Case Study: Jamie’s Backyard Workshop

Work from home, see your family more often and not have to travel. Sounds ideal right?

But for most of us who have suddenly found ourselves working from home, the reality is more like this:
you’re working in the living room or on the dining table, and family are working just metres away. Trying to block out distractions and focus on your work can be a challenge, especially if space is limited!

The solution? A backyard workshop.

Work-from-home creatives are bringing more happiness, fulfilment and balance into their daily lives by setting up a separate workshop in the backyard.

Somewhere to set up, and be able to focus without distractions. The ability to close the door at the end of the day, knowing that everything will be untouched until you return.

One such creative is Jamie of @JAC.home.heart. Jamie recently moved her Macrame business to the backyard by getting not one but two Melwood Workshops installed!

Two Workshops? That’s right! Jamie got two Melwood Workshops installed in her backyard. The larger one is used as a workshop, and the other is for storing her beautiful Macrame Supplies which you can see here.

The main benefit of getting a Melwood Workshop was…

“Being able to separate my family/home life from my work life.” Jamie says “The more my home business expanded the more space it took away from my home. I don’t have to worry about that now.”

A separate space to create – and more space freed up inside the home!

As most work-from-home creatives find, as the business grows, it slowly starts taking over the home.

Jamie says that before she got her Melwood Workshops, “My stock was taking up the ‘man cave’ and all my fibre art was taking up the living and dining room!)”.

A backyard workshop creates that essential separation between work & home.

Somewhere you can go to focus, and at the end of the day, close the door, return to your home & be fully present with your family.
“I cant imagine not having my own work space now! Another upside is now I have added considerable value to my home for having them.” – Jamie @jac.home.heart
