YardPods

YardPods feels like a much more American term for a place to shedwork than a garden office and so maybe Northern California YardPods is onto an industry winner with their prefab, steel framed buildings designed for your back yard/garden (see here for why they think steel is better than wood). You can get kits to do it yourself or get them to build the whole thing. There are some nice touches - LEED Certified recycled cotton fibre insulation, formaldehyde-free plywood, and a range of roof styles. All YardPods are designed and built to order.

  1. As an Englishman, I had a hard time accepting the YardPods name, I would have been much more comfortable with "Garden Room" or "Garden Shed." But here in Northern California, people have "Yards" not Gardens and "Sheds" are perceived as low-cost, often very poor quality buildings for storage.
