Learn to build a Glamping Pod

There are very few courses available that teach you how to build a glamping pod or a Shepherds hut.

So for anyone who would be looking to get into this line of work, would probably have to work for another company to gain the experience.

This is why we are proid to offer short courses and workshops. If you were to buy a glamping pod or a Shepherds hut or any substantial timber building, they come with a hefty price tag. So learning how to build your own is a great way to save money.

We currently offer 2 workshops, a 1 day introduction to framing and a 5 day basic camping pod build. The 1 day workshop gives a good introduction into building the arched frame, that makes up the bones of a pod.

The 5 day workshop will teach you how to build a basic pod. Don't let the size fool you.. this small pod that you will build, will teach you the fundamentals in pod building and allow you, to go on and build a pod to any size you wish.

What you will learn on both courses

Basic health & safety including PPE

Basic carpentry with hand tools and power tools.

The Glamping Pod Courses:

1 Day Introduction:

Framing, joints, structural integrity - during this 1 day you will learn how to assemble a precut frame. How to ensure the arches are correctly fitted and how to ensure structural integrity. This is the bones of a cabin and a great way to start.

Cost: £360 per person

5 Day Full Pod Build

Day 1 - Framing, Joints and structural integrity

Day 2 - front and rear wall

Day 3 - flooring, structural cladding, membranes

Day 4 - External cladding

Day 5 - Doors, windows & finishings

Cost: £1500 (Introductory offer - Normal price £1800)

Once you have completed the 5 day course and to a suitable standard we will offer you the opportunity to be registered on to our Partnership Program. This will give you the option of being entered onto our register of approved installers. We get asked to build pods all over the country and as such it makes sense to have people that we trust and have trained to complete some of our pod builds.

It is a great way to gain experience and earn at the same time. Of course this is optional and you have no obligation to work with us.

If you are interested in any of our courses or would like a bespoke course, then get in touch.

We will be adding more courses and workshops, so keep an eye on the website and social media for updates.
