These shepherd’s huts have been built with the environment at the heart of their design - over 80% of the materials used for the build being recycled upcycled or reclaimed, all being sourced locally. The shower runs off collected rainfall, the toilet is composting (you will see no difference!) and electricity is by solar power or local green energy (seldom needed).
