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 variation upon the WH402 Whitehouse retains that design’s layout, but adds a sitting room extension to the gable end – ideal for a family who would prefer a separate family room and lounge area. The extension is timber clad, ensuring that the beautiful classic proportions of the main house are not compromised.
There is a large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms upstairs. Amendments to the layout are possible – for example, the addition of an en-suite bathroom to the larger bedroom, or the combining of the smaller bedrooms to make one larger room.
This model is ideal for rural areas where planners may have strict views of house style. Unlike many poor-quality copies, this design – because of its narrow plan and precise proportions – will fit in beautifully into the rural landscape.
Details and external materials can be altered according to your local vernacular, or to meet planning guidelines. This may be particularly important if you stay in a conservation area or a national park.
