OfficePOD is a prefabricated garden office space that is designed to be self contained and modular – allowing it to be easily installed in ones garden with minimal disruption.
Our clients based in Tring were downsizing from a larger property but wished to continue to work from home.
Mr Brace needed to get back to work quickly and looked at several companies before deciding to work with us at Green Studios because we could deliver everything required.  Near the top of the list was IT accessibility as lots of connectivity was required, in particular to be connected to the house. Living in a green belt area the Brace’s options were restricted by planning permission i.e. In particular low maintenance Aluminum framed windows were a top priority as was the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly materials.
This visually stunning self contained unit has resulted in increased productivity and a better quality of life for our clients.
Since we finished the installation Mr Brace has also fitted his own alarm, data and telecoms cabling and has hooked up a web-enabled infra-red security camera to the studio allowing him to log anywhere in the world and still see his garden office.

Cumbria-based Cartoonist Colin Shelbourn points out that not only has the area recently seen the worse snow storms since 1950, dozens of motorists overnighting in local schools and electricity cables tumbling down, his shed has grown shedicles.
A great post at Tiny House Blog by Benjamin Vine gives the rundown on The Stannexe (studio+annexe), a garage conversion in Hastings to be used as an artist's workspace with accommodation, designed by rpd architects. Smart Garden Offices is debuting a new range next week called The Suffolk Barn which they call "a unique blend of traditional architecture coupled with high specification construction", available in five different sizes and using the ISIS building system. Saturday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings, manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings. In an excellent piece about using your ears as well as your eyes when you're on holiday, David Hendy in The Independent talks about making a trip to the Walden location in Massachusetts of Godfather of shedworking, Henry David Thoreau.


Wednesday posts are sponsored by The Stable Company®, the UK's premier supplier of garden offices and garden rooms. Although our current business is still run by my wife and I, we wanted to have a cool space to work in. Today is the start of Anywhere Working Week 2013 organised by the fine folk at Anywhere Working to encourage people to try out shedworking, homeworking and any other kind of remote working you can name.
While infographics have been flavour of the month for a while, I've not come across (m)any about garden offices and shedworking.
Our collective staff eyes were caught by this rather nice Suffolk Barn model from Garden Affairs. We've talked before about when sheds go bad in windy weather and here's another example from the Ely Standard who published a set of photos by engineer Vassilis Papanikolaou who was driving out of Soham towards Newmarket on his way to work (sadly, he's not a shedworker) when a large shed was blown onto the road in front of him, forcing him to undertake an emergency breaking procedure.
Arguably the UK's most famous sculptor, Rachel Whiteread’s new show 'Detached' at the Gagosian gallery opening next month follows a familiar pattern, but while she largely made her name 20 years ago by making a full scale cast of the inside of a house, this exhibition will feature casts of empty sheds (including 'Untitled 2012' above) which, according to Ben Luke in the Royal Academy magazine, "radiate everyday poetry". Interestingly, Whiteread has a dedicated drawing studio which is detached from her sculpture studio. One of the trickiest things about shedworking is making sure that the garden office doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in the garden (unless you want it to stick out like a sore thumb of course).
Join our quest for exciting news and trends from the world of workspace design, innovation, technology and the startup ecosystem.
Email us about your office space, something cool you’ve seen, or any office-related topic you think is of interest! A garden room was the answer and an external office would mean fewer interruptions reinforcing it as a separate workplace.
In addition to this the garden office studio can easily be converted later to enjoy during their retirement.
There are events in Norwich today, Bristol tomorrow, Tavistock on Wednesday, Chelmsford on Thursday and London on Friday, all of which they'll be live blogging and tweeting.
The folk at Gembuild Garden Offices though have a nice one up at their site which is worth a look (though I think their estimate of the number of homeworkers is on the conservative side).


It comes with attractive curved doors and felt shingle roof (which they say gives the appearance of old clay tiles) and while it's being marketed as storage for a ride-on mower or children's garden den, we feel it would be ideal for shedworking too.
An interesting post on the Gembuild site includes an interview with RHS Gold medalist Melissa Jolly (left) who talks about what to think about when siting a garden office.
The hut pictured above measures 16' x 8 and has fitted bunk beds plus a kind of double bed in the front lounge area.
The show was a huge success attracting lots of attention to what truly was a stunning show piece.
Inside the OfficePOD provides a cleanly designed and comfortable workspace, key features include the innovative storage space which is unique in that it creates a stylish yet space saving solution. Interactive 3D drawings (used with their existing software) helped with the planning and decision stages and we were able to provide everything requested whilst echoing our client’s views on sustainability. The partition walls that created the utility room area were formed with a double layer of Fermacell and medium density rockwool for additional sound insulation. It's well worth a read as it covers issues such as having the building on show or keeping it hidden, aspect, access comfort and views. It featured our new corner window concept which received lots of positive feedback giving us the drive to feature again at next years Grand Designs Live, so watch this space!
Here's a snippet, Melissa talking about security:"Something else important is to be aware of security because offices and music rooms will contain expensive equipment and could be an easy target for burglars.
