 Portopods extend living or office space at less cost and without major disruption
 Built to high engineering specification and beautifully finished in natural woods
 Static answers to homes and small businesses, as well as for mobile, pop-up locations


April 15, 2019, WORCESTERSHIRE, UK. Press Dispensary. Across the UK, people are struggling to find enough space in their homes and small businesses. They need an extra bedroom, a home office that isn’t the dining room, a garden room, perhaps a room to rent out on Airbnb or similar, or somewhere to expand the business … but the huge cost and upheaval of moving is out of the question. The newly launched answer is Portopods: eye-catchingly attractive stand-alone rooms finished in natural woods such as cedar and British oak, created caringly for a garden or other outside space.

Portopods are portable pods, installed as a static building or available on wheels for use as a mobile office or retail space. Because of their portability, the usual concerns about building extensions (whether outside or up in the attic) are no longer off-putting: the eye-watering costs of services such as architects, groundworks and armies of builders are banished, there’s often no need for planning permission and companies with business premises need not be hit by new business rates.

Each pod is pre-designed and pre-built to the highest quality by experienced Portopods craftspeople. Natural woods, space-saving innovation, novel designs and immense flexibility are used to create single rooms, retail areas or accommodation with optional kitchens and en-suite bathrooms.

Designs include light and airy garden rooms and various styles of shepherd’s hut, fully equipped with living and sleeping space, kitchen and bathroom, and available in static and mobile form. Portable offices can help businesses to expand without relocating and retail layouts are perfect for customers to enjoy such treatments such as hair dressing, beauty, massage and physiotherapy – whether static in a single location or mobile for pop-up use in shopping centres, retail parks, fairs and festivals.

Prices include all pre-design, pre-build, delivery schedule and onsite installation, including any plumbing and electrics, and Portopods can also help with personal or business finance, as well as planning issues if they arise.

Co-founder Damon Dawson, who is Portopods’ Design & Build director, with 20 years of experience to offer, said: “With space at a premium and traditional extensions often not an option, Portopods offer homes and small businesses the ability to grow in a stylish and comfortable way, with pre-defined, pre-built high specification buildings of the highest quality. We use standard designs, enhanced by the ability to tailor and add extra items, depending on how a customer wants their building to look and feel.

“And because our buildings are portable, issues such as planning permission and business rates need not be a worry.”

Portopods customer Elliot Hall, of Ockeridge Rural Retreats, said: “The quality of the workmanship is what impressed me the most and it was clear that this product had every aspect of it carefully designed and engineered. The functionality is equally impressive and the way in which Damon and James treat their customers is a breath of fresh air. A 5 Star product with 5 Star service to match.”

Prices start at £7,250, delivered anywhere in the UK, with delivery lead times as little as 8 weeks.
