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 accomodation 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.   

Supplied untreated, for finishing by yourself in a traditional opaque or solid colour.

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.


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

Excellent quality timber, easy to put together.
Delivery was within 2 weeks of ordering.
I like the fact that its a basic shell that can be modified to suite your own needs. I've heavily modified mine. Highly recommended.

We ordered the Shepherds Hut on line. Pre-delivery service was excellent. We were kept informed all the way along as to delivery. Driver arrived @ 6.00pm on day of delivery and used a fork lift truck to bring the kit on to our drive. He was very willing to move some other builders' materials prior to setting down the hut in its kit form. Excellent service. Would recommend.

The whole experience from delivery to completion of the build was an absolute pleasure. Access was my first worry, the delivery driver took everything in his stride without a hitch and placed the load exactly where I needed it, all done with a smile. Identification of all the components was quite easy with the aid of a tape measure. The construction phase took about a week in total, single handed and no time off work. It all went smoothly, most impressive point being the accuracy of the supplied timber. The only mistake I made was ordering some corrugated roofing material that wasn't pre-curved, my thinking being it would be flexible enough to bend to shape. Wrong! I used the supplied felt as a base layer then added another layer of quality green felt on top. I have now started the wiring, insulation and internal cladding. I will provide an update on completion. Thankyou Tuin for a good quality and good value product.

Overall, the hut was good; packaged well and with no parts missing. Some of the tongue and grooved timber was slightly damaged but with careful construction this damage was hidden. Construction was relatively easy but the instruction booklet contained many errors including measurement errors. The Torx bits sent with the screws were not up to the job and the screws provided were not of very good quality. However, with a little imagination and a few extra tools and screws it all worked out well and the whole construction was completed by two people in 4 days.

Thank you Tuin! Excellent service and an excellent product (flat packed Shepherd's Hut). It is a dream den for our children, a wonderful extension and real focal point of our garden. It took 2 carpenters 4 days to assemble it it would've been quicker but we opted to have it insulated and also needed to upgrade roof felt. We had dithered for a long time about getting one but are so happy with the choice. Financially it is much more economical than an extension but gives the extra space with real flexibility. Many thanks.
