The original part is a beautiful Victorian building part of
Craighall and quite possibly Kennels. This had been extended with a living and
kitchen area. The clients needed additional space for a growing family and were
in despair. When asked, they needed an additional 2 – 3 bedrooms and bathroom and
a living room. Any attempt to extend the house to match the existing would have
required the charm of the original. So a separate barn with a minimal link was
devised. Two stories with a gantry to the master bedroom looking into a bank
planted with choice shrubs.
Most of the work was carried out by the clients and was
built to a very tight budget.
