It’s called a Plunk Pod, because it’s built completely off-site, and designed to be plunked down and ready to use wherever it’s needed, whether that’s in a backyard with full hookups, or in a remote location with off-grid systems. It is size is 8.5’X53′ 450 sqft.
Beautifully finished with wide plank wood flooring, 80 year old church beam steps and a sleek euro-style fireplace. A perfect back yard flat or ADU. Warm, comfortable, impressive.
