A heavy duty STF shepherds hut chassis; the main frame is fabricated using 100mm x 50mmx3mm rectangular box section mild steel. With brackets welded in place, spaced at every 800mm (every other joist), ready to bolt your timber floor joists to.
Large turntable base with drawbar; to allow for ease of manoeuvring into position.
Four wheels; constructed from rolled 80mm x 8mm flat bar and 25mm x 25mm solid square bar spokes.
Hot dip galvanised is the process which ensures extreme durability and a long life, especially in coastal areas where the metal is exposed to salty sea air.
Curved roof sheets
These can be supplied with the chassis for an additional cost. The roof sheets are slate grey and supplied with 100 roofing nails.
We have some chassis in stock, but we advise customers prior to buying to give us a call to confirm lead times. Standard lead times are 4 - 6 weeks to allow for galvanising.
It is possible to collect the STF chassis from the workshop, there is a telehandler which can load it onto a trailer or suitable flatbed vehicle.
This can be arranged at an extra cost.
Bespoke Chassis Sizes
It is possible to fabricate STF chassis to a non standard size, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
We have two completed STF shepherds huts on site, one is a successful holiday let www.thefarmhut.co.uk and the second we use as our office, which you would be welcome to look at either to get ideas for your own hut.

STF Galvanised/Bare Metal Shepherds Hut Chassis
This type of heavy duty chassis is essential when building a modern shepherds hut, the extra weight from the interior cladding, double glazed windows, electrics, bathroom and/or kitchen etc. will put added stress on the chassis. Without the extra strength, the hut is liable to sag which will lead to future problems.
