Each pod sits on a raised platform that allows it to be rotated and positioned depending on the users needs.
Inside, the pods can be tailored in their design. All of the elements can be customized, like the window placement and internal furnishings. Heating (woodburner or underfloor), electrics and insulation options can also be incorporated.
