No need for DIY if you’re not a real DIY enthusiast – in many areas we can put you in touch with a local installer or licensed builder.

In most cases your backyard studio room or cabin can be installed without any special approval. Read more about exempt development.

With Backyard Pods you can know what you’re getting and what it will cost before you get started.

Unlike an actual extension of your home, your pod is demountable, so it can be re-sold or relocated.

We can deliver pod kits to almost any location in Australia. Shipping costs vary depending on your location and the size of the pod, as to the size/weight of materials to be delivered.

Access is no problem with pod kits as they are delivered flat-packed and materials can be walked around to the rear of the property for easy assembly.

Although we do not install pods directly, we can often help by introducing an installer or licensed builder in these areas:

Pod kits include flooring system - no concrete slab needed

With a backyard pod, there’s no need for the hassle and expense of pouring a concrete slab, or trying to turn a shed or garage into a backyard cabin.

Backyard pod kits come complete with an engineered flooring system and yellow-tongue floor, ready for floating floorboards, vinyl, or carpet – any floor covering you choose.

The backyard pod floor structure ‘floats’ above-ground on optional foundation piers, allowing easy and economical installation even on sloping land.

How easily backyard pods come together at your place

Delivered as a flat-pack kit, backyard pods are fully engineered for structural integrity and easily assembled on-site from the instructions and fixings supplied.

You can buy a flat-pack backyard pod kit and put it together yourself (with a little help from your friends). Alternatively, you could have a local builder or shed erector install it for you.

In Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Orange, Central Coast, and the Gold Coast area, we can introduce you to a local installer or licensed builder who can help with your interior fit-out or customisation. Complete your pod with your choice of doors, windows, plasterboard or plywood lining, carpet or floating floorboards, even complete offices with powder room and kitchenette, or self-contained granny flats with kitchens and bathrooms.
