    You'd be surprised, by the time you buy the appliances and the board/ edging there's not much money to be made, even though it sounds ridiculously expensive

    Steve, of Marcle Leisure, has a home build PVC using removable 'pods' for both kitchen and bathroom..

    interesting project .. http://www.soh.me.uk/

    agree with Dave.. not much money to be made and a very small market for this sort of conversion pods.

    I looked into it when I had my joinery workshop, you need to be machining multiple amounts at the same time to make a wage/ cover overheads and then as you rightly say it's a very small but competitive market

    Finally got around to this and as I see it if you get everything in the pod for £1050 it will cost that in materials to build --It says FROM so I would hazard a guess that the almost 500 quid fridge would be a extra If that's the case then the pod would cost around £500 so £550 for a days work is not bad going -the first one may take a couple of days to make but anything like that you would make templates/patterns so once you have them away you go (y)
