“YardPods are built with cold-formed galvanized light gauge steel framing (not wood), which has a high recycled content (25%+) and is 100% recyclable, Steel is stronger and lighter than wood, will not rot, will not shrink, will not warp, will not support mold or infestation, is fire-resistant and has a life in the hundreds of years.”
~ YardPod Factory

“Our manufacturing facility is powered 100% by solar and we utilize a state-of-the-art computer-driven manufacturing process for making our steel frames which virtually eliminates waste. Every piece of steel is cut accurately to length by the automated roll-forming machines, and is assembled on compression tables where everything is screwed together. Whenever practical, we assemble complete panels in the factory, containing external sheathing, insulation and finishes, this minimizes waste, ensures accuracy and virtually eliminates re-work and waste on the job site.

Our manufacturing facility is located at Sonoma Mountain Village, one of the most sustainable developments in the world.”
