With many more of us working from home due to changing working patterns from the pandemic, and some of these now being permanent changes, there is now a need more than ever for extra space in our homes. For many people, this might mean working with Construction Companies Manchester way such as www.piggottandwhitfield.co.uk/ to have an extension put in place, or perhaps a garden office built.
If you decide to go for a garden office, there are several things that you need to think about.
Location – the location of your garden office will probably depend on the suitability of the ground to be built on and any planning regulations that are in your area. In some cases, you might not be able to have this built within a certain distance of your boundaries.
Electricity – in order to be able to keep yourself warm in the colder weather, to have lights in your office and to be able to run your computer equipment you will need to think about an electricity supply. This can be factored in during the building stage of your garden office.
Internet Access – similarly to electricity, you will also need to think about how you are going to get internet access into this space so that you can work effectively.
Security – if you are going to be having equipment and other expensive items in your garden office, as well as any important documents, you will need to think about security, such as locks and perhaps even CCTV.
