Frequently asked questions
How much is delivery?
Delivery is charged in addtion to the price of your hut and varies depending on your location. We offer two types of delivery, curb side delivery, where by we bring the hut to you and drop it off for you to get into position and a delivery where by we install your hut and move it into position for you, charged at an additional £300.
What colours can I choose from?
Tin Exterior - We have a range of standard colours for tin exterior cladded huts. Please see the following link to the choice of paints available. https://www.hammerite.co.uk
Do I need planning permission?
No, is the simple answer. If you live in an area of outstanding natural beauty you may wish to send a polite email to the planning office informing them of what your plans are but in general even this is not necessary. If you are receiving rental income from the hut you may need to apply for consent but this will be dependent on your local authority.
Can I change the design, use specific reclaimed materials, alter window configuration and not have a log burner?
Yes, to all those questions, all of our huts are bespoke and can be designed to meet your needs. You will be involved at every stage of the design and building process. After your deposit is paid our design team will put together a 3D CAD drawing of your hut inside and out, alterations can be made at this point. Additional items, specific materials, bespoke colours and anything that is NOT included as standard may incur an extra charge, this will be noted on your quote
Can I collect the hut myself instead of having it delivered?
Yes this is certainly possible, the responsibility is on you to arrange every aspect of this, we can give you guidance but nothing more, we will simply open up the gates to give you access.
Are any of the standard huts towable?
They are moveable, our huts are usually built on a reclaimed caravan or trailer chassis so they can be moved around a garden or field. Our standard huts are NOT road legal, we can supply huts that are road legal but they are charged at a different rate.
What sort of electrical supply do I need and can you install one?
Our huts work very much like a caravan, they have an IP rated external plug that you will need to plug into a power source. This could be inside your house or an external supply. We can advise you on the necessary requirements but we do not carry out any electrical works at your property.
Do you have any huts that are less expensive than your ‘Holly Tree Hut’?
Unfortunately we do not, our Holly Tree Hut is our most basic hut and we do not build any that are smaller or with a lower specification. If your budget is less than the cost of a Holly Tree Hut, unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate you.
Can you work to a specific budget?
If your budget falls between the cost of our standard huts we can work out the best solution for you maximise your spend, you may need to include delivery so take this into account. We can recommend specific materials or features that will help you reduce costs or improve the overall look of the hut.
Do you offer any finance options?
Do you have any special offers?
We do offer a 5% discount if 2 or more huts are purchased at the same time.
Do you have a payment structure?
Yes, its designed in such a way that it makes sure you are happy with the progress of the hut at each stage of construction.
