Little Spott Steading, Dunbar

The site which is elevated with views across the East Lothian coast line involved the reconstruction of a “B” listed farm steading into 14 residential units of varying sizes. Due to the dilapidated condition a proportion of the steading had to be reconstructed as new which meant reforming sloping ridges and wall heads to ensure the original character was retained. As a result of the shape and dimension irregularities the timber frame and roofs all had to be designed so that they could be constructed on site without any prefabrication.
