1. Home Businesses
Are you dreaming of working from home? Setting up your own business, selling your products or services in the comfort of your own home can have its ups and downs. Whilst the luxury of being your own boss, zero travel time to get to work and being in a place of work that you enjoy is a discerning factor for most, however; balancing work life and home life can become a struggle. Many home business owners will find that working within the home itself, can make it easy to become distracted. Maybe you forgot to put the washing on, write a list of parts you need for a home projects or need to water the garden, all these things though seemingly small jobs, they can add up, stealing time away from your business work. Similarly, working within the main dwelling can also make it harder to switch off and have family/leisure time as well.
Backyard cabins can offer a structured alternative. Built separate from the main dwelling, these home business places allow you to set up a workplace at home whilst creating a mental and physical difference between your home life and work life. You can set your work hours, then leave your cabin when the working part of your day is done or for lunch breaks, like you would if you were working for someone else. External home business buildings can also help you get “in the zone”. The act of physically going to a place of work, changes ones mindset, forcing you to get up, get dressed and have everything prepared prior to when you want your working day to start. At the end of the day, once the door closes, you can walk away, leaving any unfinished work and any work stress behind, instead of being surrounded by it constantly.
Be sure to keep in mind that when setting up a business from home, you will need to check with your local council on their licenses and regulations.
