The Eco house at Branshogle has allowed owner Caroline Cuthbert to take advantage of the natural energy by adjusting her life to the rhythms of nature and do her part for the environment.

The green oak main room was built on the footprints of an old byre and was constructed from timber out of woodlands around Caroline’s previous home.

The warmth of the oak and the beautiful vertical space of the main room creates the heart of the house. 

The architect was Jennifer Robertson of Simpson & Brown.  The house is a well-proportioned T-shaped building with steeply pitched roofs and wooden sash windows.
