What is a Garden Office Pod?
A garden office pod is a stand alone, work from home space that is usually located in a small garden or back yard. Since the pandemic, working from home has become much more normal, especially as modern communications makes home working easy and efficient. The explosion in the amount of people that have the desire to work from home means that the garden office pod has grown as the popular design for those looking for a small dedicated outside work space for year round use. Here at Warwick Buildings we can help you if need a cheap garden office pod, or a small garden office pod at a cost effective price, as we deliver and install the best garden office pods in the UK.
Our Garden Office Pods
Our work from home pods are designed to be used all year round, as an additional space in the garden for working at home. Because they are fully insulated, include double glazing and electrics, it means that you can use it for a dedicated work space, away from the main distractions in the house. Both Micro Pods and Garden Pods are small garden office buildings that only need a small heater in the winter for it to be your super- cosy, providing you with a super efficient work space that you can simply lock up and leave. We offer plenty of choice in the garden office pod world from our set designed 'Box Office', the 'Posh Pod' known as the Elegance, the Garden Office Pod, and the Micro Pod range. Find out more here.
Benefits of a Garden Office Pod
If you already work from home, you will be acutely aware of the distractions that working in the spare room, kitchen or lounge, still induce. What with the washing machine, TV, kids, pets, and the constant reminder of the chores, how people get to concentrate without dedicated work space is certainly a frustration to both employers and employees. If you don't work from home yet, the costs of commuting is not only monetary, but also impacts on the time you have with your family. And talking of family, the cost of childcare could easily challenge the cost of a small garden office. So whilst having a pod in the garden is not as expensive as you think, it actually increases the value of your home, and makes it much more attractive to potential buyers if you intend to move on in the future. Remember, it isn't a garden shed that you'll be working from, this is a dedicated work space in the garden that can be set up to inspire you, giving you the perfect lock up and leave office space in the garden.
But how much are they?
Our small garden office pods start at just £7500 for a fully insulated garden office with double glazing and electrics. Compare that to the average commuting cost for a Ford Focus driver which is £4,800 per year (totaljobs.com) and you can see just how economical the garden pod is. Not only does it add value to your home, but it could pay for itself in less than two years.

Work From Home With an Outside Garden Office Pod

A Home Office wthin your garden
A garden room can be used to make a fully-featured home office, with everything you could need to work from home. A garden office can help your work-life balance, with a clear divide between your home and your workspace. It can also boost your mood to work within your garden, with stunning views and fresh air around you. A larger outdoor garden room could even be used to run a home business, with enough space for multiple employees to work.
Lets have a look inside
How do I decorate my Garden Office Pod
The back wall looks amazing as a feature wall, especially with contrasting skirting and trims. You could even add your own Acupanel to the ceiling (from the Wood Veneer Hub)which is what our customer has done to finish the inside of this garden pod.
Make it personal
Design a garden pod that works for you
This garden pod has a sliding door that opens up the middle of the building, and also features a side screen in the corner to get the most of the natural light from the garden. Vertical cedar cladding makes this pod look amazing.

Garden Pod Specifications
100mm thick cassettes create a solid foundation to work from. Tanalised framing is filled with 75mm Celotex and lined with 15mm WBP plywood. Cross battens underneath provide an airflow between the concrete pad and the floor. Laminate flooring finishes the inside to provide a smart, easy clean finish.
Structurally Insulated Panels
Scandinavian redwood framing provides the basis of the wall structure with vertical studwork at 600mm centres. Externally lined with a vapour barrier before the customers choice of cladding is added. The cavity is filled with a choice of Celotex or Acoustic Rockwool insulation before being internally lined with the vertical groove lining board.
5 Layer System
Roof cassettes are 120mm thick giving a 9mm birch faced plywood interior finish. The 100mm framing creates a cavity for the Celotex or Rockwool insulation before a 12mm OSB board is fitted on top. The roof is skinned with a breathable membrane before covered with a plastisol coated metal roof for a 30 year lifespan. Colour coded aluminium trims complete the sleek look of the roof.
Sloping wall design
Buildings sizes are external dimensions. Please remove 200mm from the width and the depth to calculate the internal dimensions. Garden office pods are 2200mm high at the front of the building and 2000mm at the back of the building. This is tall enough at the back for a majority of Ikea office storage equipment.
Integrated wiring within panels
Hidden neatly in the structural panel is all the wiring for the inclusive two double sockets, and the light switch. All faceplates are recessed, as are the spotlights or LED panel that are housed in the roof cassettes. Additional sockets can be purchased, and the location of the plugs and switches can be requested prior to manufacture.
Who builds the Garden Pod
There's no need to worry about what sections go where as we've included the assembly within the price. As long as you are there to show where it is located in the garden, our team will install the new pod in the garden onto your concrete or paving slab base.
Does a garden pod need a base
The garden office pod will require a ground supported base in the form of a concrete pad or paving slab area. This will provide a solid foundation for the new office and needs to be flat, smooth and level. Alternatively ground screws can be used to create a wooden platform which acts as the garden pod floor.
Can you do the base
In house solutions
Concrete pads and paving slab bases are the best solution for groundwork, and we do have plenty of contacts to create a suitable base for you. If however, you prefer to keep it in house, we offer a ground screw base to customers within a 30 mile radius.
