Building The Dream

One of our self-build home projects, 'Glasshouse' in Dalgety Bay, will feature on More 4’s Building the Dream at 9 pm on Tuesday the 31st of January, 2017!

The programme follows Alan and Lucy Brown’s journey which began in August 2012 when they took the plunge and bought the plot on Lumsdaine Drive, overlooking the Forth bridges, after viewing around 50 potential homes for sale.

The couple and their 11-year-old twin daughters moved into their new home just before Christmas 2016.

‘Glasshouse’ is a two-storey dwelling with three en-suite bedrooms, a master bedroom en-suite and attached dressing room, utility room and plant room on the ground floor, with an open plan kitchen/living dining/lounge area and further WC on the first floor. The dining and lounge area has access to a large balcony with views south over the Firth of Forth.

Built by local firm Dalgety Joiners, the exterior is largely white render with a dark grey stone cladding to minimise the impact on neighbouring housing. Extensive use of glass maximises the stunning views and natural sunlight, as does the glass balustrade within the balcony area. Internally, the property is bright and contemporary, with light grey wooden floors and light grey marble tiles. There is also a large glass floor in the living area and a timber and glass floating staircase.

We are delighted and proud that one of our designs will be shown on television and look forward to seeing the programme which we’re sure will show off the house well.
