You can take these prefab pods anywhere.

Hi I am Louis Thompson founder of Nomadic resorts. Thanks for your interest. Firstly I think I need to clarfify the size of the Looper – the looper is 10m long, 4.5m wide and 3.5 m high – 45m2 or 485ft2 for our american friends. This is the size of a typical one bedroom appartment. For Dan- the looper is a membrane structure which will last for 15+years – the pricing starts at 35 000USD. For Duncan – well spotted – the rainwater collection tank acts as ballast to weigh the tent down and there are small footings. Christina – we are currently building the protoype and hope that we will be ready to ship later in the year…we will keep information updated on our facebook page. I think I can say that we are overwhelmed by the positive response and will keep you updated on our first resort.
