Planning permission for Loch Lubnaig house and swimming pool

HLA are delighted to announce that full Planning permission has been granted for a wide ranging set of proposals to an existing dwelling house & former agricultural settlement on the banks of Loch Lubnaig, in the National Park of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. 
The approval includes for a new ancillary dwelling house, the extension and renovation of an existing Victorian house and a new contemporary swimming pool building, alongside an extensive landscaping strategy. A palette of traditional and contemporary materials, including brick, timber, red tin, natural stone and shuttered concrete has been employed to help restore the site to a condition fit for family use. A new ground source heat pump system will provide power to the site. 
Construction is expected to commence on site in the Summer of 2016. 

Seaside Home Complete in Inverness-shire

A new seaside family house is now complete in Roshven, Invernessshire.


The environmentally friendly house is constructed entirely of wood with Green oak frame creating large double height internal spaces. The timber walls have been super insulated with NBT breathable wood fibre insulation and a taped air tight wall construction. This makes the house very easy to heat. Due to the remote location there is no gas or water supply available. An Air Source Heat pump located under the houseuses electricity to generate energy at a three to one ratio to power the underfloor heating and domestic hot water. A bore hole drilled to a depth of fifty metres provides clean water from the rocks which is UV treated to provide the drinking water.
