@webwysard - the loft conversion isn't an option sadly, the roof trusses are not in the best position and more annoyingly all the water tanks, and pipe work are in the way !
They're scattered around up their like crazy !
@m@rk - I hear what you're saying, and completely agree, thankfully I spend most of my time on the road working, but I need a desk/bureau for the one or possibly two mornings a month I have to get all the paperwork done and dusted.
The garden office/shed thing is a great idea, but far too expensive for what I need realistically.
I'm more after the smart desk office thing - like a large unit that backs against the wall but thank you for all the suggestions so far
