Glam Pod is England’s Backyard Tiny House

Say hello to the Glam Pod over in England.

They made it for people who need a home, but are not yet ready for a large one.

So for now, they can put the Glam Pod in their parents or friend’s backyard.

It takes 8 to 10 weeks to build and is delivered on a small trailer.

This tiny house can be connected to utilities and water.

It is made out of 95% timber.

The exterior siding on the house is English cedar.

Insulation exceeds building code requirements, and the design inspiration came from Malaysia.

I encourage you to watch the video below to learn more.

I like the Glam Pod because it’s good-looking and environmentally friendly because of it’s size. Learn more about pricing here.

As you can see after looking at the pricing, you can save lots of money by doing it yourself. A great place to start is the DIY Guide for Backyard Building.

Structures like these can also be used as backyard offices, meditation rooms, or little workshops.

If you’d rather build a tiny home on wheels that you can always move if you wanted, get this book and check out these free tiny house plans.

    Very cool design and what a great piece of functional yard art. It’s such a contrasting architectural style to what the surrounding area looks like; I wonder how the neighbors feel about it though?

      The guy who makes them was on a show here in England, trying to build his own house. Cool design but at what cost to your wallet???

        Saw that – “Grand Designs”. He is such a gutsy guy. Amazing house that he built but HUGE and BIG $$$$$. Got to give it to him though, run out of money? turn it into a B&B to pay off the massive debt.

        Just makes you wonder though, if you raise kids in a tiny house are they all going to turn around and build massive houses to overcompensate like this guy did. Oh and he makes and sells tiny pods to other people 🙂 I think he is a bit conflicted, none-the-less a really nice guy.
