Now I’ve heard everything. I was doing some research on alternative workplace strategies and I came across a book called “Shedworking: The Alternative Workplace Revolution.”

Here’s the description of the book:

“Featuring shedworkers and shedbuilders from around the world who are leading the alternative workplace revolution, Shedworking looks at why having a shed office is a greener way of working, improves the work-life balance, and accelerates one’s productivity. Inspired by the author’s Shedworking website, which has been internationally acclaimed for the groundbreaking scale of its architectural coverage, the book features many previously unpublished images of garden offices and shed-like atmospheres: offices on roofs, sheds inside “traditional” offices, and even sheds on wheels, as well as cutting-edge Le Corbusier-designed models for the back garden, all-glass shed offices, and buildings “built” using living trees. Along the way it offers a whistle-stop tour of famous sheds from Pliny the Younger’s summerhouse and the retreats of 19th-century composers Edvard Grieg and Gustav Mahler to award-winning 21st-century fantasy writer Neil Gaiman’s gazebo. In short, Shedworking offers a manifesto for those wanting to change their working lives for the better and go to work in the garden.”

What a manifesto! I have a friend who takes the shedworking approach, essentially working from a hyped up, high-tech shed in the backyard of his Miami home. But let’s face it: shedworking is not practical for everyone—especially in Miami where condos abound. So what’s the solution for folks in big cities who can’t find sheds but want to tap into the alternative workplace revolution? Virtual offices.

Take Miami, for example. Davinci Virtual Office Solutions offers nine virtual offices in Miami, including virtual offices on Brickell Avenue and virtual offices in Coral Gables near the Miami International Airport.

When you rent a Miami virtual office space from Davinci Virtual, you get a prime business address, mail and package receipt, access to a business support center, a lobby greeter to deal with clients who drop by, a client drop off and pick up point, mail forwarding and shipping services and more. You can also rent a conference room for important client meetings on demand or rent a day office if you need an alternative workplace.

So if shedworking isn’t for you, but you want to deploy your alternative workplace strategy in Miami, check out one of Davinci Virtual’s nine Miami virtual offices.
