• Before starting, please call or visit your local Planning Department and  check whether or not there are any restrictions on building on your site and whether or not you will need any permits. You will also need to determine the setbacks from your property lines. You can do this yourself, or we can do it for you with our YardPod Site Plan.
  • In most areas, you can build a detached structure which is not for living in, up to 120 sq ft in area. However, some authorities impose stricter conditions by limiting the size and/or the height.
  • Once you know what is possible, please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.
  • There are two primary ways forward:
    • You can Do-It-Yourself, with or without help, or
    • You can hire a local contractor to build it for you.

Do-It-Yourself (DIY):

Hire a Local Contractor to build your YardPod:

    • First, purchase a YardPod Construction Drawing Set from YardPods.com, or have us prepare a Custom YardPod Construction Drawing Set for you.
    • Select a short-list of licensed contractors and invite them to submit a quotation. If you do not have favorites, we can help you to find them.
    • Review the price quotes and contracts, ask whatever questions you have, select one, sign the order form and arrange payments.
    • The builder will commence work on an agreed schedule.
