PODhouse’s Arched Micro-Cabins

PODhouse is a German company that specialises in building tiny arched cabins for individuals and businesses alike.


PODhouse offer three models; the Menhir, Cauma, and Plaun. The Menhir and Cauma are both 3.9 meters in length, whereas the Plaun is slightly larger at 5.9 meters. Each pod is 2.6 meters from its base to the peak of the roof, allowing them to be transported via trailer to their owners site.



Their size and lightweight construction allows them to be craned or forklifted into position. Designed to sleep up to 4 people comfortably (the Plaun model), these little cabins are perfect for weekend getaways, or glamping.

Each pod features double glazed windows, FSC certified wood, integrated forced ventilation and wiring for lighting and power outlets.

The substructure is treated and contains steel rails for transporting it with a forklift. As can be seen from the pictures, the pods are designed for a cold climate with the walls, floor and ceiling being packed with insulation.
