A combination of product design and carpentry qualifications, experience, and genuine excitement for business makes Dan Pleszko the perfect person to have founded YrPod.
We take garden buildings and revolutionise the way they’re made, putting your ideal requirements at the core of what we do.
Having grown up in Norfolk, our founder Dan studied in London and achieved a degree in Product Design - sparking what would become a lifelong obsession with creating functional, beautiful designs that just work for their intended purpose.
One carpentry course, and twelve years working as a carpenter and product manager later, it became clear that there was a gap in the garden building market. Existing companies offered strict options with little to no customisation or spending £50K more for a 'bespoke' design.
When, in reality, these were made the same way, and only a few hours extra goes into making them 'bespoke'.
Enter YrPod. Where function and beauty meet specialism, for truly bespoke garden buildings designed around you.
"I welcome all of my customers, private and commercial, to the Yr Pod workshop. I find an open-door approach key to ensuring customer trust, so everyone is welcome to come and take a look at what we are working on, or to see the manufacture of their made-to-order product"
— Dan Pleszko, Founder
At YrPod, We Put The Focus On You
Even before COVID, founder & director Dan was obsessed with offering truly bespoke, customisable buildings for an affordable price. And when April 2020 came around, YrPod was a team of just two people, working to deliver good quality, bespoke buildings.
Now, we're a team of 17 individuals dedicated to being one of the only garden building companies to offer the highest quality products, made with the best materials at the best prices - with customisation at the heart of what we do.
Each one of our team members brings something unique to YrPod. Whether that's design flair, carpentry experience, materials knowledge or a head for numbers, our team has the skills needed to bring your ideal garden buildings to life.
More importantly, we're a friendly bunch who take pride in everything we create. So you're in safe hands... or Pods.
