Insulated garden office

The world of work: Considering an Insulated Garden Office?

It’s fair to say that the world of work has changed dramatically, even in the last five years. Working from home, which used to be a rarity, is now commonplace, and as home working arrangements have become permanent, people are now looking at their space and realising the importance of a dedicated place to work.

The events of 2020 and 2021 transformed the way that so many businesses operate, and although things are back to “normal” now, it doesn’t seem dramatic to say that things will never be the same again.

Enter a wooden garden office or timber studio from Shields Buildings – whether you work from home, or you want somewhere to practice your hobby or enjoy something you love, we can help.

Each studio and office we produce is bespoke, handmade and fully insulated, and can provide the perfect garden escape for whatever you need it to.

So, what’s the difference between an office and a studio?

Generally, studios are slightly larger buildings with an apex roof and vaulted ceiling, giving a lovely airy feeling inside.

Offices are lower in height with a low profile apex or pent roof with a flat ceiling, the perfect choice for keeping under the height limit for Planning Permission.

Whether you opt for a studio or office, the combination of timber boarding, the latest composite insulation boards and damp-proof membranes ensure the interior is always warm, dry and cosy.

The highest specification of coated glass is used in the double-glazed sealed units ensuring a heat-efficient building, while the electronic panel wall heater with built-in thermostat will keep you toasty, and the stylish LED lighting ensures you can focus on whatever you need to.

Lots of customers also opt for a solid wood floor in oak, which gives a lovely, affordable feeling of permanent luxury, while a canopy or over the doors helps to keep the weather at bay.
