Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a garden office cost?
There is no defined cost for a garden office, as such, as each building is designed around you. The cost of a garden office can start from around £5000 depending on the size of it, and the utilities provided. As a rough guide, you could be looking at around £1000 per square metre. As many of our garden rooms are bespoke, costs have been between £10000 – £20000 as an average.
Do you need planning permission for a garden office?
The majority of garden offices are considered to be permitted development, meaning that you do NOT require planning permission. There are a few caveats to that, depending on the distance to the property boundary, and the height of the building. If you intend to have sleeping accomodation in the building, this will be different.
Do garden offices add value to house?
Absolutely! Room space is an asset, and homeowners are always looking to increase square footage. With many people working from home, an office in the garden adds real value to the homeowner, which inevitably adds benefit to a buyer. We estimate that a garden office can add approximately 5-10% to the value of your property.
Is a garden office tax deductible?
The building itself isn’t tax detuctible, but there are allowances you can apply for that relate to working from home.
Can you put a toilet in a garden office?
Yes you can. As each garden building is bespoke, some clients want running water and sanitary utilities, so adding a toilet and wash basin is absolutely possible.
