Great Home and Garden Improvement Tips

Hi! My name is Gary and this is my home and garden improvement blog. My passion for working on my home and garden began when I bought my first house. It was a run down little place in the suburbs of Sydney. Even though the place was in a bit of a state, it was in a fantastic location. I spent many hours reading up on DIY and gardening tips before setting about improving the place. It was a lot of hard work but it was also a lot of fun. I learnt a lot during that time so I decided to start this blog.

Using Modular Building Systems to Make a Home Office: Five Ideas to Explore

by admin

Working at home has benefits as well as challenges. If your home office has recently degenerated into a hectic and unproductive zone because of your family, it's time to start thinking about modular building systems from places like Nova Portable Buildings. A modular office can provide you with more space, as well as more distance from your family. Here are some of the ideas you should explore:

Adding a modular extension

If you don't have enough room in your home to accommodate your office comfortably, consider adding an extension. If you use modular building systems, you can erect an extension faster than you may expect. Modulars come with all of the pieces ready to fit together and install. Instead of waiting weeks while contractors put together your extra room, you can look forward to an extension that can be finished in a matter of days. In fact, 15-story modular hotels have been built in as few as six days.

Building a modular office in your backyard

If you don't want to knock down a wall to your home, consider building a modular office in your backyard. This gets you under a separate roof from the rest of your family, potentially making it easier to focus on work. Depending on how much room you have in your yard, you can get a small "pod" or you can even have a modular garage built with a beautiful office above it.

Taking your office on the road

If you can't get peace and quiet at home, consider moving your office down the block, to the beach or to the next town. Modular systems don't have to be planted in one spot. They can actually be made into caravans so that you can work almost anywhere.

In the future, you may be able to drive your modular office to a caravan park, park it and then detach an attached car when you need to run errands or go buy a latte.  

Working on the roof

If you own an apartment building or if you have a single-family home with a flat roof, consider building a modular office on the roof. Talk with a contractor about how much weight your roof can handle, and then, consult with a modular-systems builder about the design options that are available.

Renting or buying an empty lot

Instead of renting an office space, consider renting an empty lot and parking your mobile modular office there. If you can afford to do so, buy an empty lot and erect a modular office there. This gives you the privacy of your own office but space from your family.
