Castlemilk stables required indent stone repairs showing best practice principles by retaining as much of the historic stonework as possible.

Timber is used throughout this building, with only the junctions between columns, beams and walls being strengthened with steel brackets.
This small housing development of a Forestry Commission Site maximises the use of locally sourced Scottish timber.
