  1. There are a number of self builders on this forum from Scotland so let's introduce ourselves here. I am part way through my own new build some 20 miles north of Inverness in the Highlands. It's a timber framed house with wood fibre external wall insulation and then render. Aimng for a good standard of insulation and air tightness and low running costs.
  2. Hi Everyone I'm nearing the end of my first self-build project: a timber framed, larch clad, slate roofed 1.5 storey 4bed house in the Scottish Highlands. We have air-source heat pump and underfloor heating, plus MVHR which means there's less need to open windows - especially during the midge season! You could say my specialist subject is Ikea as nearly every room has some Ikea stuff in it, including the kitchen which has turned out very well. The MVHR has been interesting too, with some lessons learned after the first winter of it being in use. I've got an impending issue with the final Building Standards sign-off, which I'll post separately in a relevant forum. All the best!
  3. Hi everyone, I have plans to build a log cabin on my croft land and I'm looking for some advice. Hopefully one of you can help me out ! If I were to build a "caravan" (log cabin) on croft land to serve as a holiday let/self catering accommodation, do I need planning permission for this ? Is it possible for me to build the caravan without planning permission and then apply for change of use to a holiday let ? Would I need a building warrant for a drainage connection and if so how do I go about getting one ? My local council is the Highland Council. I've tried my best to find these things out without contacting planning etc but no luck. Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks !
