SIMPLE SPACE SOLUTION
There’s a new alternative for anyone looking to expand their home, as Chris Church discovered
Want to increase space in your home but don’t want the cost of an extension? Homeowners around the country have found the answer – a ‘pod’! A bespoke designed timber garden room with all the home comforts but much more affordable than bricks and mortar.
Whether you are looking for an office, a gym, home cinema or just extra space, a pod might be for you, as David Harper of Executive Pods explained: “They are as comfortable as any room, with choice of under-floor heating, mains power and water. Also, being more lightweight than a conventional extension, they can be sited on a concrete base so no need for foundations.”
With a cedar-clad exterior, they look good alongside any style of house and will last for years. They can be designed free-standing or attached and planning permission is also easier than with a conventional extension.
“Pods usually need no planning consent, but Executive Pods will take care of that,” said David, who has 30 years’ experience in joinery and project management. Executive Pods design every pod specifically for each customer, built from scratch on site.
Once built exterior decking and landscaping can be added as well your chosen interior fixtures and fittings. Pods provide simple space solutions, without the expense of new-build. So the message is, ‘Don’t move – improve!’
