Newest Trend: Backyard Office Spaces

    

As more people work remotely, it can be challenging to find an adequate working space inside your home. While most people work from a bedroom, kitchen, living room or dining room, a new trend is emerging for a location most telecommuters might not have considered: the backyard.

The sixty-second walk to a backyard office provides the feeling of being “somewhere else” while remaining accessible to family and co-workers. There are two ways you can tackle this project:

Option 1: Do It Yourself
Option 2: Buy one

If you are crafty and have time during quarantine, option one could be for you; however, option two is perfect for those others less skilled in carpentry or home improvements and prefer a more hands-off approach.

Whichever option you choose, a backyard office can come with a hefty price. Maybe you do not have $15,000 in hand to cover the costs, but you could consider a cash-out refinance to potentially lower your rate and use some of your home’s equity.
