Pods all stored away

Project In Progress

As spring has well and truly sprung, so we spring into action, demounting our pods and storing them away for our clients that choose to change their outside space for the summer. 

The Allpod's great design allows them to be dismantled into their component parts - transported or moved away from site and packed away - before being reinstalled in the Autumn - the ultimate in flexibility.
