Save $$$ thousands on construction

If you’ve got a big enough budget, you might want to put all your eggs in one basket with one of those companies promising to do every little thing for you.

They make a profit on every little thing, and then on doing every little thing, which is why ‘turnkey’ building solutions are too costly for most people.

On the other hand, if you’re happy to do more of the decision-making and organisation yourself, you’ll save money, de-risk your project, and have more to spend on nice things like internal fittings, finishes, and furnishings.

To help you along the way, we’ve produced a handy guide to planning for a pod-building project, and we hope it’s helpful.
