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.
The WH302 is a dramatic re-imagining of the ‘whitehouse’ concept. Still true to the original proportions of the traditional buildings, this modern interpretation locates its three bedrooms on the ground floor, and a stunning open plan living area under the open coombed roof.
The house is entered via a rear extension comprising wind-lobby, utility room and storage space. A hallway leads to three bedrooms and two bathrooms, each with direct access to the garden via sliding glass doors. Upstairs, the open kitchen, dining and living areas are flooded with light from square dormer windows. The wood-burning stove forms a natural focal point.
A small WC is also located on this floor, according to building regulations.
There is scope for amendments – for example, there is the option of traditional dormers or a continuous, glazed box dormer along the length of the house. It can also be provided as a timber frame house upon request. See bespoke for more information, or contact us directly with your requests.
