project details

Client:
Sharon Webb & Roddy Regan

Value:
c. £100k

Dates:
Design: 2005/06.
On site: 2009/2010

 

Having purchased this delightful but derelict steading in Argyll, Sharon and Roddy approached Locate to help develop a house design for a very tight budget.  

Whilst living in a caravan on site, and with Roddy doing much of the work, the project will probably take a long time to complete, but as a labour of love, will be all the more appreciated once it is finished!

Work started on site late in 2009 and is likely to be completed late in 2011. The building has been highly insulated so that some areas of the original stonework have been left exposed."

The house will be heated by wood stoves in the Living and Kitchen areas, with solar thermal panels providing hot water in the warmer months. There will be a double height Kitchen / Dining / Family Room with a section of new timber frame wall and large glazed area to create a sense of space in an otherwise quite restricted shell.
