Aberdeenshire self-build homes earn UK-wide recognition
October 5 2018
Two self-build homes in Aberdeenshire have come to national attention after being named as finalists in a UK-wide contest.
Denwell Cottage in Insch is in the running for the title of ‘best timber frame home’ whilst its counterpart; Glencommon near Banchory, is a finalist in the best self build category for projects valued at under £250k.
Denwell Cottage has been designed by Annie Kenyon Architects to employ a mix of timber cladding and white render together with a glazed gable under a slate roof. It was built in just 14 weeks to a set budget.
Glencommon meanwhile is a timber frame home built by Fiddes Architects within a tight seven-week timescale. Clad in a combination of Siberian larch with modern slate wrap-around its projected running costs are under £600 per year.
Both homes were built by Cairnrowan Custom Homes using timber kit packages supplied by Scotframe.
The BuildIt Awards will take place in London on 9 November.
