|George Clark's programmes on small buildings put forward some amazing ideas.† On the other hand I have seen some really lovely buildings tucked into the back of gardens which are totally inoffensive to the neighbours.† |
Do some research† into both modern and traditional style and then perhaps sketch out what you have in mind and find a good carpenter to create your vision.† Good insulation, sound electrics for all those sockets modern equipment requires these days and perhaps a cold water tap so you can make the endless cups of tea and coffee that working people need.
Consider painting the 'office' a gentle colour to blend in.† A great idea but it will not be cheap - I think £12,000 to £20,000 depending on what you have in mind and size.†
Remember if you are in a conservation area, you will need to apply for planning and, the most important thing is to go round for a preliminary chat with your neighbours all round to sound them out.† Don't even think of 2 storeys because that does get the neighbours up in arms.
