It's always fun when we get to explore garden room designs that break away from the mould of Cedar clad cubes. The designs by SkyPods certainly stand out from the crowd because some of the options are formed from recycled aircraft. The SkyPods range comes in varying sizes, from small pods that would be a great garden office and larger designs that feature a shower room.
4m x 3m SkyPods
SkyPods are made from recycled aircraft; the fuselage of the plane forms the curved shape and gives you five window pods along the side of the room. The front elevation is fully glazed, incorporating a pair of outward opening doors.
The SkyPods team can work with you to customise the specification to your needs and tastes. The pods are fully insulated and designed for comfortable year-round use. For the colder days of the year, underfloor heating is fitted. Other desirable features include Bluetooth speakers, remote control lighting and USB charging sockets.
4m x 3.5m SkyPods
This larger version of the SkyPod would make a quirky glamping pod. It features a double bed, shower room and sink and worktop for making drinks and snacks.
Again, the SkyPods team can customise the specification to your needs. As you can see from these images, the curved form creates a great interior space.
2m x 3m SkyQuads
The SkyQuads range is formed from a section of the aircraft fuselage that creates a row of five windows along the rear wall, and could be a cool home office. The front wall features aluminium bi-fold doors which fold to one side to open the space up onto the garden.
SkyPods and SkyQubes are made to order with lead times typically 8 to 10 weeks from order. They are constructed off-site and delivered to you on a lorry and then lifted into position. With this method, once the electrics have been connected, your new room will be ready to use.
Alongside the recycled aircraft designs, SkyPods also offer the SkyCube range. Constructed from carbon fibre and aluminium, we love how all four corners have a gently curved profile.
The SkyCubes range is manufactured off-site and delivered to the site in one unit that is then lifted into position by a HIAB crane. The SkyCubes are plugin and play ready, so you can start using your new room straight away.
Fully insulated for year-round use, the SkyCube comes complete with wi-fi controlled heating for the colder days of the year.
The SkyCube range is Permitted Development friendly and comes in three sizes
- 2.15m x 2.15m
- 2.8m x 2.15m
- 3.6m x 2.5m
Prices for the SkyCube range start at £9,999 plus VAT. Some models are held in stock for quick delivery; otherwise, lead times are typically 8 to 10 weeks from order.
