Raise your hand if you’re working from home. Keep your hand raised if working from home is starting to make you a little stir crazy. Is your hand up? We’ve all been adapting to a new way of living and working, and by now, the four walls around you may feel like they’re starting to close in. The weather’s getting warmer and the sun is staying out longer, so it’s time to shake off the winter blues and step into the lush greens outdoors.
Why Work Outdoors?
A change of scenery does a person good. In fact, research shows that switching up where you spend your time can boost your mood and your overall well-being. And since renovating or adding onto your home can come with a hefty price tag, creating an outdoor workspace is the next best (dare we say better) choice. Not only does working outside give you the opportunity to get some fresh air and Vitamin D, it’s also a chance to enjoy your beautiful outdoor living space longer and more often!
How to Work Outdoors (Hint: The right space helps)
Working outdoors sounds nice, doesn’t it? But what do you need before your outdoor office can take root? First, decide what you want your outdoor work space to look like.
Do you want a shelter with a roof to protect you from the elements, or do you prefer something more open, surrounded by flowers and plants? What is the weather like where you live? Do you need to consider outdoor heaters or outdoor lighting options? What about technology? Will you need to use a computer or TV in your outdoor space?

Not Into Working Outdoors?
We get it. Some people enjoy keeping the spaces where they work and relax separate. If that’s you, consider creating an outdoor sanctuary where you can get away to take a break, rest and recharge before, during or after a long workday.
Outdoor living spaces can be as simple as a little landscaping and a small shelter, or they can be as elaborate as a fully custom outdoor kitchen, living room, or gathering space. That means you can create a space to cook and entertain, or someplace quiet to escape to when you need a break from the kids or your boss.
Feels Like Home
After a long, gloomy winter and a year of working from home, it’s time to shake off the rust, dust off the cobwebs and step into spring. Warm weather is here, and it’s time to embrace it! And what better way than by bringing your favorite indoor spaces out?
Creating an outdoor living space is a great way to enjoy warmer months without using valuable vacay days to get away. With the help of our friendly and experienced design/build team, you can bring your outside office dreams to life and enjoy your days in a custom outdoor escape so beautiful that you might even forget you’re at work.
