We could build cheaper, but we don’t.

Plain Huts have a wide range of Shepherds Huts for sale, built to your specification. Our shepherds huts are built with great care and use the best materials for the job.  All Plain Huts are fully insulated with closed cell insulation; the carcase framework uses tanalised timber and has a breathable membrane on the outside.  The intention is to build to the same high standards you would expect in your own home.

The chassis is built using oak with steel stub axles and cast iron wheels. The wheels are cast to our own pattern inspired by a local Shepherd’s Hut. The Hut uses two large wheels 1000mm in diameter and two smaller wheels 700mm in diameter.

If you would like more information about our Shepherds huts for sale, please call 07903313922 or contact us to request an information pack.

Our Shepherds Huts are built to your specifications and therefore the following is a pricing guide. Prices quoted include VAT.

Huts

Wheels

Without its cast iron wheels the traditional shepherds hut would in fact be; a hut! Originally the wheels were integral to the function of the hut. They allowed the hut to be towed along rough tracks to reach the flock. There are a variety of designs and much argument may be had about which design is most authentic.

In our Plain Hut we have occasionally broken with tradition, opting for a fresh contemporary solution, for example; with our lovely powder coated aluminium windows. Where the cast iron wheels are concerned, however, we returned to traditional ways. The function of the wheels today is to transform the shepherds hut from the mundane to the amazing. To fulfil this requirement we have had patterns made using the wheel design similar to that of  an old shepherd’s hut belonging to a neighbour and have had the wheels cast at a local foundry.

The wheels are two different sizes. The smaller wheel diameter is 700mm and allows the wheel to move underneath the hut as it is steered. The larger wheel is a whopping 1000mm in diameter and you really do not want to have your toes anywhere near it as it is lifted onto the axles.

We have left our wheels to age naturally; the rust is superficial; does not affect the strength of the casting and is a beautiful colour. Cast iron does not rust in the same way that mild steel does. It is possible to paint the wheels but I suggest you think carefully before embarking on this. Think maintenance!

Our wheels on our shepherds huts are made to our own patterns and cannot be purchased elsewhere. They are bigger and more impressive than most other wheels available. If you plan to build your own shepherd’s hut and need a set of wheels we would be happy to supply them.
