How it all began!

Its nice to know a bit about the background of things we like and in today’s frenetic world many of us value a company or a product that we can see has honest roots. It struck me that perhaps I should share with you how Plain Huts came about.

Plain Huts came into being in the autumn of 2012. My husband and I had bought a small property ‘with potential’ in the village of Tilshead a few years beforehand and had been working all weekends to release said ‘potential’.  In four years we transformed a small bungalow into a contemporary chalet style home using galvanised steel, cedar and glass.

Simultaneously, I had noticed two shepherd’s huts in the fields locally whilst walking the dog. They struck me as charming simple structures; built for a purpose with no unnecessary frills.  As time went by I found myself drawn to these structures and reimagined them built for today’s demands and using the materials we had used on the house.

I felt sure that the shepherd’s hut could be reinvented to be a contemporary space that worked alongside today’s homes.

The idea took hold and so, in the summer of 2012 I left teaching and with the help of my husband and son-in-law built our first hut. My sister took some lovely photos and we organised a web site. Hey presto, a business! But what to call it; Tilshead is located in the middle of Salisbury Plain. It didn’t take long to start playing around with ideas around that theme and so, Plain Huts was born.

Plain Huts’ aim is to build contemporary shepherd’s huts whilst keeping the essence of the original huts. We take pride in the quality of our workmanship and love to build a bespoke solution for our customers.
