The Design Process

Achieving the ideal configuration for your glamping or office pod is a collaborative process between us and our valued clients. We've found that the most successful projects typically follow a simple yet effective method: start by ordering the pod with our expertly designed internal walls and layout. Then, you take the reins to add the specific amenities you desire.

  

The method that works best for our clients is a collaborative approach where we work closely with you to create the ideal internal layout for your pod. Here's how it typically unfolds:

  1. Needs Discussion: Together with you, the client, we thoroughly discuss your requirements and vision for the pod.
  2. Design and 2D Drawings: Once we have a clear understanding of the project scope, we produce 2D drawings with dimensions. These drawings provide a clear visual representation of the pod's layout.
  3. Pod Production: Based on these 2D drawings and your preferences, we proceed to manufacture the entire structure, including internal walls. We also generate 3D renderings that precisely showcase how the finished pod will look.
  4. Kitting Out the Pod: Upon delivery of the pod, we leave the customization and addition of internal furnishings in your capable hands. This allows you to see the pod in person and make informed decisions about the appliances and furnishings you wish to add.
  5. Electrical and Plumbing: We ensure that the pod is designed to make the connection and configuration process straightforward. Your end electrician and plumber can easily handle these aspects.

       

     

This collaborative method streamlines the process, making it hassle-free and enjoyable. We take your ideas and transform them into reality.

This approach has proven to work exceptionally well with our clients. Here's why: it allows you to clearly communicate your vision. We work closely with you to create the foundational structure that aligns with your goals. Once that foundation is in place, you have the freedom to embellish it with your preferred kitchen and entertainment accessories, perfectly tailored to your tastes.

So, if you're ready to embark on an extraordinary project and bring your vision to life, just let us know what you want to achieve. We're here to work hand-in-hand with you, ensuring that every detail is just as you envision.

Together, we create the perfect space for your glamping adventure or professional sanctuary.

   

Design Layout

Here we showcase three design layouts as examples to you, which have been completed for previous clients. These designs are alternative options to the layout of the "Valhalla Ice".

  

Layout 1: Four x Single Bed Barrel

In this unique configuration, our barrel has been tailored to accommodate four single beds, making it perfect for glamping sites that already provide cooking and washroom facilities. This design comfortably sleeps four guests and offers ample space for a relaxing dining area that can be fitted with a television and other modern amenities.

While this layout doesn't include a bathroom by default, we can seamlessly incorporate one if it aligns with your specific requirements. Enjoy the comfort and convenience of this four-bed barrel for a memorable glamping experience.

  

Estimated Price For a Similar Configuration: £9,995

  

Layout 2: Incorporated Washroom

In this layout, the "Valhalla Ice" boasts its own incorporated bathroom. This design offers a private washroom complete with a compact handbasin and toilet, ensuring the convenience of on-site facilities. For this particular project, a separate shower wasn't necessary, as the camping resort provided shower facilities on-site. However, if desired, we can easily incorporate a shower into this configuration to meet your specific needs.

   

Estimated Price For a Similar Configuration: £10,495

     

Layout 3: Incorporated Mini Kitchen

Continuing from the previous example, this "Valhalla Ice" barrel takes a different approach. Instead of a washroom, it features a fully equipped mini kitchen. One side of this room features a full-sized fridge, while the opposite side boasts a microwave and sink. This kitchen setup is perfect for those who value culinary convenience while enjoying their glamping experience.

This layout allows for cooking and meal preparation in a compact yet functional space. The mini kitchen is well-equipped, featuring not only a full-sized fridge, microwave, and sink but also a kettle for hot beverages. Guests can enjoy the convenience of making hot coffee, sandwiches, cold beverages, and hot meals, all within a contemporary and cosy environment.

Foundations

A crucial part of achieving longevity and getting the most out of our new barrel is establishing a solid foundation. An inadequate foundation can lead to structural issues, potentially causing cracks in the barrel. Uneven placement of the barrel may alter its geometric shape, resulting in twisting of doors and windows, as well as the formation of gaps. In this section, we'll delve into the essential considerations for the base and access to the sides of your barrel, guiding you through the process of creating the perfect foundation for your outdoor space.

    

     

Access for Installation & Maintenance

For seamless installation and maintenance of our barrels, access to all four sides is essential. We recommend allowing approximately 300mm (about 12 inches) of clearance around each side of the barrel. However, allowing more space should never be overlooked.

In instances where the barrel is positioned in a tight corner or a confined space, it's important to consider the potential challenges this may pose for barrel maintenance. Restricted access can hinder routine visual inspections, which are typically recommended every six months. This regular check-up is crucial to identify and address any issues promptly, preventing them from escalating into more significant problems. Therefore, when placing the barrel in a snug location, please be mindful of the potential maintenance difficulties it may entail.

 

Base

The barrel's foundation is the bedrock upon which your outdoor relaxation retreat will stand. To maintain the barrel's structural integrity and prevent warping over time, it's imperative that all of our barrels are fitted on a level and sturdy surface. We do not recommend installing any of our barrels on uneven ground, grass, or generally unsuitable surfaces. Instead, we advocate for the ideal base, which includes options such as concrete, tarmac, patio stones, or even a structurally sound patio decking.

To ensure proper weight distribution and stability, it is crucial that the full, complete base is in contact with the ground. 

It's crucial to avoid any substantial depressions or gullies on the base surface. A depression of more than 3/4 of an inch (20mm) at any point across the base can lead to undesirable consequences, such as the barrel's floor being pushed down or bowed up in the middle. This not only poses structural issues but may also hinder you or your clients enjoyment of the barrel.

 

An inadequate base for any barrels can result in gaps forming. Gaps may develop in the barrel's doors or walls. These gaps can have several consequences, including:

  1. Reduced Insulation: Gaps in the structure compromise the insulation of the barrel, making it less energy-efficient and potentially leading to temperature fluctuations inside.
  2. Pest Intrusion: Openings can allow pests to enter the barrel, which could create hygiene and maintenance issues.
  3. Water Ingress: Gaps may permit water to seep into the barrel, potentially causing damage to the interior and its contents.
  4. Aesthetic Deterioration: Uneven gaps can mar the barrel's appearance and affect its overall aesthetics.

It's essential to ensure that the barrel is placed on a level and appropriate foundation to prevent these issues.

Note:

If our recommendations for building / choosing a suitable base are not adhered to, the warranty of the barrel will be nulled!

    

How to Verify Your Barrel Base

Checking the solidity and levelness of your barrel base is crucial to ensure a flawless installation and prolonged usage. You can follow these simple steps to confirm its suitability:

  • Use a level, a straight piece of material, alongside a spirit level to check for any rocking or depressions exceeding 3/4 of an inch (20mm).
  • For added peace of mind, consider consulting a local builder or landscaper to confirm that the surface is level, ensuring a solid foundation for your outdoor barrel.

   

Get Our Opinion

If you have any doubts or questions about the surface where your barrel will be installed, please reach out to us. We are dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and expert assistance throughout the process.

To facilitate a comprehensive assessment of your barrel base, we invite you to share images via email to sales@homelivingluxury.com. Please include the following details in your email, which will help us evaluate your situation accurately and efficiently:

    

  1. Images: Attach 3-5 images of your preferred barrel base. This visual information is crucial for our assessment.
  2. Additional Information: If there are any specific details or noteworthy aspects related to your base, please provide them in the email. This may include any unusual features or conditions.
  3. Contact Number: Include your preferred contact number, allowing us to reach out to you promptly.
  4. BarrelType/Model: Kindly, mention the barrel type, model and size you are interested in. This will help us tailor our guidance to your specific needs.
