Q: Where can I put my Plurt?
Q: Do you sell a Plurt kit?
The Plurt can be assembled on any flat surface that is anchored to the ground. Be careful not to place directly under trees with overhanging branches.
Sorry no, the Plurt is only available in plan form. But don't let this stop you! You don't need any specialist tools or a massive place to build one as none of the panels are over 2.5 m long
Q: How long does it take to assemble?
The Plurt is a very light structure but so long as the surface it is screwed down to is heavy or fixed to the ground it can withstand strong winds, although for comfort's sake it is always best to place your Plurt in a sheltered place away from the worst of the weather. The close fitting roof panels and guttering system ensure the Plurt is always dry and cosy inside.
Q: Just how tough and weather proof is a Plurt?
Q: How much does the Plurt weigh?
The Plurt weighs about 250 kilos in total. Each wall panel weighs about 17 kilos and each roof panel about 10 kilos.
Q: I don't have any woodworking experience, can I still build a Plurt?
You do not need to have any special experience, you only need very basic woodworking skills, and a few power tools such as a jigsaw and a plane. The fully illustrated plans walk you through every step of the build.
Q: How many windows can I fit to the Plurt?
Q: Can I increase the headroom of the Plurt?
An opening window can be fitted in to each of the wall panels if required and as the panels are interchangeable they can be moved around if you fancy a change in layout.
Q: What are the Plurt's dimensions, area, headroom, volume etc
