Artisan Self Build Huts

Our Self Build Hut has been especially developed for those with the time to indulge their artisan leanings and hand-build their own hut. This option is suitable for you if you’ve done projects before or are just starting out and finding out how handy you are. We can give you as much or as little support as you need and you’ll feel so great when you sit in your finished hut for the first time.

Metal Self Build

Choose a metal chassis, and then decide if you would like our pre-built frame panels, joinery and extra components.  Our full kits come with instructions and pre-supplied with all the fixings you could need and some natty little jigs and tools to help you out, as well as our helpful instruction video.  If you wish to clad your hut in tin, we put you directly in touch with our supplier, or we can supply you with oak cladding if you require.

Available in 12, 14, 16 and 18 foot lengths – and 7 foot 6 inches wide.

Price starts at £3,150 inc. VAT

Oak Self Build

The oak chassis is a real trademark of a Blackdown Hut, and as carpenters we have to confess to loving them!  Again, available in a choice of lengths with the option to add our pre-built frame and joinery onto your shopping list, this does represent a very cost effective way of combining Blackdown heritage and quality with your own hard work and ideas to create something really special.  Again, instructions and extras to make your life easier are supplied as standard – we can’t guarantee that you won’t swear at all – but it will definitely be worth it in the end!

Available in 12, 14, 16 and 18 foot lengths – and 7 foot 6 inches wide.

Prices start at £4,600 inc. VAT

Why buy Blackdown Self Build?

At Blackdown® Shepherd Huts we believe in working with you to achieve your dream hut, rather than limiting your options. To that end, we have devised a hut-build which allows you to construct your own artisan hut, with our self-build system.  Having built quite a few huts, we’ve used our knowledge to pre-prepare the elements which need specialised equipment or components, but apart from that it’s all down to you and your skills (which can be anything from basic carpentry to fully-fledged builder).  A self-build option allows you not only to save money, but also enables you to add your own personal touch every step of the way.

Our Customer’s Voice:

“We did look at other companies some of which do offer cheaper huts but kept coming back to Blackdown, the traditional oak chassis and cast iron wheels supported a level of quality not matched by most other manufacturers. This combined with the option to build the hut myself made the choice straightforward” – Richard Miles
