Meet Dicky

Dicky Deans has spent the most of his working life delivering intricate, time-sensitive and bespoke solutions to the West End. He’s built sets for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hamlet, Harrods Christmas decorations and was one of the craftsmen responsible for creating the stunning stadium Olympic Rings in 2012.

In recent years Dicky has turned his passion for building things to create high-quality Shepherds Huts and Glamping Pods.

Getting Back to the Outdoors

Dicky is used to delivering work that is millimetre perfect, strong and portable but ultimately at the end of a show, each creation it used to be dismantled. Longing for something with a permanence that was lacking in his theatre work, Dicky starting making Shepherd’s Huts, aided by skilled craftsmen around him in Sussex.

The rise of the Shepherds Hut popularity over recent years can be attributed to a desire to get back to nature. Shepherds huts are perfect for holidaymakers, campers or even those that want to work outside in a home office. A shepherds hut offers a cosy warm environment to work from or stay in and enjoy being surrounded by nature. Dicky is passionate about making truly unique shepherds huts for his customers this is aided by his love of the outdoors and strong belief in getting back to the basics and being able to live off-grid.
