Perseus the Stargazing Off-grid Tiny House

Poppy and Paul have a beautiful farm down near Honiton, Devon, and already had 2 off-grid cabins. They approached Hut Builder looking for a tiny house that would fit in to the stunning surroundings.

We’re really pleased with the end result – with it’s mix of larch and steel cladding, off-grid solar power, contemporary interior featuring plywood shadow gap walls, Salamander Hobbit wood burning stove this is an off-grid cabin that stands out from the crowd.

You can book now to stay in the tiny house, contact Poppy and Paul at or via AirBnB here

Harri the Horsebox

Back in 2019 I converted a horse lorry for Martyn and Leanna at the Bird’s Farm in Aberdare, it’s gone down really well with their guests and it’s a great spot for people visiting the Brecon Beacons, Waterfall country, Bike Park Wales or ZipWorld. Martyn and Leanna had been looking to expand the glamping business in 2020 and sent me a photo of another horse lorry… it was time to get planning! We wanted this one to have a more contemporary feel than Hetty and planned the layout and windows to suit the site and space.

Harri the Horsebox is now on site at the Bird’s Farm, booking via AirBnB here.

Watch this space for the next addition… they’ve send me a photo of a double decker bus!

The Cider Shack update

It seems like an age since the TV crew from ‘My Unique B+B’ were over filming for the Ty Gwyn Cider Shack Tiny House but if you missed it you can catch up on BBC iPlayer here. Since then we’ve built the wash hut to accompany the tiny house. This contains the compost loo, shower and kitchen. The Cider Shack is now welcoming guests and you’d better book fast! Contact for more info.

Rookery Farm Cabin

A day after arriving on site, the cabin is already beginning to look at home!

It’s been a hectic few months so apologies for not updating this sooner. We’ve been working on a project that is a bit larger than normal – a 26′ x 10′ cabin clad in charred larch (shou-sugi-ban) – as well as looking stunning this gives the timber fantastic preservative qualities. This cabin has been designed around the client’s specification which has been a fantastic journey – the interior really evolved into the finished article. I dread to think how many WhatsApp messages were exchanged as we built this without actually ever meeting in person!!

The finished cabin is unique, as our delivery driver commented ‘am I taking it to Oregon?’, yet with the art-deco inspired interior it could be at home on Long Island. Fortunately for us we won’t need a long-haul flight to go and stay in it – just a short hop over the Severn bridge to the Somerset Levels.

The Cider Shack Tiny House

Reclaimed corrugated steel and larch cladding, salvaged windows
and the window in the front door is from an old horse box (thanks Hetty!)

I’ve had the idea for this tiny house floating around in my head for a couple of years, a super-tiny, reclaimed, upcycled quirky tiny house. With the Covid-19 lockdown came the chance and a rare bit of free time to start building. Coincidentally a TV production company were looking for projects to get involved with, and our neighbours at Ty Gwyn Cider were looking to get a glamping business up and running. The stars were in alignment and the Cider Shack is the result of this.

Interior features include a reclaimed Ash worktop, Oak and a steel heatshield from the Cider farm, steel storage totes from an old engineering workshop, a Salamander Hobbit multifuel stove. Full sized double bed on a mezzanine floor. It’s amazing what can be squeezed into such a small hut get in touch with Laura and Alex down at Ty Gwyn Cider to book now!
