The R.Bothy Beag (Beag meaning small in Gaelic) is the most compact of the R.HOUSE architectural designs and perhaps the most versatile. R.Bothy Beag can be configured as a one-bedroom annexe, a studio or a home office.
The R.Bothy is our midsized one-bedroom home from the Bothy range. This contemporary timber home fits effortlessly into any rural landscape. It is an ideal weekend retreat, holiday let, or starter home.
The R.Bothy Mòr (Mòr being Gaelic for big) is the largest R.HOUSE design from the Bothy range. This perfectly proportioned one-bedroom sustainable house would make an ideal holiday let, starter home or rural retreat for those looking to downsize.
The R1 is the only single-storey, one-bedroom R.HOUSE home with a pitched roof, with its contemporary design drawing inspiration from the traditional Scottish longhouse.
The R2.5 is an extended version of the R2. Based on the same floor plan, the R2.5 benefits from adding a lean-to living space to the kitchen gable, providing a larger main living space with the option of replacing the separate living room with a third downstairs bedroom.
The RB2 is a cleverly designed two-bedroom home that maximises space, making it perfect as a holiday home!
The RE2 is a variation of our R2 design which is based on the traditional ‘two up, two down’ layout.
The R2 is based on a traditional ‘two up, two down’ home. It is a wonderful option for the first-time buyer as the house layout is deliberately simple to keep construction costs down.
The R3 prefab home is based on a similar core plan layout to the R2. However, the R3 benefits from an open plan, part double-height living space, with full-height windows to maximise on solar heat gain and potential views.
This single-storey, three-bedroom prefab home has a compact, efficient layout The high ceiling in the dining/living space combined with the full-height windows give the feeling of space and connection with the landscape.
The RE3 prefab home is an extended version of our R3 design. The RE3 benefits from a large porch and utility room, ideal for coats and shoes after a refreshing country walk.
The RB3 prefab home is an extremely spacious house design. Although all on one floor, there is the option to add another floor for extra bedrooms or living space.
The R4 combines a modified ‘two up, two down’ R2 layout (containing the bedrooms and bathrooms) and a single-storey kitchen/dining/living extension wing with sliding glazed doors to the exterior.
The RE5 house design is a generous 219 meters. It has a versatile layout, allowing lots of options to suit your needs. Bedrooms can be changed to create additional living spaces, family rooms or a home office.
The RB5 house design is one of our largest houses in the R.HOUSE range, with an area of 194 metres. It has all the space a large family could wish for, complete with a separate extra living space, two bathrooms and an ensuite.

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.
