YardPod Design OptionsYardPods are available in many different sizes, configurations, and finishes which customers can mix and match to produce a highly personalized YardPod. Every YardPod is unique.

YardPods are built in the YardPod Factory using prefabricated modular panels for the floor, walls, and roof and delivered to the building site for assembly and final finishing by YardPod Builders. This allows us to build in a controlled factory environment, ensure quality materials and finishes, and minimize time on site. The end result is very high quality at a lower price and less owner hassle compared to traditional intrusive and costly build-it-all-on-site methods.

For customers requiring an extra customized YardPod, we offer a Custom Design Service where we apply the same design technology and prefabrication methods to customer-specified sizes, configurations and finishes. More about our Custom Design Service.

Within the greater San Francisco Bay Area, we prefer to install the foundations, deliver and install the floor, walls and roof, and complete the waterproof membrane, even when a customer wants to undertake the internal and external finishes. This ensures that the building is square and level, waterproof, and is firmly attached to the foundations.

A complete 10ft x 12ft YardPod starts at under $20,000 (plus tax). Actual pricing will depend on the level of finishes and the number and specification of the door and windows.

We welcome questions and are available to discuss any YardPod related issue, without charge, including whether or not we have a solution that meets your needs.
