YrdPod

The YrdPods are designed by award winning architects Kreis Grennan Architecture and crafted as a beautiful, minimal architectural statement, providing a flexible space, sitting comfortably in urban or rural sites. YrdPods are a type of tiny homes, a permanent and alternative structure to conventional house additions.

What are YrdPods?
It’s a Pod, located in a Yard. The dictionary defines a Pod as: streamlined enclosure, housing, or detachable container of some kind; and Yard as: a piece of enclosed ground adjoining or surrounding a house or other building.
The YrdPod tiny homes are designed by award winning architects Kreis Grennan Architecture and crafted as a beautiful, minimal architectural statement providing a flexible living space, sitting comfortably in urban or rural sites.

Why a YrdPod?
YrdPods are a type of tiny homes that makes architecture accessible for everyone. They are not the type of tiny houses on wheels, but a permanent structure located in backyards. A YrdPod is a flexible and affordable alternative to conventional building additions, for those who don’t have a big budget but want great architecture.
The pods provide flexible spaces, catering for the changing needs of humans throughout life stages. What initially was built as a music studio for the kids becomes a study for parents working from home, later an independent living space for the daughter in university and eventually a secondary dwelling providing additional income in retirement for the home owners.

How are the Pods constructed?
uilt on a solid concrete slab, the walls and roof are constructed from engineered panels, finished outside in matt-black corrugated metal sheets and inside in oiled birch plywood with expressed black joints. The roof is of a low profile to avoid dominating the existing space and to blend into established backyards or nature settings.
Large floor to ceiling windows enhance the sense of space, allowing natural light and air to flow through the pods. The joinery is designed with intelligent storage options, beautiful detailed in white high-pressure laminate plywood with exposed edges. The bathroom is finished in welcoming, warm yellow with white fixtures and black fittings.

Are the YrdPods sustainable?
BThe YrdPod are designed to use passive cooling and heating, capturing cooling breezes cross ventilating through full height louvred windows and an earth coupled slab with thermal mass for passive heating. Low power LED light fixtures throughout minimise energy consumption, and an optional PV solar panel and battery system make the pod capable to be off-grid.
Low embodied energy by using light-weight and local sourced building materials, together with construction with FSC certified plantation timber and plywood sheets ensure an environmentally sensitive approach to construction.

Does a YrdPod need building approval?
Building approval requirements vary based on the intended use, the local government area, zoning and planning controls.
Exempt – No approval: The YrdPod complies with the requirements set-out in the NSW Exempt Development Code and can be built as a non-habitable structure without planning approvals.
Complying Development: In most cases a fast-tracked development approval allows expedited approval of developments by a private certifier.
Council Development Application DA: Where exempt or complying development are not possible, a DA with council must be lodged. The small footprint and environmental impact makes it easy for YrdPod to be approved.

YrdPod Cost & Time
The YrdPods are one of the best permanent tiny houses in Australia; visually beautiful, solid built and durable for the future. There are many competitors in Australia offering generic, low-cost tiny houses at a lower price, but lacking the aesthetics, quality of construction and project delivery of a YrdPod.
Through the use of engineered and pre-fabricated building materials, the YrdPod can be built in and fitted out in a short timeframe, built in as little as 4 weeks. The architect will manage the project from site analysis, approvals, construction to completion.
Prices for a YrdPod start from $65,000 for the S size pod to $110,000 for the large L+ pod with kitchenet and bathroom. Prices are exclusive of site establishment and approval costs. All sites vary in approvals, complexity, access, and other variables – we provide a custom-tailored proposal for prospective buyers at a cost of $385.
