They also help business owners to solve trade mark related problems, such as if someone else is copying their brand name as well as dealing with the trade mark portfolios for larger companies that trade globally and need trade mark protection in the other countries where they sell their goods and services.
When asked what made them decide to set up their own business, Bill replied “To be honest it was precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns in 2020. We were renting premises in Bury St Edmunds and during the first lockdown we obviously had to start working from home, yet we still had obligations to pay the rent in premises that we couldn’t use. We gave notice to our landlord and ordered a Smart Suffolk Barn style office, the investment will pay for itself in around 18 months based on rent payment savings. An easy decision and the office is beautiful.”
Bill and Rachael were already aware of SMART, as SMART garden rooms is one of their clients. Having visited the factory several times and seen the manufacturing process first-hand Bill confirmed “We knew we wanted one of their studios right away but never got around to ordering one until 2020 when everything lined up and it made perfect sense to get one”
Bill and Rachael opted for one of our stunning high line dual pitched Suffolk Barns with the incredible internal vaulted ceiling for their quality garden office. Hand painted in a green colour stain, the barn nestles beautifully in their garden and looks like it has always been there.
“We have been using the studio for a few months now and it is simply a joy to make the commute across the garden and spend a day working in it. We had air conditioning fitted as well which keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer. It is lovely, light and airy inside, a fantastic working environment”
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, they have not been able to receive customers to their new office but are looking forward to the day when they can.
If you too are considering setting up your own office/business from home, like Rachael and Bill, then you will be pleased to hear that Bill rated his experience of SMART as “First class in every way. Friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble.”

Excellent service, great team, can highly recommend all aspects of SMART – they do what it says on the tin and the product is superb
“A fantastic experience from start to finish, a wonderful addition to our home! A lovely touch from the electrician; leaving a note to say how you hope we enjoy the office as much as you have enjoyed building it – little details like this just made it a pleasure. Never expected in a million years that it would run so smoothly but it’s been like silk for us. Thank you.”M Gardner, Bradford
“Your guys have done an outstanding job and I am so delighted with the end product. The appearance, finish and size of the Trio is everything I wanted and some more. But there is something else. Your guys Tony and Rob were excellent. Efficient, knowledgable guys who knew what they were doing and who did not waste a second doing it. And they were tidy workers too who were sensitive to the surroundings and neighbours. They were a credit to you and Smart Offices. So this is a big thank you from someone looking at their new office and who is really happy with the result and what Smart have done.”
hursday was a blur but Tony and Arris were fantastic on both days!! The office was gone by 2pm on the Wednesday and back up by 1pm on the Thursday. They just got on with it and made the whole thing stress free so thank you all so much for all your help – I am so very grateful..
Your service was excellent from concept to build; you could not have been more helpful. The build itself was breathtaking in it’s organisation and execution and nothing was too much trouble for your installation team; they were helpful and knowledgeable throughout – even fitting water butts at very short notice for us. When we had a small issue with the door adjustment you went out of your way to get someone to us as soon as possible. I can’t fault your after-care service.
“We were really impressed with the professionalism of the whole process right from the initial site survey and design through to the actual build. There is clearly a Smart solution for virtually any situation and it is great to gain a brand new space which is both functional and aesthetically pleasing! We would certainly have another one if we ever moved house and wanted to create extra room. Tony and Rob’s workmanship was a joy to watch!”
“The team, all of whom have been most pleasant to have around, have now finished and we are absolutely delighted. The building does look ‘smart’ and the whole job has been carried out with maximum efficiency.”
“The office is now part of the furniture and is great. I am 100% glad that I did it and went with you guys.”
“If it means anything (and I’m sure it does) we believe that getting the office (and especially the Trio) rather than fighting inside the house was absolutely the right thing to do.”
“Keith and I are very impressed with Charlie, his installers and his products and recommend Smart Garden offices unhesitatingly”
“The office is fantastic and exceeds expectations.”
“It’s a pleasure doing business with people who do what they say, on time, professionally, and with no fuss. The building is perfect for my needs.”
“We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone.”
“I have worked right through this dreadful winter, and thanks to the brilliant insulation, remained warm and snug using only a small, economic halogen heater. My office is cosier than the house!”
“First of all, I love the new office. May I say what a great job the guys did on the build. Hard working and extremely pleasant, particularly considering the rotten weather yesterday.”
“We’re delighted by our very ‘Smart’ Garden Office. “
