New build 3 bedroom dwelling – a self build project & an ongoing labour of love for the owner who has built this in his spare time!. This house was constructed on a very contentious site, being in the Lake District National Park within a SSSI, over-looking Ullswater lake. The restrictions imposed by the National Park were quite limiting, as was the steeply sloping site in a protected woodland.
We have tried to re-create features of traditional Lakeland buildings within a new build house, using a Green Oak timber frame internally to the upper storey of the building. We first designed this building in 2000, providing our services through from site survey, initial sketch designs, lengthy planning negotiations with the LDNPA, planning approval, building regulations & construction detail drawings, with on site advice & visits as & when required.
