A room of one's own: Why everybody needs a garden office


 An excellent piece in the Guardian by Heidi Scrimegeour asks "many small business owners run their operations from a corner of the kitchen table, but could the lack of a dedicated work space hold a business back?" And basically, with various examples, the answer is 'Yes'. Here's a snippet:
Carl Reader, author of The Startup Coach, is unsurprised by my delight at having a room of my own in which to work. He’s firmly of the view that you need a dedicated room free of distractions to run a successful business from home. “It takes an inordinate amount of time to regain your focus once you’ve been distracted at work, and the distractions at home can be even more invasive than those in an open-plan office,” he says. “A separate work space also makes it easier to take your mind off business when you’re not working, which in turn boosts productivity.”
And for fans of the 'shoffice' useage, it also contains what I suspect is the first ever use of the term 'ploffice' - children’s playroom + office.

Garden office wi-fi


I've had various conversations this week on Twitter again about garden office wifi so click the link to see how Phil Thane has sorted out his shedworking electonics (and in diagram form above).

Dragon Proof Your Shed – The Adventures of Sir Tristan Trimetals

Modern-day metal shed provider Trimetals was founded in 1967, but it has teamed up with comic book artist Steve Beckett (a regular contributor for publications such as the Beano and The Dandy) to tell the tales of Sir Tristan Trimetals – a legendary ancestor and knight who battled evil through the use of honour, chivalry, and metal sheds. Look out for a new one every month...
