Why You Should Turn a Jackleg Cabin Into A Home Office

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a distinct shift from working in the office to preferring to work from home. These days, most companies offer more flexible working patterns that support employees to work remotely at least a few days a week.

Cutting down time spent commuting to the office allows us to maintain a healthy work-life balance and gives us more time to do what makes us happy.

Read on to discover how turning a storage container or Jackleg cabin into a home office could benefit you.

Dedicated Workspace

Most of us enjoy having some sort of division between our living and working space. But not all homes have a spare bedroom or study to work from. Blurring the lines between work and leisure spaces by working in the bedroom or living room can make it difficult for us to switch off at the end of the day. 

A dedicated workspace makes it easier to leave behind your work at the end of the day. Once you leave your workstation and go back into the home, it's easier to take your mind off work and relax.

Customisation and Decor

By investing in your own personal office space, it’s yours to decorate as you please. Everyone’s personal taste is different. Some people prefer lighter colours with natural tones which promotes the feeling of tranquility and peace. On the other hand, some people feel energised by working in a brightly coloured and vibrant space.

Our surroundings have a big impact on our mood and emotions so choosing a workspace that makes you feel good is essential to boost your productivity.


Home offices inside the house can make it difficult to maintain privacy during the workday. Whether you live in a shared house or with family, it’s easy to get distracted by other people in the house.

Being in a physically separated space, you’re far enough away to not be disturbed by those at home, but close enough to go into the house during the day if you need to.

Quick and Easy Installation

Jackleg cabins or storage containers are prefabricated and simply need lifting on the property. Quick and easy installation means your new home office will be up and running in no time!


By decreasing the time you spend commuting to the office, you'll reduce your carbon footprint and the emissions you’re responsible for. Jackleg cabins or  storage containers can also be made from sustainable materials and have energy-efficient measures to contribute to eco-friendly practices.
