Whether it’s for business or pleasure, a little extra room nestling in a green space, could make all the difference to your lifestyle

If your home is in need of a little extra space, in today’s world you have many options. Whether you need extra room for guests, a home office or a retreat to find solitude, there’s a perfect solution out there.

There’s no doubt that working from home has very much become part of our lives over the past 12 months. But, while many people will soon be returning to their daily commute and looking forward to actually seeing work colleagues in the office, as opposed to virtually, many will also be continuing to work from a living room sofa, kitchen table or converted bedroom – not ideal!

On a positive note, working from home can be a joy. But it can also be a nightmare too if you haven’t the room for a dedicated workspace. With the changing times have come many and varied solutions to creating the perfect home office – from traditional hand-crafted shepherd’s huts to ultra-contemporary pods.

And, if you’re not one of the millions working from home, you may just need some extra space for forthcoming visitors, for crafting, storage or an indulgent personal retreat.

Bang on trend is a bespoke timber shepherd’s hut that can be sited in your garden as not only an attractive focal point, but a moveable room that can be anything you want it to be – an office, a bedroom, a hideaway or a holiday let.

Alternatively, a modern-day pod can be a super-efficient way of working from home or it can also be styled to simply create extra room for your household – and like a shepherd’s hut, if you have land, you could develop a whole new business around the high-end holiday let market.

From garden rooms and lodges to huts and pods if you’re in need of extra room and are thinking creatively, any of these can be adapted and styled to suit your needs. Surrounded by such beautiful countryside, there are many and varied craftsmen who can create the perfect little living space to suit you, your lifestyle and your business.
