Operation She Shed: Building a flatpack garden office

Here's one to keep an eye on, the first in an ongoing series by Caro Davies (who writes the The Listed Home, a British lifestyle blog) about building a flatpack garden office. The first post - Operation She Shed | #1 My Flatpack Garden Office - covers the whys and wherefores. Here's a snippet:

Now, if you’ve ever looked into garden offices, you’ll know that they come with a hefty price tag. For a decent sized building — and I wanted one at least 10 ft by 12 ft — they can start at a minimum of £3.5K and spiral upwards in cost from there. Good ones need insulating, lighting, heating.

We just didn’t have that kind of money to burn either so — after a lot of thought — we decided to go down the DIY route. So in December of last year — after much discussion — my boy and I decided to bite the bullet and buy a large shed, with the intention of turning it into a garden office.
