Simple Shelters are running two hut building courses early in 2019. On January 31, is Hut Design Course on the Falkland Estate in Scotland, with two days looking at the principles and practise of designing a hut from coming up with ideas, through sketching and floorplanning, to the finished hut. The second on February 2 concentrates on scale modelling techniques. Here's what they say"
Using a variety of materials, you will build a scale model representing the essential structural elements, design features, and aesthetics of your hut. The process of making a model will highlight issues that may be encountered on the actual build, and allow for further modifications of the design. The model will enable conversations with other parties involved, such as family members, planners, builders etc thus minimising unforseen problems. By the end of the weekend you will have developed your hut through the process of model making and go home with a better understanding of what will be involved in the actual build.Click the links for more details and below is an example of a previous course.
