12ft x 8ft is a great size for a garden office. One person can work with space to spare for a comfortable chair and office storage. Alternatively, a 12ft x 8ft building is big enough for two people to work comfortably side by side.
In metric 12ft x 8ft works out as a 3.6m x 2.4m. So is equivalent to a good-sized spare bedroom. We have created these models using scale furniture to offer you an idea of the space a 12ft x 8ft garden office has.
12ft x 8ft low maintenance garden office
One of the leading names creating 12ft x 8ft garden offices is Booths Garden Studios. Booths offer QCB range in a 12ft x 8ft size. Interestingly, Booths Garden Studios offer the option of renting one of their QCB buildings. We hear this has been a hugely popular option with buyers during 2020.
This 12ft x 8ft Booths Garden Studio is an example of their QCB range. The Booths team have designed their buildings to be maintenance free for 25 years. This is where the QC in their range names comes from = quarter-century.
To ensure this low maintenance finish, the Booths team have chosen a palette of exterior finishes which stand the test of time without needing painting or repair. These include Plastisol coated steel cladding and UPVC doors, windows and trims.
A key feature of a Booths Garden Studio is the whole walls of floor to ceiling glazing that they can incorporate. The glazed walls are a mix of doors and windows.
The feature glazed walls can make a garden office feel even bigger than it is. A case in point being this micro office that the Booths team built a few months ago.
The wall of windows offers great views of the garden as you work. They also ensure a wonderfully light workspace — the natural light bouncing off the white walls and ceiling.
If you want to control the light levels or have some privacy. You can just drop the blinds that the Booths team fit.
Looking at the Booth Garden Studios website, a 12ft x 8ft QCB currently costs £10,940. As we mentioned earlier, you can also rent a QCB studio.
These prices are very good for a highly insulated garden office that will require little maintenance in the long term. Another benefit of this range is that the Booths team has systems to complete their buildings in just a day or two on-site.
