With so many people working from home – or looking to expand their space – outdoor buildings have become more popular than ever. We take a look at a timber frame system that puts flexibility first…

The new office

Over the last year, many of us have had to get used to using part of our home as an office. Unless you have a custom-built space, this is far from ideal. You could be perched on the dining table in sight and sound of home-schooled children or trying to find space for your laptop on the kitchen island.

One great solution is to have your own timber frame building outside. JointKit specialise in systems that are completely customisable so you can have the home office that’s the right size both for your needs and your garden. With electric and insulation packs available for your choice of building and no concrete foundations, you could be set up and snug in days.

Have it your way 

What makes JointKit’s patented system so appealing is its flexibility. In addition to options around size and space, you can also choose window, door and roof types to ensure that the building not only looks how you want it to but is sympathetic to your home and existing outbuildings. If you don’t see what you need in their range, simply get in touch – they’ll design and build it for you.

It’s not just about home offices – their buildings work as annexes for guests, summer houses, studios, workshops and garages. Durability is key to all of these, which is why they only use sustainable construction grade timber.

The benefits

With a Jointkit timber frame building, you get more than additional space. You get a place that doesn’t require concrete foundations, giving you even more flexibility. You also won’t have to negotiate the tedious hurdles of planning permission, as it’s not usually required – the exceptions would be in conservation area and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There are other potential benefits too. If you’re buying the kit as a workspace, you may well be able to claim some of the cost back from the HMRC as part of your tax return.
