Projects on site

 

 

 

 

 

WT Architecture seem to be converting old agricultural buildings all over the Lothians at the moment.

Work to our steading conversion in East Lothian is now underway, with the site being cleared and groundworks commencing.

In Midlothian, work on our granary conversion continues. With the majority of masonry alterations, new steelwork and timber kit complete, the focus moves on to the reconstruction of the roof. Click here to stay updated with the on-site blog.
