Here at The English Shepherds Hut Company, we also create a range of bespoke timber framed buildings throughout East Anglia under the name Timberpad. Often built to larger sizes than our hut, but with the same strict high standards, and design flexibility, these compliment our huts well and we are equally proud of them! We'll be featuring tales of some of our quirkier Timberpad builds on our blog, so read on to find out more!
That's a trio of private deliveries done and dusted and we pulled out all the stops to make sure that our customers received their huts in time for the summer holidays. With our order book growing by the week, you may be wise to book your hut well in advance if you want it delivered in time for next summer! For a fleeting moment on Friday afternoon, our workshop was empty for the first time in weeks. Fast forward to today, when it is alive with the roar of bench saws and hammers again!
Indeed, it looks like the chickling that was The English Shepherds Hut Co. has grown into a voracious creature which can barely move in its nest for all of it's marvellous plumage. We've been subconsciously preparing to move into a bigger, better workshop for quite some time, but while there are shepherds huts to be built and customers' gardens to embellish with bespoke timber buildings, we must put our own needs second and postpone our move until after the summer.
Besides, we're on first name terms with Sandwich-Lady from B24 Business Lounge!
Imagining stepping out of your Hut and into the dappled shade of your very own babbling brook. That's now a reality for a lucky customer in Essex, who fell in love with one of our existing huts and asked for it to be re-fitted into a combined garden office and summer retreat.
If only everyone could just pop out and have a swim, dry off in the sun, then get back in the hut to resume work!
If you like to work from home or you've got a lovely bit of land you want to make the most of, get in touch with us and ask us to design you a shepherds hut!
It's here! After a whole year of waiting, the Royal Norfolk Show is back in all it's glory. Held at The Norfolk Showground, this huge 2 day event attracts over one hundred thousand visitors every year and hosts a range of events, stands and attractions.
This year we are going to be exhibiting with our newest Wild Rover Shepherds Hut. With it's towable Ifor Williams Trailer, delivery was much quicker than last year!
Guests at the event will be welcome to look inside, relax and feel the quality of our huts. We'll also be breaking out the Pimms and barbeque once the sun goes down, so free free to join us then as well!
Like last year, we've supplied the events coordinator Sonia Bell and her team with a traditional, etal-wheeled Shepherds Hut as an events office- So we can show you both types!
After an intense week at the workshop with the full team, we're all chuffed for the completion of our latest Wild Rover! Finished in time for the Royal Norfolk Show, this is our unique, mobile Shepherds Hut which was built on a suspended, towable Ifor Williams chassis, but with our classic Shepherds Hut on top.
But what does the inside look like? If you want to see our first reveal to the public then come along to the show where we'll be exhibiting the Wild Rover. We'll even be pouring Pimms from 2 0'clock in the afternoon and whipping out the acoustic guitar after sunset so come along and join us!
On Friday we delivered our latest Retreat hut to the exquisite 15th Century country house Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk. This was most cathartic, as Chief Combobulator Wong still has harrowing memories of getting stuck inside Oxburgh Hall's "Priest-hole" as a fat child.
The stately manor is an iconic part of Norfolk, drawing in thousands of visitors a month. Our hut sits outside the walls, resplendent in the National Trust's own colours, as a recruitment hut and features a custom built oak desk with the National Trust logo inlaid, overhead shelving, lights and a sofa with a built in kick heater.
As the property is of course a listed building, the Shepherds Hut made an ideal solution for a low-impact, planning-friendly and ultimately movable office.
We'll be demonstrating our Shepherds Huts at the Royal Norfolk Show this year with the Wild Rover and one of our more traditional styles on show, so look out for us and get your tickets here! http://royalnorfolkshow.co.uk/the-show/buy-tickets
Chief Combobulator Wong. While the rest of the team gallivant and build Shepherds Huts, I sit here and combobulate.
