Are you one of the thousands of people who switched to home working in lockdown? Or perhaps a long-term remote worker who’s known for years that — with a few tweaks — outbuildings can provide an idyllic, peaceful home office space you need?

We saw the rise in she-sheds and man caves for leisure, but if you’ve built a work from home space you’re proud of, why not enter a competition to win £250? What’s more, the largest general insurer and leading life and pensions provider will also share your hard work on their website and social media platforms.

So regardless of when you did the work or how much you spent, the multinational insurance company want to hear from you.

Go on, show off your ‘shoffice’…

Their judge is none other than property expert, podcast host and author Louisa Fletcher. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, she is a pro when it comes to all things home improvement and will be looking for DIY skills, creativity, innovative design and overall usefulness of the conversion. What’s more, bonus points will be awarded for savvy use of your budget.

Buying her first house at 19, Louisa caught the property bug and went on to buy, renovate and sell numerous properties throughout her twenties, making a healthy profit along the way. She has worked with some of the largest estate agents, mortgage brokers, new home builders and property websites in the UK. Excitingly, she also advises celebrities, sportspeople, high net worth individuals and even royal families on their property assets and portfolios.
