Welcome to The Little Hut Co.
The Little Hut Co. builds one of a kind, personal shepherds huts.
The Little Hut Company is based in Hemel Hempstead, Herts although I design and construct them on a private site just over the border in bedfordshire near Ivinghoe.
I started as a chainsaw carver eleven years ago whilst working for a large tree surgery company.
Eventually I started gaining clients and my carvings proved popular so I became a full time chainsaw carver. That was five years ago and now I get to travel all over the UK to work on commissions and abroad to the USA taking part in shows. I have placed in many competitions and in 2014 I placed first in the European Chainsaw Carving Championships which is held every two years defending my title. I also won in 2012.
During a recent show I looked at a basic wooden hut which gave me the idea to construct my own. This evolved over the past months into the shepherd huts you see today.
During the last eleven years I have gained many skills and carving is now not my only work I do. I have been trained in green oak framing, joinery, construction techniques and wood milling. All of these including the technical cutting I am asked to do to ensure we make our shepherds huts to the highest standard possible using the best materials available. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the materials makes a very strong, quality product.
I enjoy living and working in the natural environment and I believe in preserving as many trees as possible. Therefore, we only use local timber which has fallen or been felled for safety reasons or is proven to be sustainable. All the timber used is FSC certified. We also try to use local craftsmen and businesses locally to source some of our products.
The Little Hut Company would like to introduce its newest product, Shire Pods.
Our unique Shire pods provide a truly unique experience, giving a new and exciting experience for children and adults alike.
All of our pods are built using quality, locally sourced materials and this ensures they will remain comfortable and in great condition for many years to come.
Built in our workshop in Bedfordshire each pod is tailor made and no two will be alike. We use local craftsmen for certain aspects of each hut, and quality is built in as standard.
Perfect for a magical, unique glamping experience, our Shire pods will truly set your site apart from the rest. They could also be used as a enchanting retreat, a tranquil studio, a unconventional home office or a spare bedroom.
We can also theme your Shire pod with bespoke chainsaw sculptures to create a one of a kind, extraordinary space. The whole front of the house could be carved with woodland animals and trees.
