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.

If you require measurements to investigate the possibilities of a traditional tine roof:
  • Width of curve: 2410mm

  • Roof sheet of 3000mm will give 100mm overhang either side.

loads of nailing for the floor and roof but looks amazing.
now green painted with lovely touchesof oak stain on frames etc
insulation. we used kingspan 25mm and obd board under the floor .
in the interior walls we used king span again ;
wiring 4 walllights and 4 double plugs rcd consumer unit fed vis armoured underground cable.
roof felted and superquilt alu.insulation with a full corrrugated steel and black plasticed roof kit .
great company ,Paul the boss so helpful direct sheet roofing. they make the profile and full kit delivered specifically for tuin huts .
I would like more comprehensive installation notes I am a retired technician engineer very practical but would like more dimensions printed on guide.
We would pay for pretreated kit from Tuin but did not seem to get this option either .
otherwise brilliant product great trusted company .Thanks Leslie J Curwood

I chose Tuin because of the quality of the wood. I was concerned about delivery and installation as my house is not easily accessible but it all worked out fine. Am very pleased with it and planning insulation etc. Would recommend Tuin and Philip Osorio for installation.

From order to delivery through to construction has been exceptionally smooth. Even though my house is at the bottom of a slope, the delivery driver was excellent and managed to drop the two pallets outside my workshop. Although never having constructed something like this, I found the illustrated guidance easy to follow and never once got near to using the helpline. We are now fitting out the inside using celotex and cladding. We have put in electrics, including some outside led lighting to increase lighting to the garden. Although being aware of the size, when built, it is a substantial size and will create a descent living space. It was very satisfying when inserting the walls that they fitted exactly at the end of the flooring. Showing that the claim that the product is exact with little tolerance. Just keep everything square and flat. Massively pleased with the product, service and delivery.

I received the Shepherds hut in the time frame advised by Tuin.
The delivery man was very helpful and set the kit exactly where I wanted it.
I unpacked the parts into my garage checking them off against the list provided. They were all there and in good order, nothing damaged. The parts are well made and good quality timber has been used.
As my carpenter will not be available until mid March I have started to paint the outside, weather permitting(Max 80% humidity and 8 degrees celsius)
So far very pleased with the product.
I intend to write a further review once the hut is complete.

We bought this Shepherds Hut to site in our field next to a small brook. The Hut arrived on a truck with its own forklift and delivered it to the site. The driver was very helpful. It was flat packed on a pallet and well wrapped. My son (16) and a local DIY man put it together and painted it over 5 stress free days in my son's school holidays. He now intends to kit it out as an off-grid tiny home. He loves it so much he wants to move out of our home! This has been a great project and we have already enjoyed having a drink in the late evening sun next to the brook. I'm thinking of moving out too...
