Most of our customers will add to this structure, lining it, insulating and producing a Garden office, Summerhouse or accommodation either rented for holiday parks or for private use. The pictures really do not do this building justice, it has to be seen to be appreciated. This is on show at our Norfolk office.

Our Shepherd hut - Gypsy caravan measuring in total 2.41 x 5.01m. It features metal wheels on a very substantial metal chassis. A front porch gives a relaxing place to sit and is accessed via the steps and through two gates which are mounted on double action sprung hinges. Railings surround the porch area.

Large and spacious room inside the shepherd hut is suitable for a number of applications.

Most of our customers will add to this gypsy wagon, lining it, insulating and producing a Garden office, Summerhouse or accommodation either rented for holiday parks or for private use. This is a very large and substantial building and is supplied untreated.

Doors and windows are double glazed.

Use 35mm - 45mm Celotex (or similar) insulation in the walls and rockwool in the roof to create an office or accomodation. Line very cheaply with pine face plywood in the roof or 8mm pine cladding for the walls. Please also see the reviews as other customers who sell these as a business fully made also have some useful advice.

Our Shepherd Hut - Gypsy caravan measures a very large 2.41, x 5.01m overall. It is manufactured from 19mm tongue and grooved timber on a timber frame and metal chassis. A delightful front porch area is accessed via the steps and protected by the railings that surround it.

Felt Shingles:

Some customers like to use our felt shingles on this building. These will certainly enhance the roof. BUT, you will require seven packs and you must make sure you have the felt layer underneath. We also recommend the use of Felt shingle Glue when applying shingles.

Notes:

Supplied untreated to enable you to finish to the standard you require with insulation, panelling, lining, painting etc.

If you require measurements to investigate the possibilities of a traditional tine roof:
  • Width of curve: 2410mm
  • Height: 400mm
  • Roof sheet of 3000mm will give 100mm overhang either side.
Another version of this hut is also available and has doors in the side: Shepherd Hut Deluxe

I would not hesitate to buy another Tuin product. The neatly flat packed hut arrived via an excellent delivery service. Good instruction manual but take a while to familiarize yourself with each stage. Helps to organize and label parts before starting construction. Hut was fully erected over 2 bank holiday weekends ready for painting. Great quality product; extremely attractive in the garden. Well worth the money.

I chose this Shepherds hut/gypsy wagon as I had been looking quite a while for something like this. I am most certainly happy that I chose this model from Tuin. The service I received was excellent from ordering the product to the delivery man. Everything happened when it was said it would & the delivery man was really helpful getting it as close to where we needed it placing. The shepherds hut itself is fantastic. This was our lockdown project & it took us quite a while to get it built (just me & my husband). It is excellent quality & I really love this little retreat I have for myself. Just finishing off the painting as this year it is just going to be used as a summer house but next year will probably fit it all out properly. If you are thinking of buying a shepherds hut I would definitely recommend this one & the company.

The delivery process was excellent. Very helpful driver with very good equipment.

The kit was all there, but without labels it was essential to unload and organise carefully the different components before doing anything.

The instruction book is a nightmare - completely devoid of language and it relies heavily on accurate pictures. The addition of bullet-points and experienced guidelines would be greatly beneficial.

The use of the Torq screws is a problem. The threads quickly wear out and without an angle-grinder handy to sharpen the edges, this could be a problem.

The finished product is very impressive. The hut is a good size and works well.

My only niggle would have to be the use of roofing felt for the roof. Total disaster! I bought some curved roofing sheets which fit well and provide a weather-tight roof, which in our current winters is essential.

Overall, I am very happy. Very good product for the price.

I have to say, I'm impressed with the quality of the shepherds hut. The timber is good quality and fits together very well. Once I'd finally put it together (with a little help) it feels like a really sturdy garden building. The neighbours have already commented on it 'looking fab' which is always a bonus as we wanted something that fitted in with the area. It's definitely a talking point!

Our build was a little non-standard as I didn't take the wheels and sat it on the base pads. I capped off the bottom with OSB and insulated the floor as it'll be used as an office and at its full height (with wheels) may have been a bit intrusive for the neighbours.

The only improvements would be that I'd prefer the instructions to be a little more in depth, generally they do require you to read ahead and could do with a bit more information when you have to repeat an action. It would also be good if there were a few more torx 15 in the set as I think I got two and it seems to be the most used end.

I'm really looking forward to getting the electrics in and finishing it off, it'll have pride of place in our garden for years to come.
