With the rise in working from home and people starting their own businesses the garden office is becoming more and more of a popular choice over a daily commute. With this rise in popularity comes a rise in options in not only the building type but also in certain luxuries like tech to link to the main house and more traditional things like wood burners.
To answer the initial question; yes you can have a wood burner in your garden office BUT there are a number of things to consider and some potential barriers to having one installed.
Why Would You Want One?
There are a number of reasons why a wood or multi fuel stove is a great idea in a garden office. The first is simply because they are great to have. The cosy feeling a stove provides will really add to the atmosphere in your office. For many people garden offices are traditionally cold in the winter and somewhere they spend a lot of time on their own. By adding an efficient heating system like a stove you can combat the cold and bring some extra comfort into the room. Fires are also great for stress, hearing the crackle and pop of a stove during work can be great for concentration and combating stress. A stove is also likely to be a better heat source than other options like electric heaters. Wood can be bought in bulk and is likely to be cheaper than electric options as well as being better for the environment.
