What is a Thinkpod?

Our ThinkPods are architecturally designed backyard pods that are constructed with high-quality materials. Experience productivity in a space for the creative mind without distractions.

Heavily insulated

Our pods are heavily insulated with high thermal performance insulation on the walls (R-2.7), subfloor (R-1.5), and roof (R-3.8).

Double glazed

Double glazed windows and doors are standard features of our backyard studios, along with flyscreens.

Plasterboard & Painted

Internal walls are constructed with plasterboard. Both the internal and external walls are painted in any colour of your choosing.

Custom Design

We work closely with you to design and build a backyard office that meets your specific requirements. You will have a dedicated design consultant and project manager assisting throughout the entire process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Building Permit?
Our backyard pods are under 10 square metres and are classified as Class 10a buildings, which means that they typically do not require a building permit. As part of the first stage, we compile a property report to determine whether a permit is necessary. If a minor permit is required, we can handle the application process.
Are They Craned In?
If you live within an hour of our factory in Moorabbin, we can avoid the additional cost of craning by building the backyard pod on-site. Crane costs vary depending on distance, and we also need to conduct accessibility checks related to the use of a crane on your property.
Can we customize?
We understand that each of our clients have different needs so our choices for customisation are extensive. 30% of the pods we build are completely bespoke.
Do I Need to Pour Concrete?
We use Surefoots as our foundation, which eliminates the need to pour concrete. Our levelled pods can be installed on an unlevelled surface. Another benefit of this foundation system is that the pod can be quickly relocated using a crane.
How Do We Connect the Pod to Electricity?
We can handle all electrical work, including getting a data connection to your backyard room. If you opt for an air-conditioner, we will need a wire from the mains. If you have an electrician familiar with your property, you can handle it privately and bring the connection to the proposed location of the backyard studio.

I highly recommend Garden Studios, they have been great to deal with throughout the entire process and very pleased to have our studio ready. Even with many challenges of lockdowns, the team were able to find solutions to get the project up and running and then built on time. We were really impressed with the very friendly and professional approach of the whole team.

I cannot recommend Garden Studios more highly - such a professional company & the nicest people we could ever wish to work with, constructing our garden office pod. It was such a positive experience to work with Jana, Kathleen & Max throughout the entire process from initial meetings to completion. In spite of the 2 week construction shut down, everything has worked smoothly & professionally & I extend my appreciation to the whole team. Thank you - we are absolutely delighted.

Garden Studios were an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish! No problem was too big or small, and we managed to work through everything with minimal fuss, despite this tricky COVID-affected time we live in. Joseph & the whole team worked hard to help us fully realise our dream backyard office. They take great pride in their work, and go out of their way to make sure their clients are happy with the quality of the build. We couldn't be happier with our amazing new office. Look forward to hopefully one day working with the team again for whatever our next dream build is!

Right from our first contact with Garden Studios we have been impressed with their friendly professionalism in delivering the product that we wanted. Promises and appointments were kept, helpful suggestions were made, we were kept informed of progress at all stages. They obtained the necessary planning approval from our local council on our behalf. We now have a well finished office pod in our back yard which looks like it has always been there.

We have been struggling to make a decision on the best way to downsize and are looking at either building a Granny flat or buying a townhouse. We will be retiring soon and cannot make the wrong decision, so asked Joe's advice on either building a Granny flat(with no title) or buying a townhouse off plan. Without any regard for profit , he immediately advised us to buy a townhouse. It is so rare to find someone who puts others needs before their own, offers unconditional advice and who has many years experience in the property market For anyone looking for advice and guidance on down sizing and buying a Granny flat, we do not hesitate to recommend Joe and Alex who are absolutely honest ,empathetic and very professional with advice and suggestions. If we cannot buy the townhouse we will definitely be building our Granny flat with Garden Studios.
