This month we started construction on a brand new hut for a client’s garden- named by the client as his “Bunkee”! We probably say it too often, but we offer a bespoke build- built exactly to the specifications of the customer. We relish the customers’ ideas and use their own influences and lifestyle to create them something unique.
That’s why we leapt at the opportunity to start this one. Our customer got in touch after seeing our Boutique Glamper at Top Farm and wanted something similar- and different! This was to be a guest room and a crafts and writing den. As it was to be positioned quite a long way from mains electricity, we needed to provide some way of powering a laptop, a phone charger and even a sewing machine.
Always one to rise to a challenge and embrace clean energy solutions, we have sourced a simple and surprisingly compact solar panel- flexible to fit discreetly with the curved roof, which will be more than sufficient to power these appliances. Not only this, but it can be upgraded and linked with several more for additional power. And if the hut is to be moved elsewhere with less sunlight, we have a simple 240V 16 amp socket which can be attached to the mains or a generator. The solar package also contains two long life batteries making it convenient and economical.
The insulation is made from snug and environmentally friendly sheep wool from Thermafleece Ecoroll which makes the Shepherds hut warm all year round- it even smelt a little bit sheepy! We are also fitting it with a classic wood burning stove and a beautiful natural larch finish giving the whole hut a rustic and welcoming feel.
Delivery has been postponed due to the wet weather- this one requires us to drive a hi-ab lifting truck through a field and lift it over a fence, so we’d rather play it safe… But it’s going to be worth the wait!
