Project Name: The Timber House

Building Type: Residential

Location: Scotland’s Housing Expo, Milton of Leys, Inverness

Architect: John Gilbert Architects

Project: The house is constructed from 95mm thick cross laminated timber panels made of spruce and pine laid across one another and bonded together to form a very strong unit.
