Rapod – an oasis of calm

Rapod have sent through details of a recent garden room build in Surrey. The customers are using their new room as a playroom – lucky child!


Rapod garden rooms have a contemporary feel, and if you have already checked out their online design tool you will know that they have almost infinite layout options and an extensive material palette  to choose from.

This customer choose a specification which included:

  • Oak tongue and groove cladding
  • Decking step
  • 3m bifold door
  • Full height parallel window
  • White internal finish boards
  • Steel anthracite roof
  • Exterior Lights


This Rapod is a good size at 4.3m x 3.3m and was built and finish very quickly, the installation team arrived on site 9am on the Monday and left by 2pm on the Friday!

The customer says this about the project:

The team at RAPOD have been exceptional with their level of service. Having a new building installed in your garden is an exciting but quite daunting prospect as it seems like such a large undertaking. But the whole process, from our initial consultation to being handed the keys upon completion, was an entirely stress free experience. You are in complete control as to how you want your ‘pod’ to look and if you change your mind on a small point it’s not a problem. The quality of the materials used and the expertise of the guys who put them all together for you is second to none. I was honestly amazed at the speed in which it went up but don’t let that put you off as there are no shortcuts taken as the attention to detail and craftsmanship is there to see when you first walk into your finished pod. And what shall my new pod be used for? Well, I am a photographer who works from home a lot so it will be my day to day office although my wife and son have both been eyeing it up for their own use. Even my dog spends her days in it with me and when winter comes and the underfloor heating goes on she will think she’s in heaven which is where I currently am, writing this. Thank you RAPOD for my little oasis of calm.
