Burns returns

May 28 2009

Burns returns
Carpenter Oak & Woodland have commenced work on the timber frame of a Robert Burns Museum for the National Trust for Scotland.

The locally sourced Douglas Fir structure forms a key plank of the £17m home to all things Burns and lends itself well to architects Simpson & Brown’s drive to create a dynamic wave shaped roof.

This is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s most famous poet, lending symbolism to a strategically sited project at the birthplace of Burns.

The new museum is scheduled to be fully open by 2010.
