A house buyers list used to include a location within a commutable distance to work. This requirement has now been replaced by a demand for two home offices. As a result, installing a charred timbers clad garden room would add a highly-desirable workspace that would give your property the edge.

The Property Wish List

This has been a year of change; we have all had to adapt and consider things from a new perspective. Remote working has been technically possible for years, however, it took a pandemic to instigate change. Having experienced the benefits of home working, many employers and employees are keen to avoid a return to the workplace.

Living in London, Manchester or any other major UK city is expensive. There is a premium to be paid for being close to employment opportunities with leading corporations. However, as remote working becomes a permanent possibility, many city dwellers are reassessing their options and looking to relocate.

Local Buckinghamshire Estate Agents are reporting a significant increase in the number of buyers and renters on their books. Without the need to commute to the office every day, they can purchase a bigger home away from the city. This offers the chance to experience a different pace of life.

Home Improvements to Boost Property Value

If you are preparing to sell, knowing what this influx of buyers and renters are looking for can inform wise home improvements. In addition to good schools, and a private garden, home offices are now a highly desirable feature.

In many cases, there is a need for two practical home office spaces; a spare bedroom and a garden room. Local company, Chiltern Relocation have written an article to corroborate this opinion. Their clients have been specifically demanding double home offices.

Installing a Charred Timber Garden Office

Until recently, a lawn and a border of bedding plants may have provided the ideal outdoor space. With the prospect of working from home, the garden office is on the wish list.

The important factor is that this external room is light, warm, comfortable and modern. It should be fitting for professionals and enable them to have everything at hand to support productivity. These buyers have the budget to demand quality. Charred timber clad garden rooms provide the perfect solution.

Exterior Solutions Ltd supplies our Shou Sugi Ban® range of charred timber cladding to architects, builders, master craftsmen and specialist garden building companies. This includes Into the Garden Room and Koto Cabins; take a look at their portfolios and you will see what we mean about high-end quality builds!

Unlike a shed from the local DIY store or a pre-fabricated design, these specialist teams create desirable timber garden buildings that are the envy of neighbours, colleagues and clients.

The charred timber cladding provides the ideal finishing touch. It looks amazing, whilst improving the insulation. This external wood cladding is weather-resistant, naturally deters wood burrowing insects and is low maintenance.

These bespoke garden buildings may provide the additional space and style that makes you fall in love with your home again. Such an installation might negate the need to move, but if you aim to attract the influx of prospective buyers, it ticks that box too.
