How long does a build take?

How much does a bespoke shack cost?
As a guide price, a bespoke shack can range from £2500 – £3000+VAT per sqm subject to the final design. In addition to this, you will need to consider additional costs such as design fees and planning applications if required.
What is included in the bespoke process?
After an initial chat and a ballpark cost, it’s over to our design team to bring imagination to reality. A few sketches and some moodboards later you’ll have a unique shack designed just for you, ready for us to quote.
It’s very much a creative journey, one which we’ll take together!

Will my shack be heated?
