A Timber Frame Extension for Bassendean Hill Cottage
Originally built in 1800’s, the days of this picturesque shepherd’s cottage might have been over. Luckily, realising its full potential, the house owners decided to give it a second chance. So, to make it a cozy place for a weekend getaway, the Kit Co. was contracted to build a modern timber frame extension.
We love creative challenges, so we really enjoyed working on this project! The modern timber frame extension works perfectly with the original, more traditional part of the cottage. A refreshing and contemporary twist to the whole property! It was also perfect for an open plan layout of the lounge, dining and kitchen areas, making the interior airy and welcoming. Besides, the space on the first floor created a perfect arrangement for an en-suite master bedroom.
The house owners also wanted to make the most of its enviable location. And it’s no wonder! The cottage enjoys being set within a gorgeous Scottish countryside. To make the most of it, the added timber frame construction features an array of windows and full height doors to the garden space– isn’t this a perfect place for summer barbecue sessions?!! And we are not even mentioning the space being flooded with a plenty of natural light. Definitely a plus if you live in Scotland.
