Peas in a pod
Enhance your home by adding a beautiful garden room with a little help from the team at PODS.
Do you love your home, but need a bit of extra space? Whether it’s that much-desired home office, perhaps an art or yoga studio, or simply somewhere to chill away from the mayhem, it’s a challenge that many people have to contend with. Thankfully, the solution to all your woes can be found right here in Cornwall, courtesy of a creative Newquay-based company.
“beautifully designed and constructed spaces, both inside and out, with a quality that speaks for itself”
Introducing PODS, sister company to the Cornish Landscaper. PODS stands for ‘Perfect Offices, Dens & Studio’ and that pretty much sums up what the team do in a nutshell. However, when you delve a little deeper, you discover that it’s so much more than that. These are beautifully designed and constructed spaces, both inside and out, with a quality that speaks for itself. Not only do they look stunning, they can add considerable value to your home too.
PODS are essentially an extension of the garden space, creating an additional room (or rooms) with an extremely versatile range of uses, from games rooms for pool, table tennis or darts, to the aforementioned office spaces, studios, and also home gyms for keeping trim. They could potentially also serve as a guest bedroom or suite, with the relevant permissions. However, 90% of jobs don’t require any planning permission.
The team at PODS can talk you through the entire process, offering CAD (computer aided design) to visualise your pod, as well as a free quote. The really great bit is that the design and finish can be entirely customised to your needs and tastes, to create the ideal space that works for you – exactly how you envisaged it – and can include a range of quality materials.
Take, for example, a recent new-build project in Newquay, with an emphasis on being environmentally friendly. The team built a 4.5m x 4.5m office and gamesroom, using recycled composite cladding, completed with a striking sedum roof of natural grass, which creates a really organic look, provides great insulation and, most importantly to PODS, is incredibly environmentally friendly. PODS worked closely with the client to design the room to meet their brief.
So, don’t put up with the lack of space any longer! Whatever your project, perhaps it’s time to contact the team at PODS and start creating your own bespoke space.
