Rural Homes Collection
Designs for the countryside
Our unique 'Rural Homes Collection' has been carefully designed and planned specifically for customers who are wishing to build their homes in Rural & Countryside locations.
High quality design must be integral to new development and local area differences must be respected. Likewise, features and finishes can help connect, or disconnect, a house to its surroundings. The challenge therefore lies in encouraging designs which are distinctive and responsive to their setting.
It is essential that the proposed location and siting of new housing considers the impact on the landscape, in terms of both immediate and wider surroundings. If a proper fit in the landscape is not achieved, then even a well designed building can fail. Overall, a well designed house must reflect the landscape in which it is set.
“Building in timber frame offers many advantages and is now regarded as the most environmentally friendly and truly sustainable method of construction..”
Both government legislation and national/ local initiatives have led to the introduction of a range of updated guidelines to inform and guide prospective self builders (together with builders and architects) as to how best design and plan for homes in the countryside.
At Scotframe we have the expertise to ‘Thermally Engineer’ your project to ensure the most practical and cost effective thermal solution is adopted.
