With the rise of flexible working in the workplace and more people than ever starting up their own businesses, the dream of working from home is becoming a reality for many. Read how creating your own home office in a garden log cabin can be the productivity answer you’re been looking for!


While I’m sitting in standstill traffic in rush hour on a Monday morning, usually the only thing I can think of is how great it would be to work from home. When your commute will be from your house to the garden, the longest delay you’ll experience is waiting for the kettle to boil for your morning coffee! Sounds like a dream doesn’t it? We’ve put together the key benefits for working from home and how we can help bring that dream to life!


Benefit #1: Shorter Commute Times

In the UK, the average commute time is just shy of an hour – that’s two hours per day, just spent stuck travelling to work. By working from home, you can cut your commute time right down, leaving you more time working on tasks that will bring in money, or spend more time with your family.

Benefit #2: Cut Costs

While investing in an office cabin is a cost to consider, it will more than pay for itself in saved costs. By commuting less, you will spend less in car fuel and costly maintenance repairs – or if you use public transport, you’ll save on ticket costs!

By not having to rent an office space, you can save on costly overheads of running a business by working out of your Log Cabin office.

Benefit #3: Reduce Home Costs

If you’re running a business primarily from your home, you can deduct a percentage of your home expenses against your business income, reducing the costs of running your home!

Benefit #4: Achieve Work/Life Balance

While it may seem like nothing more than a pipe dream for many people, working from home gives you all the power.

Get your tasks done for the day and then go attend the Sports Day or Doctors appointment without feeling guilty or upsetting your boss!

Benefit #5: Make It Your Own

By keeping your office space separate to your home, you can create a personal space that you feel comfortable and relaxed enough to be productive.

Cabins come in all shapes and sizes, so you can tailor your office to suit you. Choose the number of windows, doors, roof lights – pretty much any feature you can think of is customisable!
