A huge thank you to R.HOUSE for helping my dreams become a reality! You guys were wonderful to work with!

Matt Millward, R2.5, Achnacree Bay

The most exciting thing we’ve ever done! Everything is better than we could have expected. We would definitely recommend R.HOUSE to others!

Jamie and Elaine, RF2 Enhanced, Holmisdale

Absolutely superb! Couldn’t have wished for anything better. We are absolutely delighted, everything was done right the first time. We had top grade workers. Everything is in the right place, it’s so well designed and we haven't put our heating on since we moved in, in March.

Malcolm and Doreen Smith, RF3 Harrapool, Isle of Skye

We would highly recommend R HOUSE, having had 2 houses built by the company; a holiday home in 2015, followed by our main home in 2018. The company employ highly skilled staff who are able to undertake the whole process of the builds smoothly and without delays.
