We’ve posted a few interesting backyard pods lately. Modern and not entirely practical (as some of you have pointed out!) This one though, I think you’ll agree, just might work. In fact, it’s so well-designed you may end up spending an awful lot of time in the backyard. It’s called the Cowboy and is part of a collection of modern prefab from Form & Forest. “Form & Forest is the brainchild of Jeff and Ryan Jordan. Aside from being brothers, they also happen to share a dual passion for both great design and weekend escapes to the cabin. Form & Forest is the result of the happy marriage of these disparate yet complimentary passions.”

The UK-designed Archipod looks like it dropped off a rather large tree and landed in your garden. The stand-alone home office is a cedar shingled timber pod with plastered interior walls and a semicircular desk area. There’s also a large skylight and plenty of room for storage.
Looking at Archipod’s website I feel they must have been reading Lifework -here’s a piece from their front page – “The way people work is changing – the cost and inconvenience of commuting to work everyday is increasing, whereas advances in computer and networking technology are making the viability of working from home a realistic alternative to travelling to an office.” Yep. We’d noticed that too. And now we’ve got a lovely timber pod to work from! I’ve contacted the company to see if they ship to the US. Via Mother Nature Network’s Matt Hickman.
