Our very own Grand Designs Project- House on the Loch!  Grand Designs

The plot chosen for this house was on a steep hill leading down onto the very scenic Loch Carron in Scotland.   Usually on a house build such as this, a lot of block work would need to done in order to make the foundations stable and build the house up from the hillside.  Steel frame

We gave our team the challenge to develop something more cost effective and functional.

 They developed the idea to use steel legs to build a platform that would form the base of the house, then the floor was poured on to a metal deck to create a large concrete slab for the house to be built on.

 The results speak for themselves.   The steel frame coming out from the hillside has enabled the homeowners to take full advantage of the stunning view in front of them whilst the steel frame, rather than the built up brick wall allows them to utilise the space below the house too.
