Outpost : Garden Pod

A contemporary summer house; an eco-hut; a garden room; a sleepover space; a modern gazebo.....welcome to the Garden Pod.

A beautiful addition to any outdoor environment, from small courtyard, garden or even woodland. Whether entertaining friends or just unwinding, the Garden Pod is a great, fresh, new outdoor space.

The Pod is delivered and erected by us on your site.


Materials

Our eco-friendly, handcrafted Pods use locally sourced, FSC timber from well-managed, renewable woodlands.

The seasoned Western Red Cedar cladding is a highly durable, attractive timber. It has a great resistance to decay and is oiled and protected against fungal and insect attack.

As strength is an important factor, marine plywood is sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of cladding. This gives great rigidy and strength it also creates a shadow line between the cladding strips while giving protection from wind and rain.

The roof of the Pod is covered in a single sheet of EPDM membrane and is 100% weather proof.  We are increasingly being asked to incorporate ‘living’ or green roofs into our Pods. Attractive to look at and beneficial to wildlife, a sedum roof will also protect against UV rays.


Dimensions

The outer dimensions of the Pod are:

2.6m width x 2.6m depth x 2.35m height

However, as each Pod is handmade to order, it allows us to provide a bespoke design service to those customers who have special requirements.





Preparation

The Garden Pod will need to stand upon a level paved or concrete area. This creates maintenance free, stable and clean base for the Pod. Whether purpose built or an existing solid patio area, this base needs to be firm and level.

The base will need to prepared before delivery to our simple specifications.

On-site installation usually takes 1 - 2 days


Interiors

Inspired on our travels from the souks of Marrrakech to the beach huts of Bali, our sumptuous interiors are designed to complement the natural beauty of the Pod.

Available in a range of colours, the Pod furniture is hand-made and consists of two upholstered futon-type bench sofas and one corner table/storage unit. This all converts into a double bed, ideal for warm summer nights.

Weatherproof screens are included with the Garden Pod, which zip open and clip neatly to the inside of the portholes, and can be stored in the corner unit.  These can be used to provide privacy if sleeping in the Pod or to give protection if shutting down the Pod for winter.


Planning Permission

The Garden Pod is a freestanding structure and as such planning permission is not normally required. There may be exceptions in conservation areas or on the site of a listed building. It is recommended that you contact your local Planning Authority as to the exact requirements for planning permission prior to the installation of your Garden Pod.
