Garden office self-build guide

There's nothing better than a really detailed guide on how to build your own garden office and this is one of the best we've ever seen. Written by Luke who runs the Objectively Fun site, this step-by-step look at creating your own shedworking space is full of useful tips (including leaving the electrics to the experts), plenty of photos, and the kind of things that you actually need to know, such as exactly which tools you'll need for the job. He mentions that it might be available in the future in book form and that would be great to see. Here's a snippet:
Be prepared for a lot of effort. Your mindset has to remain positive because it’s very easy to be disheartened half-way through the build. Take small steps. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Call on experienced people for support. Even if it doesn’t feel like it’s going forward, it is. It’s just hard to see it when you’re doing the building. It’s a very rewarding process, but you just have to power through to get to that rewarding part.

  1. How to posts are great but they can be hard to follow if you don't maintain a positive mindset as you stated in the post. As an event professional, if I am planning a wedding the first I do is creating a wedding checklist in order to stay on track. For building a garden office like that, creating a checklist would be handy for sure! Also, I always use a free and online event planning software that allows me to work with my team. There are a lot of useful tools online for building an office too.
    Good luck
