Tips for Creating the Perfect Home Office
However, it can be pretty challenging to create the right atmosphere for your office. Even if you have an extra room—which many don’t—it still needs to be located away from children and pets. That’s a tall order, so you might consider designing a separate office space for your backyard.
Here’s a quick guide for turning a Heritage portable building into your dream home office.
Find out if you need a permit.
Always check with your city before purchasing a portable building and see if you need a permit.
Choose the right building.
Think through what you’ll need for your office space. Do you need a lot of natural light to compare images, artwork, etc.? Then, pick a style with lots of windows, like The Shaw Island. Do you need to store a lot of files or office supplies? Then, maybe The Rainier and its two storage lofts will work best for you.
You should also make a list of all the furniture you’ll need so you can get a building big enough to suit your needs.
Take the weather into account.
You’ll be spending quite a bit of time in this home office, so make sure it stays comfortable. When ordering your building, opt to insulate the walls, ceiling, and floors. You should also choose insulated, vinyl windows and house doors with weather seals.
Finish out the inside.
Our craftsmen can frame interior walls if you need them. Yet, you’ll be responsible for hanging drywall and adding electricity or plumbing.
This is definitely the most fun part of preparing a home office. Paint the walls a color that makes you feel productive and add a desk and comfortable chair. Don’t forget to place a few potted plants around the room to make the atmosphere homier.
