For building surveyor, Vince, working from his spare bedroom felt like the only option. And so on he went, enduring the typical challenges and distractions, for the past five years.
But then one day, that all changed – when Vince happened to stumble upon a Harwyn advertisement. He was immediately intrigued. And now, Vince is one of our most recent new owners of a Harwyn WFH pod.
We chatted to Vince about how his work and life have changed since installing a Harwyn.
Q: Hi Vince, it’s great to catch up. Can you start by telling us how you came to own a Harwyn?
A: I’d been working from our spare bedroom for five years.
But it got to a point where my wife and I were keen to reclaim the spare room. So we thought about extending the house. But we quickly realised how expensive that would become.
Around this time, I just happened to stumble upon an ad for a Harwyn pod. I was instantly enticed by the sleek, aesthetically pleasing design.
One thing led to another… and now here I am – with my very own home-office pod, in my very own backyard.
Q: Did you research other pod options?
A: I did look at other options, such as some low-end shed solutions and DIY alternatives.
But nothing compared to Harwyn. It was clearly in a league of its own.
And of course, as I work the standard 9-5 working week, the feel of the pod was really important to me. Spending so much of my time in there, I wanted it to be super comfortable.
The aesthetic was also key. After all, it’s for my career – not some hobby.
The stunning interior fit-out of the Harwyn pod really set it apart. I knew it was the right product.
Q: How was your purchase experience – from the initial call to installation?
A: My experience with Harwyn and the Director, Jason, was first class all the way.
Whenever I had any queries, I would give Jason a call and he would explain it right there and then.
He was patient in explaining the nuts and bolts of the process – from design to ordering to review to installation. It was all simple and easy.
And in terms of the installation, it was all done in half a day, so I was able to start working in my pod by lunchtime. Talk about efficiency!
Q: How has your work life changed since?
A: The main benefit has been having a separate, dedicated office. It’s helped increase my focus.
Also, just being out of the house makes me feel like I’m actually going to work. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything working from home anymore.
I get to enjoy the benefits of WFH, such as a more relaxed environment, while having that family-work separation too.
With two teenagers home in the afternoon, I no longer have any unwanted distractions during important meetings. I can’t hear what’s going on in the house and my kids aren’t bothered by me ‘at work’. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Q: That’s wonderful news! To wrap up, do you have any advice for someone considering a Harwyn home-office pod?
A: The most important thing to consider is the quality of the product.
If you’re like me, you’re going to be in this space for most hours of your week. So investing in a premium pod is really worth it.
When I compare Harwyn to the alternatives, nothing even comes close.
