According to the design statement from the architects, we’re building a “subtle neo-traditional Scottish dwelling that alludes strongly to the longhouse design whilst incorporating a modern, energy efficient interior”.
The phrase neo-traditional had us both hooting with laughter. Honestly, the marketing speak that gets rolled out in the interest of persuading planning departments!
It will be a very simple, slate roofed, larch clad house.
It should sit low and silver slowly and quietly into the landscape amongst the trees. It will be well insulated, snug and energy efficient.
We’re running final checks on the planning permission pack this weekend, then off it will go into the laps of the planning department of the Highland Council to seek it’s fortune.
We have everything crossed that it is accepted. Another milestone reached on our journey…
