Coming soon – Garden Office Week

All next week the blog is devoted to the joys of working in a garden office

Work from Home Wisdom - Garden Office WeekA little while back I thought it would be a nice idea to celebrate the arrival of spring with a week on the blog devoted to working in a garden office in spring – you know the kind of thing, flowers blooming outside, birds chirping and doors open to let in the sunshine.

Unfortunately it seems spring is running late this year, but we can still dream, both of a separate place to work close to home, and of warmer days.

And I know from the response to my Work from Home Offices Pinterest board that many home workers do dream of having a garden office. So if you’re toying with the idea, wondering how much it might cost, what the planning rules are, how long it would take to build and so on, Garden Office Week here on the blog from Monday 8 to Friday 12 April is a good place to start browsing.

Posts that week will be from garden office suppliers (and don’t forget to check out the featured companies on the right hand side of the site). There will be lots of activity on social media – Facebook, Pinterest, my new Work from Home Wisdom Tumblr account, as well as my perennial favourite, Twitter.

If you want to start right away, is a wonderful resource and does just what it says on the tin. It’s stuffed with information – things to think about before you buy, whether you need planning permission, how a garden office is put together, and a feature to help you choose the right one for your needs and budget. You can also buy a print copy of The Garden Rooms Magazine for relaxed browsing over a coffee or for bedtime reading!

Another excellent place for a bit of daydreaming if you fancy relocating to the end of the garden is, with its daily updates on everything relating to garden rooms, sheds and the people who work in them.

Come back next week to see and read about a selection of garden offices, ask questions in the comments, and start planning for your own garden office.
