Set on a stunning site on the edge of open countryside in Fyvie, the Type B showcases the Caber House Designs’ inherent flexibility.
The living room area has been swapped with the kitchen and dining position to allow a gable end pantry and utility room extension. In addition, a sunroom extension has been added to the south elevation from the dining area, and a further gable extension provides a ground floor master suite.
On the First Floor, the end bedroom has been repurposed as a full width home cinema room, with the remaining two bedrooms sharing a Jack-and-Jill shower room.
A client-installed metal standing seam roof and mono-pitch dormers giving this house an instant modern look, with render, timber and natural stone completing the external finishes. The metal roof compliments the alu-clad triple glazed windows.
This A-rated, energy-efficient house is powered by a heat pump and 4kW photovoltaic array, serving underfloor heating and a modern corner stove sits adjacent to an enormous single window in the living room. Furthermore, heat recovery ventilation provides fresh air and controls heat loss.
External works include a gabion basket wall to the front garden – another skill in Caber House’s contractor’s portfolio.
Having been named ”The Barn” by the clients, this Caber House sits well within its setting, adjacent to a B-listed former Manse.
