Lawyer Nicolas Oldham and his wife moved to the historic English village of Berkhamsted for the good schools for their children, but their jobs are still in London. To avoid the commute when possible, a few years ago Oldham began working from home a couple of days a week. At first he used the edge of the sofa as his office, but stepping on his kids toys and never being able to find a pen, was less than ideal.

A longtime fan of tiny shelters- in his backyard he has a shed, a greenhouse and a life-sized dollhouse-, Oldham decided to add an office pod. Though unlike his other humble shacks, he bought a ready-made Archipod that Treehugger's Lloyd Alter calls "a beautiful shed in a dome" and "more of a land yacht than a shed".

Like his shedworking compatriots Roald Dahl and Virginia Wolff, Oldham uses his small shelter to find the isolation he needs to work.
