Why choose Plankbridge to make a hut for you? We have unrivalled knowledge and experience of how to build properly proportioned huts that will stand the test of time. The huts have one foot in the past and one very much in the present: the best of the old and the new.

 

Between us the team at Plankbridge have an MSc. in Forest Products (Design and Manufacture) gained at John Makepeace's pioneering college in West Dorset, diverse college training and approaching 100 years of combined carpentry, fine furniture, timber building and metalwork experience. We have taken two sixteen year old apprentices through to fully fledged hutmakers. We distill all this experience to make superb quality huts with the best possible finish.

 

We have a saying in the workshop - 'You cant flatpack a Plankbridge hut'. This is true, so we dont offer kits or parts for self build.

 

Gustav Stickley, an Arts and Crafts maker in the early 1900s, aimed to produce work that ‘would be first of all practical and comfortable, that would last a man’s lifetime, without being much the worst for wear; the kind of things one could take pride in handing down to one’s grandchildren.’ We endeavour to carry over this approach into our work.
