Kirk Park

Aberfeldy, October 2009

This is a self build timber frame house of  76 sq,m. built in 2001. In terms of heating it benefits from its double storey living area facing south and the limited amount of glazing to the north. There is 200mm cellulose insulation in the roof, 150mm in the floor and 145mm in the walls. The external cladding is Sitka spruce and the roof is finished in natural slate.

The main form of heat is a centrally placed wood burning stove and there is also an LPG combi boiler for hot water and central heating. Water is from a spring on the hill nearby and sewage is to a septic tank

The house was built with the help of the Rural Home Ownership Grant. A new funding scheme has recently been set up for the Scottish Highlands, the Highland Self Build Loan Fund
