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 structure, as well as an batt r14 insulation in the floor and ceiling structure.
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. as well as a batt r14 insulation in the floor and ceiling structures. 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.

This completes the shepherd hut with charming and durable finishing details.
