Personal Workspaces Guide:

Garden Buildings

Has your family outgrown its home since the start of the pandemic? 

With more people now working remotely, garden buildings are a popular and cost effective method of extending usable space, without loosing a room. They also allow a separation between work and home as even a short walk down the garden path is enough time to breathe in some fresh air and refresh the mind.

3. Setting up your garden workspace

The Space


If you already have an established garden building, it is key that you assess its suitability for working. Factors such as lighting, electricity, insulation, and WIFI reach should all be considered. 

However, if you have come to the realisation that your home is not big enough for your remote working needs then looking to invest in a garden structure may be the best decision for you.

 


As one of our affiliate partners,  Slope Spaces  shares the Podia ethos when it comes to making the most out of your home.
Slope Space rooms either meet or exceed all areas of building regulations meaning that no formal applications or inspections are required. 
The "Big Brother" room measures 3600mm x 2400mm making it perfect for either multiple users or large executive bundles such as the  Elite .
If you are slightly more limited on space or just looking for something more compact, the "Little Sister" room is ideal for you and measures 2400mm x 2400mm. Bundles such as our  Micro or  Essentials   would suit this space perfectly.

The Configuration


Whilst garden workspaces offer a brilliant chance to escape the home and work somewhere different, contending with light, sound, and space restrictions mean that there is an art to getting your workspace just right.

Ideal Lighting


Lighting can be hard to get right in a room with so many windows. Position your desk so that light sources come in from the front or side. If you have the light directly behind you, you'll become silhouetted on video calls.


Distracting Noise


Surrounding noise from wildlife or neighbours can be a challenge, especially if you have your windows or doors open in the summer to keep cool. Use noise-cancelling headsets to keep calls private and uninterrupted.  


Professional Image



Ensure that your background is video conferencing ready at all times. After all, it's a garden room and not a garden shed! Try incorporating some nice prints, house plants, or simply use a neutral wall for a professional image.



Optimum Acoustics


Garden rooms can sometimes have bad acoustics with an echo or ringing sound, due to the sound bouncing off the glass doors and solid walls. You can combat this with adding soft furnishings, canvases, or even professional acoustic panels.
