The ability to work from home is becoming more accessible to more people brought about by the internet and fast broadband being available in most locations.
While cost is of course a primary factor, comfort and residual value come into play as it could be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house. This home office cabin was designed for a talented garden designer freeing up her family home of business clutter and creating separation between work and family time.
The cabin is a modest 4x5m giving our client the space to stretch out plans and accommodate a collection of books and samples.
A full oak frame was wrapped with a SIPs style well insulated walls and finished internally with painted boarding and on the exterior with larch cladding. The profiled coloured steel roofing was driven by costs and came with 100mm of insulation and was very quick to install. The plan is to replace the metal roof with a high quality slate roof in the future, when funds allow.
The space is warm and comfortable and could double as an additional bedroom for the main house.
This cabin was built within permitted development rights so was restricted in height to 4m.
We could think of no where better to commute to for a day’s work!
