Office pods from Backyard Pods

PREFAB HOME OFFICES | PREFAB SITE OFFICES | FLAT-PACK OFFICE POD KITS | PORTABLE OFFICES

Many people want an office pod in their backyard these days due to the WFH (work-from-home) trend. If your home is small, working at the dining table or in a bedroom is okay for a while but long-term you’ll need a home office that’s quiet (no kids or dogs!) and looks good in Zoom or Teams. You can have Scandi-style office pods (Scandi-style lining instead of plasterboard), Hamptons-style office pods (interior lining boards painted white), or classic (Gyprock painted any colour you like). Choose from more than 20 exterior Colorbond colours, add a deck and veranda, add modern timber-look detailing to look trendy in your backyard. N4 wind rating (eg: Blue Mountains) and cyclone rating (northern Queensland) options are available.

Do I need approval to build a backyard office pod?

Yes, you may. This is because a home office is a ‘habitable room’ – in other words, it’s a room that you would normally have inside your main house but it’s separate. If you go ahead building a home office pod without approval, there are a number of risks, including lack of insurance for the building itself and coverage if anyone is injured inside the pod. It could even jeopardise the insurance for your entire property.
