If work from home permanently or occasionally you’ll know that after a while working at the kitchen table just doesn’t cut it. There are so many distractions – children, dogs, snacks! It can be hard to focus and easy to find excuses. Don’t get me wrong there are lot of amazing benefits of being able to work at home but most people will be more productive if they have a dedicated workspace.
With that said, I don’t have a spare room I can sacrifice for office space. Currently I have a little desk in an alcove at the top of the stairs, which is lovely. There’s just enough room for Matt & I to store our camera equipment at the side and some shelves where we keep paperwork.
In an ideal world I would love a garden office, not just for work but for hobbies too. I think it would be so lovely to have a special bright space to focus and be creative in. I know Matt would probably disappear there for hours editing videos!
Recently I’ve found myself dreaming of a garden office even more often as not only do our next door neighbours have a ‘man cave’ but the neighbours behind have just had a pretty impressive ‘shedroom’ installed too.We tend to think of garden sheds as little dark spaces designated for storage but they can be so much more! All of this construction around us has inspired me so i’ve been looking at the garden buildings for sale from GBC Group. They have such an amazing range, from sheds to log cabins and impressive double glazed structures.
I can definitely see myself here, typing away, trying not to get distracted by Facebook while Luisa plays in the garden. As you can probably tell my role in these decisions is pretty conceptual. I like to browse online for ideas, check out Pinterest for decor and generally daydream. It will be up to Matt to deal with practicalities like space, foundations, wifi and power supplies!
