Mrs Miller and her husband Mr Bamfield married in 2006 each owning their own separate homes. Their future plan was to live together in a new home in the countryside. They looked at many areas around Caithness before finally deciding on the plot at Upper Humster, Wick. The location appealed to them due to its uninterrupted panoramic views of the nearby town of Wick. They liked the fact that they were building in a quiet and secluded part of the countryside whilst still being within reasonable distance to the town and its local amenities.
The house was designed by Mrs Miller’s son Jonathan Miller of NorCAD Design. It was important to Mrs. Miller that Jonathan’s design company was able to work very closely with Norscot when finalising the kit design and moving it through to production. This allowed the whole process to move smoothly and with little delay.
