What is a backyard pod

Our Backyard Pod is a 10m2 room with your choice of windows and doors. Our Pods are custom built with double or single glaze windows and sliding doors. Typically our Backyard Pods do not require a building permit. All of our Pod units have a minimum energy rating of R6.1. Design to Delivery normally takes 2 weeks.

What is a Garden Studio

Garden Studio floor plan consists of 1 bedroom and Ensuite, similar to a Granny Flat or dependent persons unit. Typically a studio footprint would range from 20m2 to 30m2 which also triggers a building permit in all councils in Melbourne (We arrange your building permit).  Studios are designed with your choice of double or single glaze windows and sliding doors.  All of our Garden Studios come with Engineering and foundation certification and a minimum energy rating of R6.1. Design to Delivery is subject to building permit requirements. (avg 8 weeks)

About our Backyard Pods and Garden Studios and what's included

Lockup Kit

We deliver our Backyard pods and Garden Studios as a ‘Lockup Kit’. The lockup kit is the basic shell of the building, which includes the main structure, walls, sub floor, roof windows and doors as per your requirements. We also supply a modern colorbond clad for the external finish which includes flashing, gutters and downpipes.

Completion

I understand lockup, what do I need to finish? First you will need an electrician to connect lights and power points, If you are building a garden studio with en suite a plumber will be required prior to internal finish. Then a handyman to install the Gyprock or plaster on the walls and ceiling.

No Slab Required

Our Backyard pod system is delivered with its own Engineered sub floor system. The sub floor system is more economical than a slab foundation and can be installed on top of posts or stumps. The added benefit of using the post or stump system allows for you to build on uneven ground (slope). If you do want your pod to be installed on an existing slab this is no problem.​

What's on the floor

On top of the sub floor structure is yellow tongue. This floor is supplied ready for a floor covering such as carpet tile or timber vinyl floating floor.

Can I customise?

Of course you can customise. Our backyard pods and Garden Studios are all computer designed and 3d Rendered. This means you can see your design and layout prior to manufacturing.

DIY or Handyman

The backyard pod is very easy to assemble. To complete the assembly you will need a Cordless Drill and a socket set,  you can purchase these from your local Bunnings or Mitre10. On delivery of your Backyard Pod unit we supply you with an assembly guide that is step by step from the footings to the roof. Building not for you? No worries, contact your local handyman and we will guide him/her through the process.

Electrical and Plumbing

Your Pod Kit is delivered as a flat pack, electrical and plumbing can’t be installed prior to arrival. Some planning will need to be considered if you are installing a bathroom and connecting your backyard pod to existing services. Suggestion is to ask both a plumber and electrician to come have a look and provide feedback.

We organise the install from start to finish?

Absolutely! We have trades already familiar with our Pods and Studios that can complete your install. We consult with our builders, handyman, electricians and plumbers to get a fixed quotation for your backyard pod project.
