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 and we can’t wait to give it a try once the glamping business is up and running.
Work on the shepherd’s hut at the Waen has finished. Owners Rachael and Mike have now added the finishing touches and it’s one cosy looking cabana. 2 friendly alpaca (Alun and Owen) live in the paddock next to the hut hence the name. Have a look or book by visiting their website:
This 6m x 2.4m shepherds hut manages to squeeze in a full-size double bed with storage, TV, folding oak table, kitchen with sink, twin gas hob, under counter fridge, microwave, LPG boiler, water filtration system, Salamander Hobbit 4kW woodburner on a slate hearth, wardrobe, shower, WC, heated towel rail and washbasin – everything you could possibly need for a luxurious glamping getaway!
Hut Builder were approached by a customer to create a simple, bespoke off-grid tiny home that would fit in perfectly with existing cabins nestled in a beautiful little spot in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
This tiny home needed to be towable over rough ground to reach secluded spots for guests to enjoy in the summer months. As a result the design incorporated more ground clearance than usual.
Working to a tight budget and planning requirements, this tiny home represents a ‘bare-bones’ build using reclaimed windows and door with various materials including sheep’s wool insulation provided by the customer. It will soon be available for rent and we can thoroughly recommend it for an off-grid escape.
