Wall gardens

I think that the idea of a wall garden is great! Now anyone who lives in an Urban setting or where space is at a premium can grow their own food.

Outdoor office spaces

5.30.2012

During the Summer months I often work outside. I find that I work better when I am surrounded by trees and can breathe in the fresh air. I also love to hear the birds and watch the squirrels sprinting from tree to tree. A couple of years ago I came across a structure called the cube. It was a free standing structure that had four sides that were half open and half glass. It was very Zen and I thought that it would be a great space to work in. Today there are some much more advanced versions of the Cube that are made to be outdoor offices. Check out these examples from POD.

Introducing the Micro Pod

and the Glide Pod
