The Shepherd Hut’s old-fashioned look was achieved through Güte’s careful attention to detail and handmade furnishings. For example, the design team installed cast iron wheels instead of regular tube tires, and has included antique touches like a brass Welsh miner’s lamp and hand-pumped solid brass sink. High-quality hardwoods were also used throughout the home, from the Dutch-style doors to the siding and floor. Made to last the test of time, the sturdy mobile home can even weather the harsh Canadian winters.
Custom built from the wheels up, the Shepherd Hut has a starting price of around $29,146, with options for add-ons such as a PV array and composting toilet. Inside the home, clients can pick from a variety of modular, space-saving furniture pieces, choose the materials, and specify the size and layout.
