The Simple Beauty Of The Traditional Shepherd's Hut...
Their heavy duty cast iron wheels enabled them to be pulled from field to field and the huts themselves were often constructed with corrugated iron over wooden frames.
Lambswool was often used as insulation.
A simple shelter, usually with a hinged stable door, the small space was a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, sitting room and storeroom all rolled into one.
Of course, they all had a woodstove in one corner for warmth and for cooking.
A tiny home on wheels.
Nowdays every man and his dog wants one...
