Architect Designed, Sustainable Homes

Do you want to build your own sustainable home in the Highlands and Islands? R.HOUSE is the collaborative partnership between award-winning Skye architects, Rural Design and specialist builders, James MacQueen Building Contractors Ltd, also based on Skye.

Together we design and build beautiful contemporary prefabricated homes, our R.HOUSE range, that embody the core principles of sustainability and fit effortlessly into the landscape.

Living and working in the Isle of Skye, off the West Coast of Scotland, means we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in rural builds. We understand the challenges of constructing homes that can withstand the harshest environments and exposure to severe weather while optimising our clients comfort, energy efficiency and air quality.

At the heart of R.HOUSE we're trying to make a difficult process easy, building houses efficiently, sustainably and as affordable as possible.

R.HOUSE self-build homes are fully project managed by us through our complete Turnkey Service. We work with you from the very start, even advising on the suitability of your proposed building plot, to handing you the keys on completion.

Sit back, relax, we'll handle it!


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.
