The pod is made up of two connected containers covered with Chromadek. To boost the pod’s structural integrity, support beams were added between the container ceiling and the sloping steel container roof. Indigenous garden design by Johann van Biljon of Intaba Environment Services
Heat-resistant steel panels cut from the containers, such as this one behind the fireplace on the stoep and another one in the living area, were built in to enhance structural integrity. Sustainable Lunawood was used for the deck. The 2.5m-long dining table is a second-hand find that Claire restored and painted black.
