Tabula Rasa

An eerily empty patch of dirt has now replaced the former farmhouse at Loch Tummel, following the completion of the demolition works. Although there is a twinge of sadness at the removal of the house and adjacent byre, there is now a real sense of the possibility for change and renewal. As much material as possible has been salvaged from the former buildings: roof slates carefully stripped by hand for reuse; stonework set aside for reuse in the new design; and timber salvaged and recycled by a local market garden.

Works to the outbuilding continue to progress, with foundations, slabs and main external walls complete. The next period will see the erection of the roof and start of the timber cladding.
