Garden Offices

Buying a garden office (also known as a garden office pod, office shed, or studio shed) is a fantastic investment for those looking to separate home and working life or struggling to find space when working from home.

Constructed from interlocking tongue and groove timber, you can use your garden office throughout the whole year. Not only will they bolster your productivity by enabling you to create a dedicated working space, but these garden buildings come in a range of styles, allowing you to select one that blends into your garden.

Garden offices: the better way to work from home

Many of us have had to adapt in recent years to working from home. Sometimes, the family home isn’t the best environment for working or we simply don’t have the space. With one of our garden offices, you can escape the noise and bustle of everyday life and focus on your own space filled with natural light.

Our range of stunning garden offices are all manufactured from wood and are available in a range of styles and sizes. These start at  10’x8’ but go up to 26’x16’ for those who need more space.  The smaller sizes are generally considered garden office pods or office sheds.

We also have a range of cladding styles, and window and door types to meet various budgetary requirements.

So, are garden office pods and garden offices the same?

A garden office is like a spacious, year-round workspace in your garden, offering various styles and year-round comfort. As you may have gathered from the information above about sizes, garden office pods (or studio pods) are generally considered more compact, detached workspaces, packed with luxurious features and insulation, perfect for focused solo work.

They are usually a higher quality build than an office shed. For example, our Forest Xtend 2.5 Garden Office is a great example of a garden office pod that comes with premium features such as SIP panel insulation, double-glazed UPVC window and door, and EPDM rubber roofing with a 50-year life expectancy.

What are the typical features of garden office pods?

Although some of the features below are typical of many of our garden offices, these all need to be present to be considered garden office pods:

  • Detached - most frequently these are entirely detached from the house
  • Electric powered - as they are to be used as a home office, they will typically be electric powered
  • Insulated - for work comfort and all-year-round use, garden office pods are insulated
  • Luxury - these are usually designed with luxury more expensive materials, such as UPVC windows and doors and an EPDM rubber roof
  • Small - garden office pods tend to be smaller and single room garden offices

What are the potential uses of garden offices?

Our garden offices come in a huge range of styles and sizes to fit your space. Not only are they fantastic for working from home, but they can also provide a studio for creative work or a calm space for yoga and other exercises. There are many other potential uses too, including a games room, kid's playroom, outdoor entertaining, reading room, snooker room, etc. These really are versatile garden buildings for use all year round.

Can I buy an office shed?

Yes, with the brand name of “Buy Sheds Direct” you can rest assured that we have an extensive selection of office sheds available as well as studio pods and larger garden offices. These are sheds, which can be used as offices. An office shed (or shed office) typically means using a shed as an office and having the usual shed storage space too, which is ideal for office storage, e.g.: filing cabinets, stationery, etc.

Of course, not all sheds are suitable for use as an office. The main requirement of the office sheds we list on this page is that they provide ample light, space and ventilation, to ensure you have a comfortable working space.

What about garden studio sheds? Are these a mix between office sheds and studio pods?

It can get confusing with all of these different terms used to describe what is essentially a garden office. There are actually quite a number of similarities between office pods and garden studio sheds. The reality is that not all sheds should be used for office work, it is all about picking the best model for you based on your needs and budget.

Garden studio sheds are simply a name given to a shed space for certain occupations, particularly hobbies and craft businesses, creative studios, pool & snooker rooms, hair salons as well as home offices. Compared to office pods, they are generally considered to be a lower-cost option.

A great example of a studio shed from our garden offices range would be the Palmako Solveig 4.5m x 3.3m Contemporary Garden Room Garden House. This absolutely stunning garden building is larger and cheaper than the Forest Xtend 2.5. It’s an exceptional build quality but doesn't come with all of the features expected of an office pod, such as UPVC windows and doors or SIP panel insulation.

Can I buy a log cabin as a garden office?

Yes, in fact garden log cabins make an ideal garden office. You can filter the products on this page to log cabins only by ticking the Cladding = Interlocking Logs option. Log cabins are well-insulated and warmer than many sheds. Making for an ideal garden office environment, choose from our vast range of log cabin garden offices for sale. These are available in a range of sizes (10'x6' up to 26'x16') and a range of budgets.

Optional extras

Look out for the following optional extras when buying from our garden offices range. These are not available in all garden offices, so please check each individually for specific availability:

  1. Base – upgrade the base with a premium base kit
  2. Installation – relax when you pay for professional installation services
  3. Rain gutter – direct the flow of rainwater into a water butt
  4. Roof upgrade – upgrade the roof with superior underlay and roofing material (e.g., upgrade from felt to an EPDM rubber roof)
  5. Solar lighting – buy a premium lighting kit to use your garden office at nighttime
