Each month we’ll handcraft a batch of one specific hut, showcasing the process and delving into the history of the real hut.
Mingha Biv pre restoration (above) and after (below)
|Arthurs Pass National Park, Canterbury|
This basic two-bunk biv, on the Mingha River just south of Goat Pass, was built by the Canterbury Uni Tramping Club at some point before 1969 judging by the graffiti on its exterior (“Uni Hall 1969!!”).
In 2019 Permolat undertook its refurbishment to save it from being pulled down. They gave it a snazzy coat of orange and left the new roof and chimney unpainted.
A huge chimney on a tiny hut just begs to be minified and that combination of bright orange and shiny silver is a winning one in our books.
