A guest blog from The Home Office Company about choosing a garden office.
In the late 1990’s when garden offices first started to become popular there were only 1 or 2 companies in the market; since then, the rise in the numbers of homeowners seeking to add more space to their homes without the upheaval of moving house has increased and so too have the numbers of companies jumping on the bandwagon.
A garden office, be it stand alone or attached to the house must obviously be constructed as fit for purpose; so if you are intending to use your room all year round, then your garden building must be able to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Unlike conservatories, which can become more like a greenhouse in the hot summer months and a refrigerator in winter, properly insulated garden buildings will need very little additional heating and only the opening of a door or window for cooling.
Building regulations stipulate that glazing must allow for conservation of fuel and power, and give protection against impact so keep an eye out for the likes of Pilkington K-glass, one of the toughest and best insulated glazing solutions available.
Buildings offering insulated walls, floors and ceilings should also be at the top of your shopping list. Whilst they may cost a little more, this all-round insulation is a must if you are to be able to fully enjoy your garden building 24/7, 365 days a year. This insulation (which must be CFC-free) will also give superb sound insulation if you have a budding musician in the family!
And don’t think that thick walls are the answer- some of the best insulation materials on the market are less than 3 inches thick and give the same or better insulation than walls approaching 12 inches in thickness PLUS you don’t lose masses of floor space!
So whether your taste is traditional or modern, big or small, the perfect combination of style and comfort is out there.
The Home Office Company offer a range of fully insulated garden offices, visit their website for more information.
The Home Office Company have sent us details of the latest use for their versatile garden buildings – a sunroom attached to the house.
Built to the same high standards as their Home Offices this sunroom offers many benefits over a traditional conservatory, where a conservatory needs a brick wall to sit on The Home Office Company’s design means that walls can be glazed from floor to ceiling, maximising light and framing views of the garden. Traditional conservatories can easily overheat in summer and loose all their warmth through the roof in winter but this sunroom benefits from solid, insulated roof which means the sunroom will be comfortable to use all year round.
The traditional style of The Home Office Company’s buildings is favoured by planners and they are available in 9 standard colours and a range of bespoke colours. The Home Office Company’s buildings are low maintenance being finished in a hard wearing paint finish.
Designed for year round use, buildings from The Home Office Company have a traditional timber frame and a modular design that means solid insulated panels can be mixed with floor to ceiling glazed panels to create a unique building solution. For added performance all glass is toughened Pilkington K glass which is the equivalent of triple glazing. All buildings come pre wired with consumer unit, double sockets, spotlights and telephone socket.
So, forget a conservatory and consider a sunroom attached to your house from The Home Office Company. For more information visit The Home Office Company website.

SIP’s which stands for Structural Insulated Panel’s are becoming a popular option in garden office construction. SIP’s are replacing the use of traditional timber frames in garden office construction, and offer considerable savings on materials, construction time and costs.
SIP’s also offer better thermal and acoustic insulation than timber frames. In traditional timber framed buildings the insulation is normally fitted between the timber framework, this is a perfectly acceptable method of insulating a garden office but does mean that the areas where the timber studs, joists or rafters are located is not insulated. As wood is a natural insulator a timber frame does have some natural insulating properties, but it’s not as good as a building which is sheathed (wrapped) in insulation.
To overcome this problem a timber frame can have a layer of insulation fixed to the outside, this overcomes the problems with ‘cold spots’ (areas with no insulation) where the timber frame is. This is a viable solution but can end up creating a very thick wall to meet Building Regulation u-values.
Structural Insulated Panel’s form comparatively narrow wall whilst achieving low u-values (the lower the u-value the better performing). SIP’s are basically a sandwich of structural wood sheathing and rigid insulation. Because there is no timber framework bridging the insulation, there are no ‘cold spots’ and a building built with SIP’s is enveloped in insulation and therefore highly thermally efficient.
As well as offering good levels of thermal insulation SIP’s also offer improved acoustic insulation, this is a particularly important factor in a small building such as a garden office. If you are working in a garden office you don’t want to be disturbed by the noise of rain on the roof, or for your neighbours to be able to hear the contents of a private telephone conversation! Because there are few joints and therefore gaps for sound to escape a SIP’s constructed garden office is acoustically efficient.
SIP’s are normally made from OSB (orientated strand board) which is an engineered wooden product; basically flakes of wood are glued together in different directions which creates a very strong sheet. This sheet is then laminated (glued) to a sheet of rigid insulation like two slices of bread and a filling, this sandwich forms an incredibly strong panel which is suitable for use in load bearing applications.
Door and window openings are cut into the SIP’s in the factory so SIP’s construction has a high level of precision. Floors, walls and roofs can all be built with SIP’s which means a garden office framework can be constructed in a matter of hours.
Channels for plumbing and electrics can be inserted into the panel in the factory, but most commonly a utility void is created, this is formed by attaching battens to the inner side of the SIP’s which offset the internal linings and thus hide the cables and pipes for a professional finish.
Because of the speed of installation, thermal efficiency and efficient use of materials SIP’s are the future of garden office construction. Garden office companies already adopting this construction method include Pod Space and Vivid Green.
The bueaty of a home office is that you are able to get to work – no matter what the weather – you can even stop and build a snowman on the way!
Garden rooms such as those by The Home Office Company are designed for year round use, even on cold days like today! The Home Office Company use state of the art technology to build their rooms, layers of structural steel and foam insulation make up the wall and roof panels, and the large expanses of glass are also thermally efficient being glazed with performance Pilkington K double glazing. Pilkington K is a special coating on the glass which radiates the warmth from the sun back into the room in winter.
