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 three-bedroom house balances a modest exterior with spectacular internal spaces. Entry is via a wind-lobby and utility room at the rear, leading through to an open-plan kitchen and dining area. It then opens up into a dramatic, double height living area, which appears from the outside an extension, so as to preserve the core building’s striking, symmetrical design.
A large bedroom downstairs has direct access to a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom, while a stair leads up to two generous bedrooms and a further bathroom.
Details and external materials can be changed according to your local vernacular, or to meet planning guidelines. This may be particularly important if you live in a conservation area or a national park.
