Slaty Creek Hut 


Waiheke River, West Coast


A historic hunters hut built in the 1950s, said to have been restored by reefton builder, Dave, a few years back.

Notable for its now rare beech slab construction, this hut was probably the last example of this hand adzed style before  standardised  huts started filling up the bush.

This Mini Hut version is made of rimu as red beech is not to be milled these days.
