BBC's strange report into the rise in garden offices

A day late and a dollar short, the BBC has finally caught up to the idea that people are working in garden offices in increasing numbers. It's gratifying to see that the suppliers they talk to have got overflowing order books, but it's a strange angle to take that only the wealthy can afford to go down the shedworking route and that you need to spend £30,000 to get a good garden office.

The article by Dan Ascher also features a garden office belonging to a £7.2m house in London which is for sale but not that helpful. And claims like "Once the domain of gardening glove-wearing, trowel-wielding pensioners, the garden shed has now become the scene of smart-casual Zoom calls" are just a bit glib and bizarre.
