The Build

We work in the elements when we build our huts outside our home on The Black Isle, so know the conditions these huts have to endure in the Scottish Highlands. For this reason we have developed a few alternative methods that you wouldn't see from a competitors Shepherds Hut:


Roof

Our roofs are constructed from marine grade ply, which is then overlayed with fiberglass and resin, sanded and covered in a gel top coat to finish. A fiberglass roof will last for more than 30 years with no visual deterioration, will have less heat loss and is very strong and lightweight. 

This is a more expensive way of doing a Shepherds Hut roof, but we believe it's a better surface to face the battering the harshest climate in the UK can throw at it:


"Pound for pound fiberglass is stronger than sheet metal but it will not rust – perfect for outside use or in locations near water, especially salt water. ... Unlike metal, plastic, and wood; fiberglass has the least expansion and contraction with heat, cold and/or stress."


A metal roof in cold conditions can suffer condensation on the underside, even a well insulated roof can develop this issue, which will ultimately cause damp on the inside of your hut.


We Offer a 25 year guarantee on our fiberglass roofs. Ask any of our competitors if they will offer you that on their metal roof!


 -However we understand that some people love the tradition, so we can still provide a rolled metal roof, although not with that sort of guarantee. 



Some more interesting bits to know.


We use reclaimed, vintage cast iron wheels that are well over 50 years old, have stood the test of time and add a rustic touch, in keeping with the tradition and rural nature of a shepherd hut.


Our wooden Chassis is fixed and built from pressure treated heartwood (Grown locally where possible!)


The hut is completely wrapped in a waterproof, breathable membrane and fully insulated- floor, walls and ceiling, with Earth Wool.


The Spruce exterior is finished in our signature distressed paint work- Although we can offer Larch, Ceder and Oak cladding on request!


All windows and doors are made in house and are fully double glazed. This means we can offer many different styles and configurations. We always try to make a feature with glass.



The Ultimate in a Luxury Space

Heating- We offer a range of heating options, including wood burning stove, Calor Provance gas stove heater, underfloor heating and space saving designer radiators.

Flooring- Options include Solid Wood (oak), Bordeaux Pine (Parquet, Herringbone, Burnt Pine), Engineered Wood Flooring, Laminate, Vinyl and tile.

Kitchen- Bespoke units with hard wood worktop. These can be as simple or fully furnished as you want. Whether you fancy a bit of worktop to make a cuppa, or a well equipped space fitted out with all the kit.

Bathroom- A choice of "normal" plumbed in toilet, Seperrat Composting (waterless toilet) or hand built Thunder Box with composting loo, basin and shower, perfect for glamping accommodation! 

Bed and seating- Again with many options available, we can provide a super comfy fixed double bed, pull out day bed, bunks, pull down bed over folding table with benches and more.... all with different storage options. 

We hand craft a full range of furniture too, using high quality, traditional materials so the interior design choices are endless.


We offer a "plug and play" service which means on the day your hut is delivered it is ready to go, for you and your family to enjoy, or start making your business revenue.
