Has anyone got one in their garden? Did you build it from scratch or did you buy a bespoke office/studio?
We're moving house and we're not taking my outdoor art/ craft shed that we inherited when we moved in here with us and are hoping to put one in the garden of the new house. There isn't room in our new house for me to work and what I do is quite messy too.
So we've started looking online at basic sheds, and office cum studios that are insulated and have electrics. What would be more cost effective? Doing it ourselves or buying a bespoke one.
Any recommendation for people who sell them would be appreciated too.

It's something we considered for our place but haven't taken the leap. We're using the third bedroom as the office (both self employed, different businesses). I've seen some good ones but you get what you pay for.

Lots of resources and links on shedworking.co.uk

My father in law has recently bought an ex demo one from a local manufacturer in Cornwall and is very pleased with it. Still cost north of 15k not including groundwork for utilities/levelling, and decor.

I suspect you'd save quite a bit in heating costs if you spend up front on better quality walls, roof and insulation, even before you thing of your comfort, and ensuring the building isn't damp.
