African Huts



African thatched huts are a sophisticated outdoor structure that creates a sense of calm and family space for all to enjoy. The roof not only looks elegant with its clean lines and tight African tiles it also has the added benefit of keeping you all cooler underneath by at least 10 degrees.

The Benefits of natural thatching

  • Natural insulation – offering maximum UV protection.
  • Up to 5 – 10 degrees cooler than other roofing structures.
  • Easy, no fuss installation.
  • No condensation – making them an ideal application for spas, and alfresco areas.
  • Extremely water resistant.
  • Long lifespan and durability.


  • 35 degrees roof pitch to extend the roof life.
    The Roof pitch improves the life of the roof by maintaining correct water run off & preventing damage caused by winds
  • 150mm Rafter overhang
    Built like a traditional house roof with the weight of the roofing material & the rafters supported & fastened directly on top of the roof beams
    Adding superior strength to your structure as well as being much more appealing.

Pre-cut Vs Pre-assembled Kits


Timber roof beams, rafters and hips are pre-cut to their specified roof pitch and pre drilled ready for assembly. This is the entry level of every DIY gazebo kit out there on the Market & an important question to ask when shopping around.

DIY Gazebo and Bali Huts take it to the next level. We take the Pre-cut pieces and physically assemble the entire Timber roof frame on our warehouse floor. This allows us to measure all rafter spacings, accurately cut all roof battens, label the structure in our unique numbering sequence and sort out any unforeseen issues before it is sent out to you.

Once complete we dis-assemble and either send it to the staining department or pack it into a flatpack ( depending on your options) Ready for transport or Pickup.

NOTE:  Roof sheeting is not cut to size. It is required to be cut onsite once frame has been installed for it to be 100% accurate.

Pre-assembled Kits

  • Guaranteed Fit & peace of mind
  • Roof Battens already Cut or
    80mm spacings for thatching already marked
    (depending on what kit you have chosen)

  • line up rafters with measured markings
  • line up screws with drilled screw holes
  • Time on assembling a pre-assembled after posts & roof beams are level:
    Approx 3-4 hours (depending on structure size & your level of experience)

  • battens come at full lengths and will require cutting onsite to be accurate.
