus on your projects without distractions, whether you’re a hybrid worker or work solely from home. With a garden office, you'll have more hours in the day to spend with your family and loved ones. You'll also have more time for yourself to keep things in order, stay healthy, and indulge in your own interests.

Garden Office Sheds

Cabin Master office sheds can be installed with electrics as standard - meaning you can order from us knowing that your building will be work-ready as soon as installation is finished.

Do Garden Offices Add Value To Your Home?

 

Most of us think that extending our home is one of the best ways to add value to our property; although we neglect to realise just what a big undertaking comes with this decision - not to mention the rather hefty price tag. Utilising your outdoor space with a timber garden office is an excellent alternative for those that need the space but not the credit card bill! 

How Much Value Does A Garden Office Add To Your Home?

The value of property varies widely, especially with the large fluctuation depending on where you are in the UK. There's a chance you could even end up spending 2 different prices for similar properties just a few streets apart from another in some areas in the country. Bearing this in mind, a luxury garden office could upturn the value of a property between 5% and 15%. Generally, this amount is sufficient enough to cover the cost of a bespoke garden office - plus an pleasant return on investment. Quality is the key here. A well-built and well-maintained garden office is a valuable asset to your home and can make it more appealing to potential buyers. An inadequately built garden office is more likely to put off potential buyers than add value, so if you are investing in a garden office ensure you choose a reputable designer.

Creating The Perfect Space For Your Garden Office

Ideas To Make Your Garden Office Unique

A garden office is ideal for anyone who WFH. You’re away from the house as well as being surrounded by nature, so even though you're working, it does mean that you aren’t working in you home. It comes as no surprise that the garden office was found to be one of the most valued garden features for homebuyers in 2022. Our garden office ideas offer the advantage of providing a quiet space away from the main home, that you can make as personal and unique as you wish. 

interior decor icon

Garden Office Décor Ideas

Whether you like clean neutrals, bold colour pops or dark and moody interiors, our huge choice of paint colours included as standard in your garden office price means there's a way to make your garden office decor as chic as your home. Paint an on-trend feature wall and hang decorative accessories to dress the space as if it was inside your home. The sense of familiarity and the common thread between your garden ideas and your interiors will prove comforting.

A Space For Motivation & Serenity

A garden office needs to be an environment that is both calm and motivational, so the colour you choose to paint the walls needs to be a careful consideration. Green is the colour that is associated most with the greenery from nature, so it can be quite motivational. At the same time, because being at one with nature soothes the soul, it's the ideal colour for creating a serene space in which to work.

Practicality Is Key

Wherever you decide to set up your garden office, glare on a computer screen is inevitable. There are a number of ways to minimise the brightness to save yourself squinting at your screen – the most obvious for a summer house idea is to hang a lightweight curtain, to pull across when needed. Another one of the key things you need to consider when setting up a working spot outside is a location that is close enough to the Wi-Fi, or you may wish to extend the connection to be within your garden office. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need planning permission for a garden office?

Most garden offices do not need planning permission as they fall into the 'outbuildings' catagory. There are certain rules you will need to comply with which include the overall size and height of your building. The majority of homes have permitted developement rights for their land but it is worthwhile checking for your home and area.

Within permitted development the key rules are as follows:

  • Garden office must be single story
  • The building cannot exceed more than 50% of your garden. When calculating the 50% overall you must take into consideration all outbuildings including sheds, and extensions to the original home.
  • It should not be sited on land forward of a wall forming the 'principal elevation' (that means not in front of the house).
  • If the garden office is within 2m of the property boundary the whole building should not be higher than 2.5m
 

What size garden office do I need without planning permission?

The general rules on garden office sizes are as follows:

  • Up to 15m² floor space internally should not normally be required to comply with Building Regulations
  • 15m² - 30m² floor space internally should not normally be required to comply with Building Regulations unless it is situated less than 1m away from your property boundary
  • 30m²+ floor space internally should require Building Regulations approval. This is something Cabin Master can provide guidance and assistance on.
  • The rules in your particular area can be found on your local planning portal website
  • Click here to find out more
 
 

What is the cheapest way to build a garden office?

It depends on the quality you are looking for. Summerhouses and flat pack garden offices can be quite cheap but these are often little more than glorified sheds. Instead, we specialise in buildings that you can use all year round, fully insulated, double glazed and that will last for years to come. When weighing the purchase price of a cabin against the lifespan of the cabin most people find that our buildings are incredible value for money.

 

Are garden offices worth it?

Garden offices are the perfect way to add space to your home without the expense, disruption and protracted installation time of loft conversions and traditional extensions.

Most people find that the separation from the house is also a benefit for work purposes, as well as being away from the noise and disruption that most busy families experience. So if you are looking for a Garden Office to work from home then a luxury garden building is the answer!

Do you need planning permission for a toilet in a garden office?

Buildings Regs can be applied to allow for you to add water and waste to your new garden office and also use the space as a 'office structure'. Contact our team to find out more.

 
 

Can I build a garden office next to my neighbours fence?

This depends on the size of the garden office, but in many cases this can be done.

 
 

How close can a garden office be to a boundary?

Most small to medium sized garden offices can be situated less than 1m from the boundary with any neighbours under Permitted Development rules when the overall height (of the eaves??) does not exceed 2.5m

 

Does adding a garden office add value to your house?

Garden offices are one of the most sought after features that home buyers are looking for.

The addition of a garden office creates an attractive feature that allows you to achieve a higher asking price when you come to sell your home. Most estate agents agree that a garden office adds to the value of the property. See the latest stats on Rightmove.

Do I Need Planning Permission for a Garden Office?

Whether you need planning permission for a garden office depends on several factors, including the size and location of the structure. In many cases, garden offices are considered to be 'permitted development' and do not require planning permission, provided they meet certain conditions. These conditions often include limits on the overall size, height, and proximity to property boundaries. However, if your garden office is intended for regular residential use, like a bedroom, or if your property is listed or located in a conservation area, you might need planning permission. It's always best to check with your local planning authority for specific regulations in your area

 

How Long Does it Take to Build a Garden Office?

The time it takes to build a garden office can vary widely based on the complexity of the design, size of the structure, and preparation required for the site. Generally, a simple garden office can take a few weeks to construct, while more complex designs or those requiring significant groundwork and customization could take several months. Factors such as weather conditions, material availability, and contractor schedules also play a role in determining the timeline. Prefabricated units can often be installed more quickly, while custom-built offices usually require more time.

 

Toilet and Kitchen in a Garden Office

A common upgrade for those looking for the ultimate convenience in their garden office is the inclusion of a toilet and kitchenette. At Cabin Master, we understand that your garden office is more than just a workspace; it's a place where you spend a significant portion of your day. That's why we offer the option to include a small kitchenette and a toilet in our garden office designs. These additions not only add comfort but also increase the functionality of your office, making it a self-contained unit that caters to all your basic needs throughout the workday.

 

Insulated Garden Offices

Our garden offices are not just aesthetically pleasing; they are also built to be used all year round, regardless of the weather. Insulation is a key feature in our garden offices, ensuring that they are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Using high-quality materials like Kingspan™ thermal insulation boards, our garden offices provide a comfortable working environment that's energy-efficient. This superior insulation also means reduced heating costs in the colder months, making our garden offices a smart choice for environmentally-conscious and cost-effective working.

A Business Case

The cost of our garden offices depends upon size, style and finish. Below are some of the pros and cons of having an office in your garden as opposed to an office in your house (bedroom) or local town.

  • Cheaper than renting an office.
  • No more rent after year 2.
  • Be more professional with your clients.
  • Keep work and family life separate.
  • Add value to your home.
  • Offers tax advantages.

Build Quality

We only use FSC produced slow grown PEFC/FSC Scandinavian Redwood timber cladding or Marley Board exterior cladding for our Work From Home Range. This is added over BBA certified breathable membrane to ensure all our buildings meet our strict quality control standards. The walls are constructed from structural (C16) timber and are fully insulated with KingspanTM thermal insulation boards (or similar).

The interior walls are lined with FSC NeatmatchTM Moisture Resistant MDF interior wall board ready for decoration and our roof system is finished with Firestone EPDM single piece rubber membrane roof covering complete with purpose made verges and gutter trims finished in black. Black uPVC guttering and downpipes are provided as required.

Advising you at every step

On our initial phone call we will establish the size and style of garden office that you are looking for. A CAD drawing can then be created. The next step is to come & survey your site & give you an idea of what you will need to stand the garden office on. Our team can advise you on different types of foundations and bases and give an idea of the sort of costs involved.
Some people want to provide their own base and some want us to provide the base for them. In most cases our Garden Rooms come within permitted development and will not require permission. However, if you do require planning we have an Architect who can give you information regarding planning permission as well as deal with your local council if you want him to.

Every component we use in our Cabin Master garden offices is guaranteed for quality and durability. Each building comes with a 10-year workmanship and labour guarantee, plus the guarantees of each individual component or building material included. Below are some typical examples:

  • 10 year guarantee on building materials.
  • 1 year metalwork guarantee (including hinges, handles and ironmongery).
  • 10 year guarantee on UPVc doors.
  • 10 year guarantee on window frames.
  • 4 year guarantee on glass window units

To build our garden offices we make use of only the best raw materials and building components, and fully qualified local contractors.

  • Timber: Forest Stewardship Council Approved timber suppliers.
  • Roofing: For flat roofs we use high performance EPDM rubber roofing. For sloping roofs we use Kerbit SBS roofing shingles.
  • Doors & Windows: Double glazed, energy efficient uPVC doors and windows for peak energy efficiency.
  • Insulation: High quality silver-backed foam insulation from Celotex, Kingspan, Extratherm or similar.
  • Finishing: FSC approved MDF interior boards with Neatmatch damp resistant coating.

The cost of delivery and fitting depends on the size of your office, where you live, transportation distance and how many people you need to set up your garden office.
