Our Whitehouse range of kit houses has been inspired by the classic Hebridean cottage, characterised by its white rendered walls, slate roof and attractive dormer windows. These buildings supplanted the traditional ‘blackhouse’ form and became commonplace across Scotland – as such, planning concerns should be mitigated.
This one-bedroom cottage uses a clean, straightforward design following classical proportions. It’s simple, traditional exterior will be at home in any rural area, while the open-plan interior makes for a clean, contemporary living space.
The front elevation of the house is balanced by a central window, allowing light to flood into the downstairs living area and creating an airy, spacious feel despite its small footprint.
Entry is via the rear porch, to help keep draughts to a minimum. A central stair, which defines the kitchen/dining area from the living room, takes you to the vaulted first floor containing the bedroom and a spacious bathroom.
This design can be modified to suit your particular needs – for example, by changing the layout or adding more storage. See bespoke for more details, or contact us directly with your requests. These designs can also be provided as a timber frame house. The house is shown here with traditional chimneys and skews.
