Reforesting Scotland were invited by Lesley Riddoch to contribute to the Nordic House Exhibition for the 2015 Edinburgh Festival. RS has a “thousand huts” campaign, which seeks to revive hutting in Scotland and give Scots the opportunities that exist in Europe, especially the Nordic countries.
We responded by building a 1:10 model of a typical timber hut you might expect to see in this new wave of hutting and it connects to the exhibition through the Danish contribution, which depicts Vennylst, a hutting community in Copenhagen. The hut was installed in the garden behind the storytelling centre, which is the venue for the exhibition. Its august companion looking on is the polymath Patrick Geddes.
The hut has a post and beam structure with a sleeping loft. The walls demonstrate the options for horizontal or vertical cladding and how many forms of windows are possible to get the best views from, and daylight into, the building. The south elevation has double fully glazed doors opening on to a deck. The corrugated metal roof overhangs to protect the timber cladding from the elements.
Huts have been defined in the 2014 Scottish Planning Policy Document as follows:

A simple building constructed from low impact materials
(natural, reclaimed, or minimally processed);
Having an internal floor area no bigger than 30m2;
Off mains water, electricity and sewerage where appropriate;
Used for recreational purposes
(i.e. not a principal residential address);
Placed with minimal impact to local environment, both natural and human;
Constructed in such a way that it is finally removable with little or no trace at the end of its life.

The full sized Peters hut would be about 15m2 but could be extended to the full 30m2. Quercus could construct it for around £1000/m2 and would welcome enquiries.
