Living room in the garden

RAPOD have recently completed this 4.3 meter x 3.3 meter garden room for a recently retired couple who plan to use the new building as a garden living room.

They first met the RAPOD team at the Home Building & Renovating Show, and backed up this initial meeting with a trip to RAPOD HQ to look at their show building. These visits allowed them to get a feel for the quality of RAPOD’s buildings and to choose finishes from RAPOD’s wide palette of options.


The customer decided on Accoya tongue & groove cladding which has a pale finish – RAPOD offer one of the widest cladding palettes we’ve seen.

The cladding was combined with anthracite 3 meter wide bi-fold doors and a floor to ceiling window. The anthracite colouring was also chosen for the roof covering.


Internally the floor is a high quality engineered oak. The walls and ceiling a a white limewood panelling. This combination creates a light and modern space.


The building was completed in five on-site days by a team of two workers, so there was minimal disruption for the clients who say:

The two guys who built the room were a pleasure to have ‘on-site’ and took great pride in their work, resulting in an outstanding finish to the pod.”
– Mr. & Mrs. D
