About Me

We are a small family run business located on the Powis Shropshire border. We have been building 'stuff' for over 20 years. Builds range from narrow boats to our family home. We can build great garden structures, including Shepherds huts, Showmans wagons and Caravans, that make great alternatives to the traditional shed. They can be an alternative office, a spare bedroom, an adult wendy house, a potting shed, a bird hide, an attractive addition to a campsite for the new glamping craze, an alternative workshop a home cinema, or even a roadside tea wagon. Will consider building anything really, so ask away! Email davestilthouse@googlemail.com Phone: 01588 620132

Windsor Hill Wood

With our usual transport of a breakdown truck out of action having broken down and its mechanic off sick, we had to resort to towing a trailer. We remembered while doing so why we had started to use the breakdown truck in the first place. 

It's all fun and games when trying to navigate your way through the pot holed streets of Bristol at the best of times. Add to the mix a trailer with a hut on its back and your nerves will be shot for sure. 

Then there was the small issue of a car abandoned across one half of a tight turning but with a quick phone call to Toby we headed for a roundabout and came at said turn from the easier way.

With all that aside, it was a pretty easy drop once we were at location. Once on site we weren't convinced that the breakdown truck would have coped with the ground. As it was, the land rover pulled the trailer up the muddy track and over grass with relative ease once we had remembered to put the diff lock on. 

So with a large team effort provided by Toby the hut was then manoeuvred into the desired location ready for them to add the finishing touches. 

A delivered 'unpainted' hut.

The hut itself, pictured above, was delivered unpainted. The five windows, two on each side and one in the end, were all opening and double glazed. 

A note from Toby of Windsor Hill Wood:
Just wanted to say thanks for doing everything you said you would. The hut looks magnificent and feels just right for this place. It'll keep someone very warm and cosy through the winter. We're all very grateful. All the best, Toby
Windsor Hill Wood is a woodland shelter set up by Tobias Jones and Francesca Lenzi. Inspired by the Pilsdon Community in Dorset, it aims to create a peaceful environment where people going through tough or uncertain times can come and reflect on life.
