Dear William and George,
When we moved into our new home, a 4 bedroom barn conversion in South Devon, I was expecting to have to use the guest bedroom as my home office (very inconvenient when you live in a holiday location with a lot of friends who want to visit). We considered our options which were to either extend into the loft (too expensive) or put a suitable pod/wooden shed in the garden (when I say suitable I mean it would need to blend into the surroundings). During my internet searches for ‘Garden Offices’ I found a few references to Shepherds Huts – something I had not even considered. The more I looked into the idea of a Shepherds Hut the more the idea appealed, especially when I found the Blackdown Shepherds Hut web site with your options to customise the build to exactly meet my requirements.
After visiting you and seeing an example for myself I was hooked and following a few very helpful conversations with yourselves we agreed on the design and delivery date. You were kind enough to send me some photos during the build phase and welcomed me to come and see for myself – great for giving me confidence of the high quality of materials and workmanship!
The actual delivery was painless and following connecting the Hut to the mains the following day I was able to move straight in, meaning we were able to free the spare room for its intended purpose just in time for our first visitors the following weekend – perfect timing!
Well I have now well and truly settled into my new Shepherds Hut and can confidently say it was the right decision (probably half the price of extending into the loft and delivered in half the time). We have the Shepherds Hut located to the side of our house where it already looks as if it was always meant to be there and has become a well known and admired landmark in the local village!
Thank you so much for building and delivering such a high quality product – if ever you have a prospective customer that lives in Devon, feel free to refer them to me!
