Office pod examples – backyard and commercial projects

VIC | NSW | ACT | SE QLD

Offices can come in all shapes, styles, and sizes – home offices in the backyard or on-site at an institution or commercial property. Having a backyard office pod has become the ‘new normal’ with the adoption of WFH either full-time or some days of the week. A home office pod in the backyard can provide relief from domestic distractions and work-life balance without leaving home. Built on skids for potential mobility in future, or as a permanent structure built on standard foundation piers, read how other customers have made a cost-effective, customised office using flat-pack kits from Backyard Pods. DIY or use a local installer.
