Yes all our huts are fully insulated with sheep wool.
For thousands of years sheep have been able to survive the elements using their wool coats to protect them from extreme cold and heat. Due to the crimped nature of wool fibres, they form millions of tiny air pockets that trap air, helping to provide a thermal barrier.
Thermal conductivity is the ability for heat to pass from one side of a material through to the other. It is measured in W/mK, where a lower value signifies a better insulator. Sheep wool's thermal conductivity has been measured at between 0.035 – 0.04 W/mK, whereas mineral wool has a typical thermal conductivity of 0.044 W/mK.
Yes, they are manoeuvrable as they have cast iron wheels on a turning plate, we can provide/sell an A frame draw bar with which they can be towed by a 4x4 vehicle.
Our huts start at 7ft (2.1m) wide by 12ft (3.6m) long, but can be up to 9ft (2.7m) wide by 20ft (6.1m) long.
From the beginning of your order we will regularly send you pictures and updates via e-mail, often you may want to make changes along the way, which is not a problem and with regular contact this makes this much easier all round.
You are also welcome to come and visit on site whenever you wish during the build.
Delivery costs vary from location to location, depending on your order and the site in which the hut is going. We are able to provide this service via a hi-ab lorry or you can make arrangements to have your hut collected.
No, the huts are so well insulated that you will only hear a muffled patter.
There are various options when it comes to drainage each site will be unique, so we are happy to visit and advise. The huts can be linked to the house drains, or cess pit. Or you could have the option of a compost toilet which can be placed in close proximity of your hut.
We can customise each hut to cater for disabled access, the doors have a minimum clearing opening width of 800mm, ramps should have a clear width of at least 1.5 metres, with a preferred gradient of 1;20.
Please talk to us about disability access and we will design a hut that will cater for you.
