Rural Aberdeenshire is the location for the Model D House, a prototype for affordable kit houses. I photographed the house for Build it Magazine over the summer and it has been recently featured .
Constructed from Scottish timber, the house was created from a concept aimed at exploring affordable, low-carbon homes which could be easily constructed in rural communities.
The house was pre fabricated in factory and then pieced together on site and completed within 20 weeks. This 3 bed, 2 bathroom home was built for £140,000 excluding fees.
The Model-D, which was also nominated for a Scottish Design Award in the Affordable Housing Category, received further recognition when it was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Sustainability Category of the Aberdeenshire Design Awards. And it was shortlisted for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award.
