Outline

Firstly, one of the characteristics is that it is ‘small and roomy'. The hut is not as complicated as a house or a holiday home, yet not quite like a quick trip. At approximately 9m2, it is compact in size but thanks to the slanted roof, it is spacious enough for three to four people to relax inside. The wood used is 100% domestically produced and the exterior walls comprise of burnt cedar, which were treated with a technique that has long been used in the shipbuilding industry. The oil stain finish further increases its resistance to corrosion and durability.
