This is one very original vacation property! Unique Home Stays rents these two shepherd’s huts and cottage (all connected by tunnels!) out to vacationers. They call it the Nomad.

One hut features the bedroom, and the other houses the bathroom. Then the tunnel passage connects the huts to the hillside cottage where you can warm by the wood stove and cook in an updated 17th century kitchen. Even if you can’t book a stay, it’s worth being inspired by the beautiful craftsmanship of the place!

It’s stories like Robert’s that remind us you can do a lot without a lot of cash! He built this DIY Shepherd’s Hut for just $3,500, and then wrote a book about how he did it so you can do the same thing.

Right now he uses it as a guest cabin and camper, and has friends who live in their own hut all summer long. Robert’s book, “How I Built a Shepherder’s Wagon” ($23, Physical Copy) is completely illustrated with over 100 color photos and sources of the supplies he used to build the home. He’s sending us a copy to review and if you’d like one, you can check it out here.

Enjoy the pictures of his tiny wagon!

If you’re just one person looking for a tiny house with a downstairs bedroom, I think shepherd’s huts offer the perfect size and layout. Here’s the “Duck” Shepherd’s Hut vacation home in Somerset, England to give you some inspiration.

It’s decked out like a English cottage, with quaint cream paneling, French doors, and hardwood flooring. The dining area transforms into the bedroom, making double use of the same square-footage, which you just have to do in something this short!

I’m excited to introduce you to the Pixie Palace Hut Company that’s based in Northern Michigan. It’s a family owned business specializing in building English style Shepherd’s Hut Tiny Houses.

These Shepherd’s Hut tiny homes are unique because they’re designed and built on trailers with cast iron wheels. Originally beginning in the 1600s these structures were used as shelter for Shepherds while they tended their flocks during lambing season and they would tow them with by horse.

Inside you would find a tiny living space with a cooking area, sleeping quarters, sitting/living area, heat, and storage for all of your supplies. Today structures like these are being used as backyard accessory structures, tiny guest homes, bed and breakfasts, offices, writing cabins, and more.

The owner/builder calls it a Demountable Shepherds Hut Motorhome.

And he’s selling it because he’s moving out of the country.

Right now it’s located near Guildford, United Kingdom and is ready for a new owner.
