Scottish Larch

For the last few months we have been having an extension added to our house.  This is the first time we have embarked on any major work on our home and the whole experience has been a bit of a learning curve. However, the end is in sight and the push is on to get everything finished in time for Christmas.

We decided to go for a Scottish Larch cladding on the new building- it's a sustainable material which is locally grown and requires no preservatives - in time the wood will change to an attractive silver colour.  I am pleased with the finished result and happy with the choice of dark grey for the window frames.

The taping/skimming of the walls should be completed by early next week and then the decorating and floor laying can begin, but in the meantime the vacant room is still being put to good use...


  1. That looks very good, what is it's final use deemed to be?

  2. It looks wonderful, I love the colour of the window frames. Here's hoping your in by Christmas, it'll would be a lovely room for the Christmas tree.

  3. Toffeeapple - its a garden type room to give us a bit more light and airy living space downstairs in the house, elaine x
