Benefits of a garden office building
Garden office buildings are one of the most sought after items for people looking to move house. They are a great addition to living space, and also improve the sale-ability of the house, whilst increasing the property value, in most cases, by more than the cost of the building. The extra space is also enticing to prospective purchasers looking for a smaller house in a better location.
We all know that a garden office saves time and money on commuting, and can pay for itself in as little as three years. However the main benefit is that it provides a separate working environment, well away from the natural disruptions of the household. Not only will a garden office benefit you, but it will future proof your property in case you are looking to up sticks in the future.
How much do I need to spend?
The question on everyone’s lips is how much will it cost. Did you know you can get a garden office building that it fully insulated for year round use from just £7500.
And that includes double glazing, electrics, insulation, and assembly… so that’s not as much as you think.
Most projects cost between £15k and £20k, by the time you factor in the groundwork, connections, decoration and furniture, with the higher amount leaving a contingency for landscaping the garden afterwards. There are plenty of designs to choose from – just select the one that suits your taste and configure it online.

Planning guide for Garden Office Buildings
Domestic garden rooms and offices can usually be installed without the need for planning permission. Providing the building is 2.5m high or less and behind the front line of the house, it should be classed as permitted development. Please note that if you are in AONB locations or have a listed building, the rules may change.
If you require a building taller than 2.5m high, you will need to be 2m from a boundary, or apply for planning permission. Choosing the planning route isn’t always as intimidating as it sounds, however you will need some elevation drawings and some location maps to accompany your application. We can assist you with the elevations and overhead drawings (subject to a £200 fee), whilst the location maps are readily available online, via the links from the planning portal website.
