Originally available only in the UK, Judy Bernier is now manufacturing them in Maine for the US and Canadian markets.
After many long talks, FaceTimes and emails, we decided crafting these in Maine would not only be a way of making archipod available here in the United States and Canada, in addition it would be a way to bring commerce to Maine. The main component of the pods, timber, grows in abundance here. Maine is, after all, called the Pine Tree State. There are folks who make insulation out of blue jeans. The shingles for the pods come from a Mom and Pop operation a few towns over. The cedar for these is harvested right here in Maine. The domes are made in Calais. The flooring, reclaimed, is from the bottom of the Penobscot River. Sourcing local products has been one of the more rewarding parts of this whole journey. I have met some incredible people along the way.
