Working from Home – An Outdoor Retreat
During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, the UK government (as well as the devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) urged everyone to work from home if possible. Many people found that remote working suited them very well, not least because it gave them a break from the daily commute and enabled to them to spend more time with their loved ones. But working from home has its downsides, too; it can be very difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance when your home is also your workplace.
This was the problem that a couple from Salisbury hoped to overcome by adding a SunSpaces veranda to their property. Both of them were working from home in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, and they decided that adding a veranda to their garden would give them a much-needed retreat, preventing work from infringing on their quality time.
A few months after installing the new veranda, we received some more feedback from our customers in Salisbury. “We have certainly been making good use of the veranda and terrace,” they said, “and we are really happy with the transformation it has brought to both the house and our ability to enjoy fresh air dining – a great way to relax and get away from work while working from home.”
Al fresco dining has been a key benefit of the veranda for this couple. “We've been able to have nearly every breakfast, mid-morning coffee and lunch outside,” they reported. “Only the worst of weather and gloom has caused us to revert inside.”
