The Cranborne and Tollard are roofed with traditional corrugated steel. This is insulated and sound-proofed to an exceptionally high standard to provide warmth and comfort and protection from the drumming noise of rain. Our sound proofing is so successful that it ensures a good nights sleep whatever the weather.
The Tunsgate roof is constructed from cedar shingles and Siberian Larch T&G Cladding from sustainable sources giving you a more more natural aesthetically pleasing hut which will fit in to the most sensitive environment. As with the above we also use the same sound proofing and insulation ensuring the best possible heat retention and quite nights sleep.
Dorset Shepherd huts are unique in offering an eco-friendly living grass roof as an alternative option. This could be invaluable in helping your hut to blend into its surroundings if required, and offers an environmentally friendly alternative if desired.
We clad our huts in pressure treated timber that is ideal in providing a beautiful and long lasting finish, and can be painted in any colour of your choice. We can clad your hut in corrugated galvanised cladding if you prefer.
