Apologies for the slightly dark picture, we finished cladding the CargoPod on a slightly grey day in mid December (2016).
For those who this is the first visit to our website, I hope you’ll look at our CargoPod and think what a sophisticated looking Glamping Pod it is. For those who have stayed with us before, or visited our web pages from April 2014 (when the CargoPod was born) until December 2016, they will be looking at something rather alien to them, for what lurks beneath the sophisticated Western Red Cedar cladding is the original Purple CargoPod.
We loved the CargoPod just as it was and so did the many guests who stayed with us during that initial period. So why did we change it, you are bound to ask yourselves? Well, there was one neighbour, who didn’t like us having the CargoPod, so they complained to the council. In their wisdom the council decided it was unsuitable, so with a lot of deliberation over what would be suitable, we were finally forced to clad it in the lovely Cedar timber. Now, don’t misunderstand us, we really like the Cedar cladding too, it does look rather smart, but we really did also like the original CargoPod in all it’s purpleness (Rob’s choice!). So for those nostalgic guests, here’s a before picture to reminisce over.
By the way, the container inside is exactly the same as before, with all it’s nice little purple touches and the log fired hot tub on the deck.
Plus it’s had a full re-paint inside (December 2016) and in the next quiet moment will also be having some nice new flooring added. It’s also getting a new sofabed and matching bean bag (yes all in purple and yes, Rob’s choice), in mid January 2017. Pictures will be updated then.
