Collree Self builders

Homes, Sustainable Architecture

In association with Duncan Roberts Architects, we developed proposals for the Collree Self Build Housing Association, a group of ten families from Easterhouse, to build their own houses. The houses consist of a mixture of semi- detached type and bungalows, all built using timber kits with a blockwork outer skin. Community Self Build Scotland carried out a skills audit so the proposed design needs to match the skills of the group.


Training for the self-builders was provided as part of the scheme, with some additional help through Blairtummock Housing Association who acted as the main provider and retained control over specifications and standards.
