Firkin Steading / TarbetProjects
This redundant agricultural building enjoys an elevated position with beautiful views towards Ben Lomond and Loch Lomond. The client wished to convert the existing steading into a dwellinghouse and to extend the accommodation through the creation of a rear and side extension. The rear extension is integrated into the existing grassland topography whilst the new side extension acts as a modern ‘beacon’ which is complimentary, yet completely different to the solid steading.
There were no services on site so a new ground source heat pump was installed, together with a new borehole to provide a potable water supply.
The project was completed in January 2018 and has since gone on to win The Daily Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovating award for ‘Best Renovation’ and was shortlisted for the Herald Property Awards.
