Who is behind Honey's Hut's
Meet Ben Honey, the brains behind the build!
Ben has done various jobs since leaving school at 16. From building to tree surgery, shop fitting and painting, construction has always played a big part in his life and he is not shy of a challenge.
Construction also spills into Ben's spare time. He is always creating something and loves to tinker with all machinery; cars, boats, bikes and quads. Looking to give 'the old' a new lease of life, he is always finding a way to make something out of practically nothing.
Meet Kaylee, sales and business
Kaylee graduated from University with a degree in Interior Design Decoration.
She has spent her time, since the age of 16, working her way up the ranks in retail before having a career change to become a carer.
Kaylee has many hobbies and is an extremely talented cook and baker; regularly told to apply for the Great British Bake Off!
Kaylee and Ben work closely together to find the right interior for each hut, from the fittings to paint and materials. Kaylee deals with all enquiries and sales in the business so it is most likely her at the end of an email or phone call.
Meet Kaitlyn, our gorgeous daughter
Kaitlyn is the daughter of Ben and Kaylee and loves nothing more than to help daddy in her spare time. She likes to have her own say in how daddy does things in the workshop and is the boss of the business at only 3 years old!
Why A Hut?
Our huts are sustainable and practical. Each one is individual as well as a worthwhile investment for the future; it could even supply an extra income!
They are not only beautiful, and in most cases nostalgic, but they can be used all year long.
Huts all have their own character which just make people fall in love with them. They are a calming place to be where you can remove yourself from everyday living.
They can be moved from one place to another (the small ones with ease, the larger with a 4x4 or similar vehicle) with a big bonus being that other than for one or two uses the current building legislation means that planning is not required.

Also good for the feathered and furred family, our Huts could house dogs, guinea-pigs, rabbits or chickens. They could even be used for the equestrians out there as a brilliant tack room!
A Spot Of History
The Shepherd's Hut, or Shepherd's Wagon as it was also known, has been used since the 15th Century into the early 20th Century. A crucial part of Britain's agricultural history, they have been used throughout the United Kingdom by farmers as a mobile shelter to tend their sheep and watch their flocks during lambing season, even bringing sick lambs in to care for.
A Shepherd's Huts had multiple uses; it was a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, sitting room and store room all rolled into one. There would often be a stove in one corner used for warmth and cooking.
Designs varied but all had the same purpose in mind; providing practical and durable accommodation. Many different materials were used to build these huts and they were most commonly found with corrugated iron roofing and cast iron wheels. Though they were occasionally built with corrugated sides, interlocking wooden sides became more popular with windows on each wall and hinged stable doors.
Honey's Huts look to combine authentic touches with all the modern conveniences of today to make for a comfortable and enjoyable space to suit whatever need.
Ben does all of the construction himself, creating a solid oak chassis and using a wide range of materials for the rest of the hut. Where he can, he sources reclaimed materials and supports small local businesses to get the ideal materials for the job.
