Many people visiting this site over the last few weeks, have found themselves working from home for the first time. As it looks likely that home working will become the new normal, they are exploring their options regarding building a garden office.
You can rent a fully insulated, comfortable to use all year round, garden office from £36.92 inc VAT per week. All of the rent paid is allowable as a business expense.
Booths Garden Studios are seeing increased interest in their garden office rentals, as Iain Wetherell from Booths commented:
“We have had almost 200 enquiries for our studios in the last month, and feedback from those that have had them installed has been really positive. It is often quite difficult to work within a family home, and this is an ideal solution. I think there is also something psychologically important in arriving at a separate working space from your home, even if you have only had to walk down the garden path!
Some of our customers have said they have saved money by renting, because it eliminated other costs such as business rates, travel costs and parking fees. Working from home also saves on wasteful commuting time, giving you more time to use as you please.”
Garden office rentals come in 4 sizes:

Permitted Development friendly garden office
The QCB range from Booths Garden Studios is designed to be Permitted Development friendly. It is 2.5m tall, so it offers the maximum flexibility when positioning the office in the garden.
The QCB garden office comes with its own foundation system, so you don't have to install a concrete slab before it is installed. When you are finished with the building, it can be cleanly removed from the garden.
Renting a garden office is working for lots of people. Booths Garden Studios are currently renting garden office space to an architect, beauty therapists, a screenplay writer, IT workers, graphic designers and wedding dress makers among others.
