Floor Plans

Every Gute shepherd hut is 7.5' wide. We recommend a 12' or 14' floor plan, though we can make this shepherd hut as long as you'd like. Outfitted with modular furniture, you'll still have room to breathe.


Mobile floor plans

Every Gute shepherd hut is 7.5 feet wide. We will make yours as short or as long as you would like. Two floor plans we recommend are a 7.5 x 12 foot floor plan and a 7.5 x 16 foot floor plan. Outfitted with modular furniture, both of these floor plans give you room to breathe.


Paint & Stain

These colors are here to help you find a sense of what you will like best. If you have a something specific in mind and you can't find it here, don't worry. We can apply any of the colors you envision in both paint and stain.

Insulation




Essential Insulation Package

For our essential insulation package we insulate the entire structure of the hut for use from spring to fall. It's the right package if you just need to keep the heat out during those hot summer days and in during the cooler spring, summer, and fall nights. In our basic insulation package we use a styrofoam R5 insulation in the wall and R7 in the ceiling structure, as well as R12 batt insulation in the floor structure.




Premium Insulation Package

For our premium insulation package we insulate the entire structure of the hut for part-time winter use as well as improved seasonal use. In our premium insulation package we use a foil lined stiff board R9 insulation in the wall structure. We use stiff board R15 insulation in the ceiling structure, as well as R14 batt insulation in the floor structure. In addition to this we wrap the exterior in an air and vapour barrier and the entire interior in a complete moisture barrier. We don't recommend full-time winter use without the addition of an air circulation system to expel excess moisture created by the body.

Door Options



Solid cedar boards are joined using time-honoured methods to make the door, frame, and sill. Like our windows, we hand-pick, mill, shape, and fasten every solid cedar board. This gives the shepherd hut an entrance that is both extremely rare and comfortable at the same time. We finish the door and frame with the same three coat exterior finish that goes on our windows.

Entrance Steps & Roof Fascia



brown pressure treated lumber

Natural Brown Pressure Treated Lumber

For our essential series shepherd hut we build our entrance steps, handrail, and roof fascia from natural brown pressure treated lumber. This lumber weathers very well without any finishing or maintenance. It is available in a natural brown cedar-like color which compliments the shepherd hut well without the premium price of solid cedar. This completes the shepherd hut with charming and durable finishing details.

Finished Cedar Lumber

For our premium series shepherd hut we build our entrance steps, handrail, and roof fascia from solid cedar lumber. Cedar is the best absolute best choice for exterior applications due to its exceptional inherent resistance to decay and warping, and we take that even further by finishing the steps and fascia in your same choice of window matching exterior stain and 2 coats of exterior grade clear coat finish. We build our steps in a wedge and tenon style to give the steps a traditional craftsman handmade detail. This gives the entire hut a exceptionally detailed and complete aesthetic created from the best and materials available, and finished with outstanding craftsman style details.

Güte Plaque



For our final touch we mount a solid brass plaque on each Gute shepherd hut. We worked with a local brass smith to create and cast this symbol of the care and enthusiasm we put into each shepherd hut.
