Living Roofs

On all of our builds we can add a sedum roof which We think that they look fantastic but also make the pod more insulated and is also great for wildlife. Sedum roofs need very little maintenance and unlike grass roofs, they do not need cutting.

Sedum is a large genus of flowering plants which are commonly known as stonecrops. The genus has been described as containing up to 470 species. They are leaf succulents and are found primarily in the Northern Hemisphere, but extending into the Southern Hemisphere in Africa and South America.  The plants vary from annual and creeping herbs to shrubs. The plants have water-storing leaves. The flowers usually have five petals.

Use Your Own Timber

Quite often when we are asked to build our pods there are trees that have to be felled to make room for the actual build itself, for access or for services such as soakaways.

we can use this timber and incorporate this into the build. We can use a mobile sawmill to process the timber into products we can use inside and outside.

We think this makes your pods that extra bit special and cuts down on transport and production costs as well as being really eco-friendly.

Eco insulation

Here at The Little Hut company we use only the best materials and try to use materials that are eco friendly. We always try to reduce our carbon footprint and recycle our waste where possible.

We try to use eco friendly insulation if we are building using a tradional frame. We mainly use two type of insulation

The first being sheeps wool. We use Thermafleece Which is from British sheeps wool.

Research shows that using 75% wool in combination with recycled fibres outperforms alternative products with a higher percentage of wool.  Their wool rich blend ensures you get the full benefit of sheep’s wool with enhanced performance, durability and sustainability. It is also long-lasting, safe to handle and contributes to a healthier indoor environment by regulating moisture and absorbing harmful airborne substances in the home.

The 2nd natural insulation is SupaSoft from Thermafleece. This has been manufactured out of nearly all recycled plastic bottles and 100% from recycled polyester. The environmentally friendly 100% recycled polyester has no harmful chemicals, binders or adhesives. The non-woven open material allows water vapour to pass through to the insulation, allowing a long-life where it’s installed.
