For those of you who work at home, but are longing for a workspace that's more distinct than your dining room table or a desk crowded into the bedroom, the OfficePOD is probably something you regularly dream about. This uber-modern small building can easily be tucked into a corner of your property, creating a separate work environment form your home. The company, which is located in London, originally promoted the OfficePOD as a way to reduce commuting, and the time and environmental costs associated with it. However, for the at-home worker or small business owner, the concept translates perfectly on this side of the pond.
For about $24,000, an OfficePOD can be delivered and assembled in your backyard in a day. And if you're not willing to commit, there are lease options as well. Since the pods are only about seven feet square, the small size ensures that in almost all cases, building permits are not needed to proceed with installation.
