Mr & Mrs Hess, Heathcliff, Brough, Caithness

Retired Philadelphian police captain, Fred Hess and his wife first visited Caithness  back in 1989 and fell in love with the beautiful, picturesque countryside the county has to offer.

After numerous further visits they bought their plot near Dunnet Head in 1993. Their first thoughts were to rehabilitate the derelict cottage on the plot but after speaking to a local architect and then coming to Norscot, they decided self-build was their best option.

Mr A Gunn, Newton of Swiney, Lybster, Caithness

Mr Gunn spent his childhood growing up in the town of Lybster. Although he lived away in Aberdeen for some years, Lybster was always his home, and when he acquired a big plot of land he knew right away that he wanted to self-build there. The piece of land was previously owned by his grandparents, who lived in the house next door, which made the location even more nostalgic to him.

Mr Gunn browsed a number of companies before settling on Norscot to supply his timber frame kit. He chose Norscot as they not only offered the best price but also because they manufactured eco-kits which was something he was eager to use for the build.

Mr & Mrs H Gunn, J B Court, Halkirk, Caithness

Mr & Mrs Gunn spent 52 years living in their home at Georgemas before they decided to move back to Mrs Gunn’s hometown of Halkirk. They chose their plot in Halkirk as it is in a quiet area, away from a busy road unlike where they stayed previously. Their new home is also situated within walking distance of their daughter’s house which the couple felt was a requirement now that they were both getting older.

The couple got in touch with Norscot in March 2016 to talk about their self-build requirements. Mr & Mrs Gunn chose the Drumbeg kit which is part of our cottage range. They extended the main bedroom by a metre in order to provide them with additional space so they could add more wardrobes. They also increased the size of the attached garage and adjusted the position of some of the windows.
