A crucial part of achieving longevity and getting the most out of our new pod is establishing a solid foundation. An inadequate foundation can lead to structural issues, potentially causing cracks in the pod. Uneven placement of the pod may alter its geometric shape, resulting in twisting of doors and windows, as well as the formation of gaps. In this section, we'll delve into the essential considerations for the base and access to the sides of your pod, guiding you through the process of creating the perfect foundation for your outdoor space.
Access for Installation & Maintenance
For seamless installation and maintenance of our pods, access to all four sides is essential. We recommend allowing approximately 300mm (about 12 inches) of clearance around each side of the pod. However, allowing more space should never be overlooked.
In instances where the pod is positioned in a tight corner or a confined space, it's important to consider the potential challenges this may pose for pod maintenance. Restricted access can hinder routine visual inspections, which are typically recommended every six months. This regular check-up is crucial to identify and address any issues promptly, preventing them from escalating into more significant problems. Therefore, when placing the pod in a snug location, please be mindful of the potential maintenance difficulties it may entail.
The pod's foundation is the bedrock upon which your outdoor relaxation retreat will stand. To maintain the pod's structural integrity and prevent warping over time, it's imperative that all of our pods are fitted on a level and sturdy surface. We do not recommend installing any of our pods on uneven ground, grass, or generally unsuitable surfaces. Instead, we advocate for the ideal base, which includes options such as concrete, tarmac, patio stones, or even a structurally sound patio decking.
To ensure proper weight distribution and stability, it is crucial that the full, complete base is in contact with the ground.
It's crucial to avoid any substantial depressions or gullies on the base surface. A depression of more than 3/4 of an inch (20mm) at any point across the base can lead to undesirable consequences, such as the pod's floor being pushed down or bowed up in the middle. This not only poses structural issues but may also hinder you or your clients enjoyment of the pod.
An inadequate base for any pods can result in gaps forming. Gaps may develop in the pod's doors or walls. These gaps can have several consequences, including:
- Reduced Insulation: Gaps in the structure compromise the insulation of the pod, making it less energy-efficient and potentially leading to temperature fluctuations inside.
- Pest Intrusion: Openings can allow pests to enter the pod, which could create hygiene and maintenance issues.
- Water Ingress: Gaps may permit water to seep into the pod, potentially causing damage to the interior and its contents.
- Aesthetic Deterioration: Uneven gaps can mar the pod's appearance and affect its overall aesthetics.
It's essential to ensure that the pod is placed on a level and appropriate foundation to prevent these issues.
If our recommendations for building / choosing a suitable base are not adhered to, the warranty of the pod will be nulled!
How to Verify Your Pod Base
Checking the solidity and levelness of your pod base is crucial to ensure a flawless installation and prolonged usage. You can follow these simple steps to confirm its suitability:
- Use a level, a straight piece of material, alongside a spirit level to check for any rocking or depressions exceeding 3/4 of an inch (20mm).
- For added peace of mind, consider consulting a local builder or landscaper to confirm that the surface is level, ensuring a solid foundation for your outdoor pod.
Get Our Opinion
If you have any doubts or questions about the surface where your pod will be installed, please reach out to us. We are dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and expert assistance throughout the process.
To facilitate a comprehensive assessment of your pod base, we invite you to share images via email to email@example.com. Please include the following details in your email, which will help us evaluate your situation accurately and efficiently:
- Images: Attach 3-5 images of your preferred pod base. This visual information is crucial for our assessment.
- Additional Information: If there are any specific details or noteworthy aspects related to your base, please provide them in the email. This may include any unusual features or conditions.
- Contact Number: Include your preferred contact number, allowing us to reach out to you promptly.
- Pod Type/Model: Kindly, mention the pod type, model and size you are interested in. This will help us tailor our guidance to your specific needs.
The cabin arrives unassembled and is delivered in modular components. It comes with comprehensive assembly instructions, making it easy for you to put it together. The modular components simply need to be joined at the intersections, and we provide detailed guidance to ensure a smooth assembly process. This allows you to have control over the setup and ensures that the pod is placed exactly where you envision it.
We highly recommend having the cabin assembled by a competent individual, preferably your local joiner, to ensure that it is put together correctly and safely. Additionally, any necessary electrical work can be conducted by your electrician after the pod has been assembled.
Once your order is confirmed, our artisans begin crafting your pod, typically taking 15-20 business days. Following this, we allocate 5 additional days for secure delivery. We aim for a total delivery timeframe of 20-25 days, although this may extend to 30 days under certain circumstances, such as customisation or weather-related delays. Our commitment to communication ensures you stay informed throughout the process.
On the Day of Delivery
Once your pod(s) arrive, the process of unloading and positioning them is a straightforward one. The next step involves using a hiab/crane to lift the pod from the delivery lorry and precisely place it at your chosen location. While we do not directly provide the crane service, we stand ready to assist you with guidance and detailed instructions to ensure a seamless installation. Your pod will be in its new home in no time.

- Lorry Arrival: Our delivery lorry will arrive at the agreed-upon location on the specified date and time.
- Secured Delivery: The pod, which arrives unassembled and flatpacked, will be fully secured for transportation.
- Pallet Delivery: In most cases, the unassembled pod components will be wrapped and secured on one or more pallets.
- Equipment Setup: You'll need to have a crane, forklift, tractor, or similar equipment ready on-site to unload the pod components from the lorry. Ensure the equipment is properly set up and ready for operation.
- Unloading: The crane, forklift or machine operator will carefully unload the modular components from the lorry. This process typically takes 15-45 minutes, depending on the specific pod configuration.
- Pod Components: After unloading, you will have individual pod components ready for assembly. These components are typically packaged in a way that ensures their safety during transport.
- Assembly: The assembly process is streamlined for simplicity. Two competent individuals, such as joiners or skilled craftsmen, can complete the assembly within 1-2 days, depending on the specific pod and configuration.
- Safety Precautions: Maintain a safe working environment during assembly, adhering to all safety guidelines.

- Enjoy Your Pod: With the assembly complete, you're now ready to enjoy your pod for a variety of purposes, whether it's a cosy retreat, office space, or any other imaginative use.
Electrical Guide for Your Pod
Before placing an order for one of our pods, it's essential to consider how you'll provide electricity inside your pod. This consideration is crucial for ensuring your pod's functionality.
The electrical supply for our pods is highly dependent on the intended usage of the pod. Specific electrical requirements may vary from project to project. For example, if your pod is designated as an outdoor office with a limited number of double sockets and a few lights, a 20 Amp supply may suffice. On the other hand, if your pod is equipped with multiple sockets, interior and exterior lighting, a fridge, and cooking appliances, the electrical demand will be significantly higher. In such cases, a 63 Amp supply might be necessary. Please note that these are general guidelines, and once we have a clear understanding of your pod's purpose, we can provide precise information regarding the electrical requirements.
Our in-house electrician will perform detailed calculations, taking into account load, resistance, cable size, trip times, and other essential factors. We will provide you with precise and tailored electrical information specific to your pod's intended usage.
There are two main types of electrical connections for our pods. The first type, pictured on the left, features an external fuseboard (IP55) fixed to the bottom of the cabin. The second type, shown on the right, includes a commando socket with a main RCD. This configuration allows for an internal fuseboard. Both setups are designed to suit the specific pod and its unique requirements.
