Transportable Pod Homes

Transportable Pod Homes: They are a modular way of designing and paying for your home, as and when you need it, as your family grows.

What if I told you that we don’t need to keep building and buying homes and housing the way we have the past 200 years? and that I could show you a way to design and build living spaces which might last 100’s of years instead of 20 or 30 years.

You should never think of “transportable pod homes” as the cheaper alternative, because they are not.  They are instead a  modular way of designing and paying for your home, as and when you need it, as your family grows.

Transportable Pod Homes are modern and architecturally deigned and made of the best and most traditional of materials,  hardwood timber, designer glass and steel,  stainless steel, copper, galvanised iron. ( they are never constructed of any temporary or “short life” fabrics like chalk board or plastics )

Because an elastic home is only as big as you want it to be, you can also pay for it in as you grow you into your home, (or you may be able to avoid having a mortgage all together)

An elastic house allows you to:

  • Buy your house with a longer term view.
  • Have the flexibility of Pay-as-you-go space.
  • Saves money through, smaller initial mortgage payments, which means that you can then afford to pay extra capital payments off the mortgage, (whist you don’t yet have family costs to bear). Meaning more of your house actually belongs to you, rather than the bank.
  • Everytime we trade up, we restart a mortgage, therefore we pay off non of the principle each time ( first seven years pays interest only) plus incurs estate agents fees, Transaction tax, legal fees, each time everyone gets a fat slice of your money.
