NEXT GENERATION OF HOME OFFICE WORKERS BOUND FOR A ROOM WITH A VIEW
Start-up company directors will soon be venturing outdoors with the assistance of some fresh thinking that aims to put a welcome twist on the concept of working from home.
Garden offices have already been a huge success in Australia and Europe, but UK company New Forest Log Cabins Ltd (www.newforestlogcabins.co.uk) are ready to introduce the idea to the traditionally British housebound operation. The advantages to an outside office are numerous with less clutter in the home, a detached environment without distraction and, presumably, a room with a view.
"People in Britain never seem to consider an alternative to converting one of their spare rooms into what often turns out to be a cramped, work-prohibitive cubby-hole," says Sales Director John Rudd. "Moving your place of work to the garden not only saves interior space but gives the owner a real sense of differentiation between office and home."
A fully functional office environment can be constructed in under two weeks and with many of the cabins not requiring planning permission the installation process is surprisingly simple.
All products are remarkably cost effective and range from 4m by 4m home office cabins to 8m by 4m luxury cabin, with all of the finished structures fully customised to the purchaser's exact specification. The next stage is to transform the empty space into a place of work; lighting, power sockets, phone jacks, routers and double-glazing are just some of the features and utilities that can be easily included.
"One of the major concerns of the British public is the weather," adds John. "It is assumed that outdoor offices are a preserve of sunnier climes and less severe winters. This is ridiculous. Our team ensures that customers are aware of seasonal changes so that all cabins can be heated, insulated and generally protected from the elements."
Although many of the more popular cabins can be easily selected from our online catalogues, a growing area of interest in the UK is the bespoke outdoor office. The big difference is that our log cabins are hand built and have many advantages over conventional offerings such as exceptional value for money, low environmental impact and are beautiful to look at as well as being ecologically sound. New Forest Log Cabins have a great design team available to create the cabin to meet your specific requirements and to quickly and comprehensively advise on the most suitable structure for the space available.
With home offices already shooting up across the rest of Europe, 2011 should be the year when Britain finally starts to catch up.
