OJW Shepherd Huts

OJW Shepherd Huts is a new venture by Overberg Joinery Works. Sustainable building and joinery. True to tradition, quality uncompromised.

Shepherd's Huts have been used for hundreds of years, by shepherds, allowing the shepherd to be protected from the elements whilst tending his flock during lambing seasons.

These huts were often made from disused bits found on the farm, recycled cast iron wheels with timber chassis and corrugated iron tops and sides.

The hut was one big simple space with a stove for cooking and warmth and a bed for the night. Windows allowed the shepherd to keep an eye on his sheep, and a stable door, allowed him to hear them.

Today shepherd huts are very desirable as tiny houses, chill-out zones, glamping… if you are in need of a small, delightful, movable space ….. a shepherd hut is for you.

We manufacture our huts to a standard size of 4800mm long by 2250mm wide. The huts are manoeuvrable and do not require planning permission.

Our open plan hut has a dividing wall and a sliding door to one end. It comes fully insulated and electrically wired with sockets and lighting. The external walls are built using a combination of vertical corrugated steel and eco-friendly eucalyptus hardwood, which OJW has a reputation of using. Wooden hand painted windows and stable entrance door are a standard. The huts sit on traditional cast iron wheels, draw bar and timber chassis, just as they were made 200 years ago.

From the open plan hut a more bespoke unit can be obtained by simply adding items in from the order list, ultimately OJW can create your dream OJW Shepherd Hut.
