Making your garden office fit into your garden

One of the trickiest things about shedworking is making sure that the garden office doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in the garden (unless you want it to stick out like a sore thumb of course). An interesting post on the Gembuild site includes an interview with RHS Gold medalist Melissa Jolly (left) who talks about what to think about when siting a garden office. It's well worth a read as it covers issues such as having the building on show or keeping it hidden, aspect, access comfort and views. Here's a snippet, Melissa talking about security:
"Something else important is to be aware of security because offices and music rooms will contain expensive equipment and could be an easy target for burglars. To address this, think of installing a PIR light, which will go on if anyone approaches the building, or of placing the building so it can’t be seen from outside the property."
