Construction of a contemporary porch and sunroom extension to a traditional granite Aberdeenshire farmhouse is complete.
The porch extension is constructed from a series of larch posts and timber painted windows, with a natural slate roof. The kitchen, previously located in a granite extension, has been relocated to the heart of the home and a kitchen by Lethenty Cabinetmakers has been installed. The granite walls have been retained and repointed in lime
and the gable has been extended and in-filled with board on board Scottish Larch cladding.
It was important to ak|a to adopt an honest approach to clearly distinguish between old and new. A boiler stove is located within the sun room and is linked to solar panels which have been installed on the roof. Freestanding photovoltaic panels are also located on the site to provide the house with electricity.
