Working from Home


Having had a couple of enquiries this week about attic conversions, it got us thinking about a potential future of more working from home; perhaps as part of whatever our ‘new normal’ will be, on the other side of all of this.

There are numerous ways of carving out a quiet area to create a great working environment. And hide from the kids……
Loft and garage conversions, garden offices, mezzanines (can use the roof void), or extensions.

We’ve pulled together a few ideas on a Pinterest board so click on the image below and be inspired

Depending on what you want to do, you may be able to achieve your goal under ‘Permitted Development’ rights; without needing full planning permission! If so, we advise always to achieve a Certificate from the Local Planning Authority to confirm your project is compliant (important for any future sale of the property and for insurance purposes).

Of course not all enhancements require enlarging your property; we often work to rationalise the space you have to make it more user friendly.

We are very happy to advise, so please feel free to give us a call or drop us a message on your Working from Home requirements.
