Having been commissioned to make a bespoke Shepherd's hut for a local family - in need of a spare room, I have since made three, which are sited on our field and rented out to guests.
DESIGNING AND BUILDING A SHEPHERD'S HUT GIVES ME A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO COMBINE THE SKILLS OF CONSTRUCTION I DEVELOPED WHILST BUILDING MY OWN HOUSE, WITH THE THOUGHT PROCESS AND CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT GOES INTO DESIGNING AND MAKING A BESPOKE PIECE OF FURNITURE.
As a furniture maker, I craft the Shepherd's huts with the same care and precision I would use in creating a fine piece of furniture - from solid oak double glazed windows and stable door to a solid wood fitted kitchen; which includes a butlers sink, hob, oven and fridge.
A Shepherd's hut can solve accommodation issues eg: spare room, study, create a new usable space eg: craft/art studio or (with the appropriate planning permission) generate an income - think Airbnb in your garden.
There are many possibilities to maximise space whilst creating a beautifully designed and purpose built structure.
Prices start from £20,000 for a basic design, up to £45,000+ for a fully fitted out, deluxe version.
