Creating a home office in a garden room has always been a popular choice for these versatile buildings, but these offices aren't limited to solo desk workers. They can serve as successful business premises, accommodating multiple desks and providing ample storage space for goods and materials.
Finding the perfect commercial unit for your business can be a challenge. Often, you'll end up compromising on either location or size. Sometimes the space is too vast, other times, too limited. Not to mention, the high rents!
Contrastingly, with a garden room, you can customise the size and features to cater to your unique requirements. It's a win-win: enjoy the perks of working from home while sticking to a routine of going out to work.
Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited crafted this 7m x 3.5m building, which has become the ideal workplace for clients in Nottingham. Priced at just under £26,000, this garden office is not only functional for business but also enhances property value and offers flexibility for a diverse range of future uses.
Example of the Crusoe Sanctuary Fusion
This spacious garden office is an example of Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited's Sanctuary design, enhanced with their unique Fusion concept. The Fusion concept enables a blend of two low-maintenance finishes, proving a cost-effective choice compared with a completely Cedar clad building.
With the Fusion option, the prominent elevations are finished with Western Red Cedar, while the less visible walls feature exterior-grade plywood. This plywood can be finished in Anthracite Grey, harmonising perfectly with the door and window frames.
A close-up view of another Crusoe Sanctuary with the Fusion finish reveals Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited's precision in detailing the transition between the two finishes. Both Cedar and plywood offer a long-lasting finish with minimal upkeep.
The Sanctuary range boasts an attractive glazing configuration. A combination of large sliding doors and two tall windows adds character when viewed from inside and out. The doors and windows are double-glazed, house quality Anthracite Grey uPVC units.
The overall design and exterior finishes used by Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited help the garden office merge seamlessly with the garden. The fact that the garden around the new building looks so good is a testament to the care that the Crusoe team take to maintain the site during their builds.
A Bright, Contemporary Workspace
A glimpse inside shows a bright, modern workspace. Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited finish their interiors with high-spec plastered and decorated walls and ceiling, combined with durable laminate flooring. This crisp finish, complemented by the extensive glazing, creates a naturally bright workspace.
Each garden office by Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited is meticulously built from scratch on-site. Their dedicated installation team builds a traditional insulated timber framework, ensuring a solid core structure. Additional layers of material, both internal and external, ensure the space is a comfortable place to work, all year round.
Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited sends their experienced electrician to site. Their standard electrical specification includes power sockets, recessed internal LED downlights, external lighting, and a 2kw wall-mounted electric radiator. Additional features, like data cabling from your home router to the office, can be incorporated, meaning you can connect to anywhere in the world from your garden office. Unlike many competitors, Crusoe Garden Rooms Limited's electrician handles the electrical connection between your home and the garden office, as part of the quoted price. This means as the Crusoe team leaves site, you are left with a ready-to-use workspace.
