It’s easy to run out of space at home. Maybe there’s a new arrival or perhaps people are stuck selling their home. They need some extra room, but with the housing market and the economy the way they are at the moment there just doesn’t seem to be any prospect of that any time soon. Nothing for it but to look at alternative solutions.
Anyone lucky enough to have a decent sized garden should look there for starters. And there’s certainly no need to think about an extension and the resulting hassle and expense. Eco friendly, sustainable garden buildings are the way forward as more and more people are discovering.
In many ways it’s nice to have somewhere with a bit of separation from the main house. It’s a quiet retreat where people can get away to work or indulge a hobby or pastime.
More and more people work from home. Telecommuters need a dedicated space where they won’t get disturbed by the rest of the family. Garden offices are a great solution. It’s a better bet again than a home office and it’s nice to be able to finish up, lock the door and “leave” work. Perfect.
Artists might like a studio where they can get creative and find inspiration away the mayhem of family life for a few hours. It’s a neat and affordable solution for anyone who needs more space for whatever reason.
So perhaps it’s time to put the moving plans on hold and forget about that extension for the time being. Affordable and environmentally friendly buildings make more sense. It’s great to be able to get more from that garden space and move activities out of the house to a dedicated office or studio. Finding more space at home doesn’t have to complicated or expensive.
