OfficePOD – A Mobilehome Away from Home for Writers

February 1, 2010

 

The folks at OfficePOD believe the ability to work from home is a trend that’s here to stay.  I think their product is ideal for writers with a backyard and who are in need of "space" to write.  You wouldn’t think twice about a shed for housing the lawn tools, a greenhouse, or playhouse for the kids, so why not an office pod?  So often writers find themselves carving out work space at the kitchen table or on the couch – only to be interrupted by the kids, the dog, the telephone or solicitors banging down the front door.

There’s lots of benefits for corporate too, such as reducing commute time, more focused employees, etc, however the OfficePOD would be absolutely ideal for writers seeking solitude and a special place designated solely for the depositing of their brain droppings. The OfficePOD is energy efficient and designed in great part with recycled or recyclable products. Each pod is delivered and constructed by a specialist team and measures approximately 7′ x 7′.  To date, this brilliant idea is only available in the UK for £14,950 ($24,273).

 

I can imagine this trend making its way into future book deal or screenplay negotiations – "I’ll take 50% up front and an OfficePOD out back." For those of us in the USA, perhaps one of these may someday be available at our neighborhood Costco – right next to the prefabricated tree house and the trampoline set.  Hey, anything is possible.

Why are the best things in life like the best inventions always so overpriced? I would hurt a small stuffed animal to have one of those PODS or the Geico lizard – take your pick.

This looks really NIce no doubt it is really exspensive. LIke good make up products you could make it for half the price your self if you are the hany man type. And if not, then this is for you!
If you are areally poor  jsut go get yourself a pop up tent that is light and you can take it anywear. lol

Costco already sells stuff like this. Look at their high end gardening sheds.

Something like this might actually work. Make it small enough to fit in a backpack and super easy to put up and take down and you have a portable office you can take anywhere.

I love the idea, but it would be just as expensive to add a room onto my house.
