A few years ago, Kent covered the Pod, an innovative and mobile tiny house designed primarily for camping. Another company in the United Kingdom has upped the ante on this type of building with the Log Pod, a portable wooden structure that comes in two beautiful designs. The Log Pod can be used as an office, mediation or retreat space, in a campsite or as a tiny house.
The company designs and sells two different designs: the Log Pod and the Gothic Pod. The Log Pod has an angular roof and is 11 feet by 7.6 feet, and because of its raised foundation can be placed on slopes, uneven ground or even in flood prone areas. It has a 4 foot deep covered porch with a glass door in the front and a rear fire escape rear window. Lights and electricity come standard. The Gothic Pod has an arched roof and curved interior lines. It’s the same size and has the same amenities as the Log Pod, and it is wheelchair accessible.
Both buildings are built for year round living and each have a lifespan of at least 25 years. Nearly every part of a Log Pod is biodegradable or recyclable and all the timber elements are manufactured from sustainable sources. The wall and floor insulation is Rockwool which is made from rocks that have been super heated and spun like cotton candy. Options include a solar panel pack and various roofing options including overlapping and interlocking 6″ Featheredge boards.
A standard Log Pod costs about £5,250 or about $8,200 and a standard Gothic Pod costs about £5,750 or $9,000. Delivery is only within the UK, but a Log Pod can be collected from the factory at no charge.
