Shed working – office in the garden

Posted by: Geoff Davis In: DIY tips|Energy|Green Transport|Housing

Working from home save a huge amount of energy. The home office is usually in the (ex) spare room, but now small outdoor buildings, often with one room, can be insulated and heated easily. Wifi means the internet is always on in there. And you get a bucolic view. Also can have cup of tea whenever you like.

Use you DIY skills to build one from scratch or buy one and modify or adapt to suit.

Sun Microsystems reckon that 98% of a workers’ carbon footprint comes from the commute to work. England has a lower car commute level as we are a much more densely populated country but the principle is the same.

Home workers also use less electricity and paper than traditional offices with their endless meetings.
