Our scheme for a new house off de Freville Avenue, in the West Chesterton Conservation Area, was unanimously voted for planning approval last week. The building has been designed as an L-shaped plan with a south facing courtyard shaded by a mature horse chestnut tree. The combination of a timber structural frame, high levels of insulation, extensive roof lighting and a wood burner should ensure that the building has a low energy consumption.
Thanks to Barrie Munn who fed, watered and puts us up (and put up with us) in his splendid Grasshopper Hotel overlooking Glasgow Central Station. We managed to visit the delightful but almost deserted Burrell Museum, as well as having a tour of the more vibrant Reid building.
