Anybody who works from a garden office or a similar annexe workspace will know that the proposition is entirely more appealing in summer than it is in winter.
Those who venture into garden workspaces between September and March are: (a) hardy souls; (b) almost constant commentators on the temperature; and (c) no strangers to fingerless gloves.
That is, of course, unless the office in question is equipped with a wood-burning stove. With a woodburner installed, even the harshest of wintery workplaces can become inviting and productive spaces in which to spend the working day.
Key considerations before installing a woodburner in a garden office
- Will your installation be able to comply with building regulations? Read up on those here.
- Is the floor strong enough to hold the stove and hearth?
- How well insulated is the office? Assuming there is decent insulation and it’s a relatively small building, you will only need a small stove.
