Building a Home Office Pod in California with Autonomous

|Dec 21, 2021

The global pandemic has forced countless workers to perform their duties remotely. While certain areas of the world are recuperating, the future of remote working remains uncertain. 

Despite the fact that many offices are resuming work as it was prior to the pandemic, it has become evident that employees do not need to be seated at their desks in order to be efficient, focused, and productive. Therefore, many organizations prefer to keep their staff working from home on a long-term basis. 

This doesn't just save the business money regarding overhead costs, but it is also preferred by many people who have realized the benefits of working from home and enjoying more quality time with their families. 

However, working from home in a way that is productive may be challenging if you don't have a dedicated workspace. Fortunately, work pods in the form of modern backyard office sheds, have provided a simple solution. 

You may have heard of the Autonomous WorkPod, and now you’re ready to build one in your backyard. Here is everything you need to know about building a home office pod in California with Autonomous. 

What Is a Home Office Pod?

Office pods are a growing trend. These intelligently designed workspaces are the result of a shift in work culture. 

While working from home does have its advantages, it certainly has its challenges, too, and getting the silence and freedom to work efficiently can be difficult. Home office pods provide a home away from home where workers can go to escape the hustle and bustle and focus on the task at hand. 

With so many people still working remotely, the home office pod is a booming trend that has undoubtedly taken off in 2021. These little free-standing buildings are known by various names, including acoustic pods, phone booths, and home office capsules. They were primarily designed to create an office space where there isn’t one. 

There are two types of office pods for your home in California. The first is an office pod for the home that is essentially a smaller version designed to create a private space for you to work in within the home. Another type of pod is the outdoor work pod. This type of pod is usually larger and requires more features such as weatherproofing.

Additionally, it has also been designed to be elevated off the ground. This allows it to not only keep bugs, mold, water, and heat out, but it also means that the pod can be set up on virtually any solid surface, unlike many other pods, which leads to the next point.

Before Ordering Your Work Pod, Consider These Factors

Before Ordering Your home office pod in California

Investing in an outdoor home office pod in California is a big deal, and there are certain factors that you must consider before you can order your pod. 


You may have heard the saying “location is everything,” and it is certainly true when it comes to deciding where to put your home office pod. Autonomous WorkPods have been designed to allow you to benefit from your natural environment, so positioning it in a small backyard space where all you have to look at is the fence defeats the purpose. 

Positioning can also affect the amount of natural lighting you receive, so be sure to choose the right space for your new outdoor work area.

Local Requirements

Local Requirements

All homeowners must obtain permission or draw up building plans before renovating their property or adding any permanent fixtures. Therefore, before setting up a home office pod in California, it is essential that you check the regulations in play in your area and obtain any necessary permission from local authorities before you can begin the installation. 


Ensure that the outdoor home office pod in California you choose is large enough to meet your requirements. If you choose a small pod and two people need to use it, you may find that it is counterproductive. 

You also want to ensure that the home office pod is small enough to fit in your backyard. Measure your space to see whether it is large enough to accommodate an outdoor home office pod without causing the space to look cramped or cluttered before you make a purchase.   



Many work pods do not come fully equipped with furniture, so keep aside a portion of your budget for this. The furniture you choose is just as important as the office pod itself because it directly impacts your health. Autonomous has a good range of ergonomic chairs and standing desks to choose from to furnish your home office. 

You can also opt for the fully equipped version of the Work Pod that comes complete with the home office essentials you need. 

Terms and Conditions You Need to Know

Before purchasing your office pod for your home in California, there are a few terms and conditions you should know. 

Trial Policy, Returns, and Warranty

Trial Policy, Returns, and Warranty

The WorkPod includes a three-year warranty. This warranty covers any manufacturer's defects and covers replacements of any components and extends to any equipment that comes with the fully equipped version. Additionally, there is no trial policy for the actual WorkPod. 

Autonomous also offers a 30-day trial period and a 30-day no-hassle return policy for the additional equipment included in the fully equipped version, so you can try it out to determine if it's right for your home office. 


Customers who place an order and receive tracking numbers cannot expect to receive their money back if they cancel the order. In this case, a 30 percent cancellation fee applies. 


While Autonomous is responsible for shipping the prefabricated parts to you (which is free in the United States), construction and assembly remain your responsibility. You may contact the Pod team by sending an email to [email protected] to obtain build-related advice.
