Cost of setting up a garden office

In order to assess the cost of setting up an impressive garden office, let us take into account a small one man office that measures approximately 2.2m X 2.2 m. Also, a great office needs to be equipped with proper insulation, has doors and windows that are made of good quality material, and is well illuminated with properly placed lights. If you are planning to set up a garden office for this kind of a set up, you will have to roughly shell out £6,000 (this was the cost that was estimated as per rates obtained in the year 2014). This figure mentioned in the aforesaid line also includes VAT.

However, there is one catch here. You just need to find out whether or not the cost of setting up the foundation is also included or not. If not, you will have to pay some extra cash for the same. So, you can assess the cost of setting up an impressive garden office just by estimating the cost that is involved in setting up this small office space. Generally speaking, the cost can vary between £15,000 and £80,000.
