It’s Autumn Garden Office Week next week

The best of working outside the house in a garden office

Living garden office roof - Maria VaralloGarden Office Week in April generated lots of interest, to the extent that companies that weren’t taking part started to use the Twitter hashtag #GardenOfficeWeek. We enjoyed being trendsetters, even if briefly!

So we thought an autumn version would be a nice idea, now that we’re closing home office windows and doors, putting on more clothes and thinking of ways to stay warm while working over the winter.

All blog posts next week will be from garden office suppliers on a range of topics including staying cosy when you work in the garden, the health benefits of a garden room, and how a studio was built on a beach for a family of artists.

This time we’re asking readers to join in as well, by sending us a photo of the place you work in the garden, whatever it may be. Ingenious home workers work in sheds, barns, stables, garages and conversions of all kinds of outbuildings as well as purpose-built garden rooms – even a row of school toilets!

It’s very easy to take part – just email us a photo of where you work in the garden along with about 100 words about it. Each photo will be published on the new Garden Office Gallery page that will be launched on Monday at the start of Garden Office Week.

So come back regularly next week for helpful information and inspiring pictures of the places home workers make for themselves away from the house.

As a taster, the photo at the top of the post shows the living roof of Kris Varallo’s shed, which is in Home Office Gallery 5, with a description of how it was created.

He and his wife Maria both work at home but keep to their own territory! Kris works in the shed and Maria in the house, as she explains in Is it hell working from home with your husband? Not when he has a shed to go to!
