The Hobby Pod from Garden Hideouts provides a very adaptable space with a host of options to help you get the most out of your particular interest. From a half glazed wall for extra daylight to a quality work bench and stacks of storage, this is a place to get away from it all and really immerse yourself in your hobby.
The sales consultants at Garden Hideouts will be pleased to sit down with you and talk over exactly what you need in your Hobby Pod. This could be spotlights to brightly illuminate an area for intricate work or extra drawers to keep everything tidily tucked away. All in all, you can rely on achieving the perfect space for your pastime that will be cosy and comfortable all year round.

The exposed edge plywood gives contemporary styling to this practical item of furniture. Includes drawers and storage units (details below).
The workbench is fitted with a number of neat storage options to keep tools, materials and so on very close to hand. On the left hand side are doors and storage units, on the right a set of drawers. Or if preferred, the workbench can be fitted with drawers on both sides. Above the workbench are 4 floating shelves with downlighters set inside them for an atmospheric effect. Ideal for display, the shelves can be painted in any colour of choice. Against one wall is a Pigeon-Hole unit which has exposed edge plywood to visually harmonise with the workbench. Each side is 18mm thick with a lacquered decorative top. If required, doors can be fitted to one or all of the pigeon-holes.
The entire floor is fitted with Quick-Step Impressive laminate flooring, which not only looks aesthetically pleasing but also has a water-repellent ‘Hydroseal’ coating to provide a durable and spill-proof surface.
Underfloor heating combines with high-efficiency insulation to provide a supremely warm and comfortable environment. The heating is operated via a timer unit for maximum convenience and economy.
The standard lighting is a set of downlighters in a crushed stainless finish. However, lights can be provided to suit different needs, including directional spotlights. All light switches are in a polished chrome finish.
Polished chrome 240v sockets are spaced around the Pod to suit specific needs. All sockets come complete with a USB adapter.

Just to say thank you to you and your team. The Pod is amazing and the guys who built it were incredibly hardworking craftsmen. The result is perfect and the whole experience was very smooth...Mr Dix
My therapy pod... I would just like to say, I am so impressed by the work and skill carried out. The pod looks amazing and all my clients are so impressed by the whole structure and all the little finishing touches ie. the rope and fittings. I liked that I was kept informed and updated throughout with pictures of the progress, nothing seemed like too much. Your team's attitude towards myself, the pod and the care of my house was excellent. They put up with all my annoying questions too! You have a great team working for you and I feel it's important for you to know this from a happy customer. All my clients want a pod in their gardens now!...Michelle Riach
Thank you too to everyone involved in building my Shepherds Hut, I love it. This morning we had a removals firm move all my fabrics and yarns into the hut and everything is going to look wonderful, after a massive tidying session! I am delighted and will enjoy working in such a special space. ...Christine Bell
