We have specified materials that are seen in various guises in vernacular architecture throughout the British countryside. These materials are not only functional, durable, and sustainable, but are attractive, suitable for purpose and can be homogenous in many different contexts, be it urban or rural.

Construction

The Bothies are constructed using a digitally-manufactured building system. In this process sheets of OSB are cut into labelled parts on a CNC machine and assembled by hand into cassettes before being fully insulated and sealed. This system is used for both the prefabricated and flat pack systems.

Fittings & Fixtures

Our move-in ready turnkey Bothies come complete with fittings and fixtures from leading brands such as Russwood flooring and Anglepoise lights. These were chosen for their performance and design qualities, which match the look and feel of the Bothies. 

Scottish furniture maker Colin Parker has also designed a range of furniture items specifically for the Artist Bothy. Each of the pieces was developed in collaboration with the Bothy Stores team to slot neatly into the interior and complement its handcrafted feel. 

Owners can choose from a range of products that introduce extra layers of functionality to the space and ensure each Bothy is tailored to the specific needs of its users. These include a wood-burning stove, window shutters and decking.

Services

The Bothy has provision for water and power supply and is fully wired with lighting and socket points. Water, waste and electrical connections will need to be implemented on site. The Bothy has integral surface water drainage with concealed downpipes. These can be routed to a collection point, soakaway, or to existing drainage, depending on the services and ground conditions at the proposed site.
