2024 is here

So 2024 has arrived and I have been very bad at adding any news or content to this page - a quick preview of our 2024 project should do for now until i feel like writing any more. The usual mixed bag for us - in all corners of Scotland from Harris, to Luing, from the West End of Glasgow to The Scottish Borders…no unifying themes, just interesting projects in interesting places for interesting clients - as my auld Da used to say “never be boring”.  

Ever Further Afield

We only really like working in wild and remote areas – not only for the added challenge – but it gives you something to look at while you hang about the site waiting for the inevitable lost Jewson’s driver. Most of our rural work is in the Western Highlands: Trossachs, Breadalbane, Argyll etc but this month we are really branching out. Isle of Harris and the Borders! Must make sure our site visits are pretty well spaced apart…the photo below is our Harris site, where the weather is apparently always like this.

Hot Weather is good for digging

We have been blessed with unseasonably good weather for what seems like weeks now. As we are trying to develop a site with some of the worst ground conditions I have ever encountered – a prolonged period of dry weather has been a real blessing. We have supervised the moving, placing and shaping of hundreds of tons of concrete, stone and drainage to prepare the site at Dualt House for the next stage of building. Sticking to the maxim of “every day’s a school day”: No matter how much crushed stone that you calculate you need – double it!
