Working from home has many benefits, but it can sometimes be a struggle to stay focused and not to get carried away with the perks of being at home. A great way to achieve this is to create your own garden office in one of our fantastic log cabins just at the bottom of your garden.
At Cabins Unlimited we are positive that we can not only find you the perfect sized cabin but also one that matches the look and feel of your garden and your home, whether you are looking for a traditional office log cabin such as the EV York or a more more contemporary office log cabin such as the Barbados 3. Once you have chosen your log cabin, waited patiently for it to be delivered and then installed the building next up comes the task of taking the blank log cabin canvas and creating you ideal home office space.
So what do you need in a log cabin office? Here are some suggestions you may want to consider.
A space to work on
To achieve a creative and productive day you are going to need a surface to work on so its not surprising that first up on the list of things to buy will be a desk. How big or the design of that desk will of course depend on the placement of widows, how much working space you need, what you need the desk for and the shape and style you like. Whether you go for a curved desk, a large desk or one with lots of drawers make sure there is enough space for the most important thing – your cup of tea or coffee.
A way to motivate and organise
If you’re working by yourself its important to keep track of what you have achieved so far, what you have to do and what your end goal is and this is where a planner comes in. When choosing a planner its important to choose something that you know works for you. There are many programmes available now such as Wunderlist and Day Viewer that allow you to add in meetings, inventory and deadlines as you go as well as those with the ability to sync across multiple devices. Alternatively, if you are like me and have a serious addiction to stationary you may work better using a paper planner.
A place for your bits a bobs
Once you are all organised you will need a place for all your bits and bobs. We wouldn’t recommend fixing shelving to your log cabin walls due to the natural movement of the logs but book shelves are a cheap and convenient place to store folders, books and other items of stationary.
A nice comfortable chair
The average time spent at work is 8 hours, so if your going to be sat working for 8 hours its important to invest in a nice comfortable chair.
