Bothy Conversion – Borders
Built as a barn and originally altered by the Practice to form a gallery in the 1980s, the bothy was insulated and lined internally to create a habitable living space for use as a holiday let with a new timber framed extension housing an attractive bedroom and bathroom.
The existing barn vents were kept, reclaimed timber flooring and doors used where possible and a salvaged shop counter forms the focal point for the living space. The space is heated by a wood burning stove with a back boiler and rainwater collected for use in the garden.
Work on site was organised by the client.
