About the event

There are very few courses available that teach you how to build a Shepherds hut, if any. 

So for anyone who would be looking to get into this line of work, would probably have to work for another company to gain the experience. 

This is why we  offer short courses and workshops. If you were to buy a glamping pod or a Shepherds hut or any substantial timber building they come with a hefty price tag. So learning how to build your own is a great way to save money. 

This 5 day workshop will teach you how to build a basic Shepherds Hut.  Don't let the size fool you.. this basic course will teach you the fundamentals in Hut building and allow you, to go on and build a Shepherds Hut from this basic 3m hut and scale up to any size you wish. 

What you will learn: 

Basic health & safety including PPE 

Basic carpentry with hand tools and power tools.

Day 1 - Framing 

 Day 2 - front and rear wall, flooring, structural cladding,  membranes

 Day 3 - Internal walls, insulation

 Day 4 - External cladding 

 Day 5 - Doors, windows and finishings. 

Finished Size 3m x 2.2m (The hut is for build/ education purposes only and you do not get to keep it)

The course will finish with a basic Shepherds Hut complete without any internal fixtures/ fittings 

Partnership Opportunity

Once you have completed this course, and to a reasonable standard you will have the option of being entered onto our register of approved installers. We get asked to build shepherds huts & pods all over the country and as such it makes sense to have people that we trust and have trained to complete some of our pod builds. 

This is of course optional, and would allow you the opportunity to gain valuable experience and earn at the same time.

Number of attendees: up to 6 

0930 – 1630 each day

1230pm - 30 minute break for (bring your own) lunch 

Tea & Coffee provided 

Course Cost:  £1800

Course fee includes any required PPE for the course and course materials 

Places are limited - Book asap to avoid dissapointment.
