I feel it’s only right to give Reuben his own case study, after all its a pretty amazing feat to build your very own shepherd hut at 7 years old (with help of course). He has always been keen to help me in the workshop from a very early age and once we started making shepherd huts he has always wanted to make one for himself. So, when the space allowed he designed it and promptly got to work to make his perfect little hut. Reuben and his sisters are always making dens in the garden with little fire pits so first things first he wanted a small stove, double doors on the front and a little porch for his wellies! After all, he didn’t want it to get too dirty inside!
Over a period of a couple of months, he had pretty much designed and built his very first hut, put in almost every fixing, paint and even helped deliver it. This one is clad in painted larch boards and painted a very cool blue and looks pretty awesome!
Well done fella x
