Shepherd Hut Inspiration
A customer has sent me today a CD of their pictures of our shepherd hut, Gypsy Wagon. This is their pictorial story of the arrival, installation and final finishing of their shepherd hut that you may enjoy, the finishing is of particular inspiration if you have, or are considering this building.

Shepherd hut Chassis
Main outside rails and chassis is installed
All the cross members and rails are in and the floor can be laid
Floor and veranda is laid
Walls and front and rear ‘apexes’ are fitted
Roof hoops are fitted
Steps and veranda parts are installed
Roof boards are nailed onto the hoops
The beauty of our Shepherd huts / Gypsy wagons is that they can be customised to whatever you want and this is why so many customers buy our buildings and several businesses exist because of it.
Up to the picture above this was a standard install and now it gets interesting.
Mr U now started to make his own modifications and changes. The following is non standard and not supplied by us but may inspire your own build.
Ignoring our supplied roofing felt Mr U is using a corrugated roofing material
Paint starting to be applied in traditional colours
Additional battens in the walls and laminate flooring is installed. An electrical circuit is also now in place.
A stunning oak laminate floor fitted on top of the standard floor
Insulation boards fitted in the wall panels.
Timber clad lining is being fitted
Tongue and groove timber lining – we can also supply lining boards of 18mm and 27mm.
Lining complete and starting to paint for the final finish.
The finished Shepherd hut / Gypsy Wagon.
There has been a huge amount of work in this project but with building of this standard often sold in excess of £10,000 a little work yourself can pay off if you have the time and DIY skills.
These are the finished pictures:
Frosted glass motif in the rear window
A stunning writing desk feature
Looking towards the rear of the shepherd hut – an amazing finish.
The completed Hut – Stunning!
Thank you Mr U for taking the time to photograph and send me these pictures. I hope my present was thanks enough for the inspiration you have given.
