House Plans

Over the last few months I have been working towards finding and securing a plot of land for my house.  I have been speaking with the Falkland Estate about the possibility of building the house on a site next to a barn on an old farm.  The plot is beautiful, it is on a slope surrounded by forest.  There is a waterfall nearby and a stunning mountain.


I have been playing around with designs of the shipping containers for about six months.  Last weekend my father came up to visit and he drew up the architectural plans for submission to planning permission. 13934865_1032574576859824_7981702341651075440_n13935134_1032574573526491_6797781841656022523_n14068247_1032574580193157_8645730282390902197_n

 

I am really happy with the design.  It is exactly as I had imagined it.  My father also came up with some good ideas for the arrangement of stairs and other things that I wouldn’t have the experience to design.front

 

The house consists of a porch area on the ground floor.  The kitchen is in the centre of the building.  To the right is a jewellery workshop separated from the house by a wall.  To the left of the kitchen is an open plan living area.GF

Upstairs consists of a bedroom and small shower room. Outside will also be a roof garden.

I plan to clad the building in recycled pallet crates and I hope to reclaim or recycle most of the materials for the build. I am now waiting for approval from both the Falkland estate and then planning permission from Fife Council.location
