We went along to Sydney Build Expo at Moore Park in March 2018 to check out the latest building supplies that could be suitable to recommend for backyard pod projects. The expo was great and we exchanged contact details with several suppliers with a view to bringing their products onboard in future.
It took ages to get right around the exhibitors in the Royal Hall of Industries (Hordern Pavillion) and it was well after lunch when we came across the stand for Australian Handyman magazine, staffed by some enthusiastic evangelists for all things to do with the great Aussie tradition of having a go at DIY around the home.

Talk soon got around to some great DIY backyard projects, like the recent DIY storage pod and man-cave built in a backyard at Toongabbie by one of our customers (with a little help from his friends), and the huge, beautifully fitted-out house of made of pods which was essentially a DIY project and was featured recently with us on Channel 9 News.
Send us pics of your completed DIY backyard pod projects
The guys from Handyman magazine were really interested to hear about our DIY customer success stories, and we’ve promised in future to give them more info about outstanding DIY projects as they come to hand. Of course, to feature projects like the recent one at Toongabbie, we really need our customers to send us pics of their projects stage-by-stage to completion, with a bit of a description about how the project was managed, how long it took, etc.
If you’re one of the people who have recently purchased a backyard pod kit from us for a DIY project – please remember to get back to us with updates on progress and we’ll help other would-be DIY people by sharing (anonymously) your stories. Who knows, if the project is interesting enough – you might find your project featured in Handyman!
