Arkipod from the sky

Beautiful day here on the South West Coast so we got a drone to do a fly by and capture some images of the Arkipod in the magnificent setting of Allihies Village on the end of the Beara Peninsula, West Cork, Wild Atlantic Way country.

The weather has been savage the last few weeks with lots of rain and wind speeds of up to 120KMH.

The structure is strong and sound, so no problem there.

The Grass roof building to the left is ten years old and clad in Larch,  just like the Arkipod.

Arkipod what’s yours for

Spare room, office, studio, workshop, rental there are many reasons to buy an Arkipod. Spacious enough to use as an additional space to your home added to your back garden. Or in the countryside tucked away in a field some place. Arkipod fit nicely into any space and are pleasant to the eye.

As an extra source of income for holiday renting, just leave them empty for overnight campers, or furnish them for that real Glamping experience. Depending on how you rent the Arkipod you could expect to regain your investment quickly.

Arkipod Size

Arkipod’s come in many sizes, if the Arkipod is to be delivered it should be between 8 and 10 foot wide and between 12 and 15 foot long. Simply for convenient delivery by truck ten foot is a maximum width, otherwise special permits are required for transport, which even though possible would create inhibitive costs.


Arkipods come in many sizes, delivered by truck or built on site

Arkipod’s can also be built on site which enables a wider build. 12 foot wide is a nice width, lengths of between 16 and 20 foot, easily possible.

If you need a special size just get in touch with us and we will work something out.

Arkipod roof covering

How long will the roof covering of an Arkipod last? This question is answered as much by where the Arkipod is placed as to which roofing material is used.  Under certain types of tree or very close to the sea would be places where the Arkipod could experience harsher conditions. We are open to suggestions and requests on roofing systems, but our preference is for the naturally protected wood, Larch or the classic farm covering, corrugated sheeting.

Larch wood is valued for its tough, waterproof and durable qualities. Top quality knot-free timber is in great demand for building yachts and other small boats, for exterior cladding of buildings, and interior panelling.

The corrugated metal cladding is a fantastic product which is ubiquitous with the Irish farm. We will soon be building an Arkipod here in our yard with metal roofing.

If after many years your roof is starting to show signs of rot or rust, Contact us to remove the roof and re-clad with the covering of your choice. The roof covering protects the build underneath and is easily replaced.

Almost finished the Arkipod

Maybe you are wondering why the site is not complete, I guess it is that way as I have not quite finished. There a couple of pieces missing that are not in stock. Once this is done I will be uploading photos of the finished Pod Outside and in and announcing build times, availability and suggesting uses for your pod.

What’s yours for….

Any way a couple of photos from this afternoon, to make the wait a  bit easier.
