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.
