Creature Comforts: Crafting the Perfect Animal Shelter with Midlands Sheds and Summerhouses

March 8, 2024

Animal Shelter

At Midlands Sheds and Summerhouses, we pride ourselves on our dedication to crafting bespoke timber structures that cater to a myriad of needs, one of which is the provision of customised animal shelters. Our passion for personalisation and quality craftsmanship allows us to create spaces that are not just shelters but homes for your beloved animals, offering comfort, protection, and a harmonious blend with your outdoor space.

The Significance of Customised Animal Shelters

An animal shed plays a pivotal role in the well-being of your pets or livestock, providing them with a safe haven from the elements and a comfortable space to rest. Recognising the diverse needs of different animals, we believe that a one-size-fits-all approach does not suffice. This is where our customisation service comes into play, enabling you to design a shelter that meets the specific requirements of your animals, whether they be furry friends or feathered companions.

Tailoring to Various Needs

Our range of animal shelters can be tailored to suit a variety of animals, from the smallest rabbits to the largest horses. By offering a bespoke service, we ensure that each shelter is perfectly adapted to its intended inhabitants.

For Small Animals

Small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens require shelters that offer protection from predators and harsh weather conditions. Customisation options for these smaller shelters include insulated walls for warmth during the winter months, ventilation systems to ensure a flow of fresh air during the summer, and secure locking mechanisms to keep predators at bay. Furthermore, we can incorporate runs or attached outdoor spaces, providing a safe environment for your pets to enjoy the outdoors.

For Larger Animals

Larger animals, such as horses and goats, necessitate more spacious accommodations. Our bespoke horse stables and goat sheds can be customised with a variety of stall sizes, tack rooms, and feeding areas. Ventilation, insulation, and durability are key factors we consider when designing these larger shelters, ensuring they offer maximum comfort and protection. The addition of windows, skylights, and strategically placed doors can enhance the natural light and airflow within these shelters, creating a healthier environment for your animals.

The Benefits of Customisation

The customisation of an animal shed brings with it several benefits, paramount among them being the well-being of your animals. Tailored spaces can help reduce stress in animals, provide adequate room for exercise, and ensure a comfortable resting area. Additionally, customised shelters can be designed to blend seamlessly with your garden or outdoor space, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your property.

Health and Happiness

A shelter that is designed with the specific needs of an animal in mind can significantly impact their health and happiness. Adequate ventilation reduces the risk of respiratory issues, while insulation keeps the shelter warm in winter and cool in summer. By including features such as perches for chickens or scratching posts for cats, we can cater to the natural behaviours of your pets, promoting a more content and active lifestyle.

Aesthetic and Practical Integration

We understand that an animal shelter is not merely a functional space but also an extension of your garden. Our team works closely with you to design shelters that not only meet the needs of your animals but also complement your outdoor space. From traditional to contemporary designs, the aesthetic possibilities are endless. Practical considerations, such as ease of cleaning, maintenance, and accessibility, are also integrated into the design process, ensuring that the shelters are as convenient for you as they are comfortable for your animals.


At Midlands Sheds and Summerhouses, we are dedicated to providing you with customised animal shelters that stand the test of time, offering sanctuary and comfort to your animals while enhancing the beauty of your outdoor space. Our commitment to quality craftsmanship and personalisation allows us to create unique shelters tailored to the specific needs of your animals, ensuring their health, happiness, and safety.

By choosing a customised animal shed, you’re not just investing in a structure; you’re investing in a home for your animals that reflects your care and consideration for their well-being. Whether you’re looking to shelter small pets or provide accommodation for larger livestock, our team is here to bring your vision to life, combining functionality with aesthetic appeal to create the perfect haven for your animals.
