Artisan Shepherd’s Huts is run by expert joiner Paulus Smith from his West Sussex medieval threshing barn base. Although all huts are bespoke (up to around 12ft by 8ft), there are two main designs, a traditional one with steps and stable door (with bed inside), or a more shedlike model with double doors and optional decking. Wheels are cast to orginal patterns from molten iron and the pine used for the construction comes from managed sustained plantations and is pressure treated. The walls and roof are fully insulated and each hut is fitted with a solid oak floor. Wood burning stove, electrics and plumbing are extra.Artisan also run one day art and craft courses from their workshop.
