Your backyard office, summer home, guest house or a wild backwoods retreat. The Gute Collingwood Shepherd Hut ($TBA) is versatile enough to adapt to any circumstances. And it’s guaranteed to last for generations.
Coming from Maxwell-Canada, the shepherd hut is hand built form solid and reclaimed woods with minimal environmental impact. It features a fully insulated, waterproofed exterior shell, with a roof covered in western red cedar shakes, providing a look that’s refined and rugged at the same time. Measuring only 7.5′ wide and 15′ 6″ long, the space is outfitted with modular furniture, making it feel substantially bigger. You can choose from different woods (oak, ash, maple, walnut, cherry, or even exotic woods) and configurations, including a butler’s cupboard with two large shelves and drawers, a desk that can be folded away, a sofa that slides out to become a double bed, a booth & table unit that will collapse into a double bed, and other clean&practical designs.
There is also a beautiful brass vessel dry-sink, hand forged by a local brass smith. If you prefer, the builders can install an ethanol fireplace, propane heater, a solar power system, and battery bank. A fully furnished Gute Collingwood Shepherd Hut is usually built in one month, it includes a 50 year warranty on the wood, and it comes to you turn-key, ready to be rolled (on its cast iron wheels) wherever you imagine it to be. via
