✴ grand plans: archipod

Image here 

We are planning an extension. 
Hopefully with thoughts and explorations and planning happening this year. 
Building and construction next year. But we'll see. I'm thinking it's going to be a big undertaking. 
We want to do a lot. Expanding backwards and sideways, and up!
I like the planning and dreaming part. I like to peruse the interiors mags looking for ideas and inspiration.
I thought I might share some of my finds with you. That way I can keep track of all the unusual and interesting design ideas I stumble across.
It's a win:win situation!
I just found this in the april copy of Grand Designs
You too could have your very own Hobbit house style studio in your back garden. How quirky!
I love the old and the new. I love that it looks so rustic and fairy tale on the outside and is uber modern and stylish on the inside.
I'm intrigued by the door. Does it open slowly with billowing smoke pouring out in a 'Back to the Future' type of way? Hhmm probably not, but I love it anyway!
It's certainly a leap up from the garden shed. And I do love a good shed!


  1. Imagine having such a thing......the photo looks a little like a teapot too, don't you think?
    Aah to dream!

  2. I want one of these in my garden!!Could sit in there with the cats and watch birds...perfect


  3. I love the archipod. I'm just about to have a studio built in my back garden..... almost tempted to think again!!!!

  4. hmm, that would be perfect in the garden, maybe a mini studio/hideaway/getaway!!

  5. Oh that is glorious, just like a teapot! Or a giant coconut!!
    Do have an extension like that, what fun!
    Best of luck with the planning, this is the fun part- living with dust and disruption is unfortunately what you have to put up with!!
