The house was built for Jane McFadzean. Jane works in London through the week, returning to the home farm on weekends where her brother and his family and her parents both live.

Jane was researching the different types of houses she could build and came across The Wee House Company, also based in Ayrshire.

Jane arranged a meeting with Jennifer Higgins, MD and after talking the project through with her family she decided to build a 2 bedroom Wee House.

The style of the interior is Scandinavian/mid-century by London designer Katy Stevenson Bretton. The house has an open plan kitchen / lounge area and is well-positioned on the farm to take in spectacular views of the open countryside.

The Wee House Company applied for planning consent in April 2016 and learned that The Dalduff Farmstead is located on the site of Dalduff Castle with some parts of the castle surviving as parts of the farmstead construction.

A late Bronze Age hoard, probably dating from around 700 BC, was found by workmen engaged in draining a field on the farm of Dalduff in 1846.

The hoard consisted of a pot without lid or cover, but with two bronze sword fragments placed over its mouth, and a small hoard of bronzes inside. An archaeological watching brief had to be undertaken whilst excavation took place for the foundation of the Wee House, however, there were no new findings.

Turtle Dove Grey paint was used on the interior walls in the lounge and bedroom with a more dramatic Antwerp Blue used in the porch and bathroom.

The paint is from the Dulux Heritage Range and one of the conditions in the planning approval was that the roof was to be natural slate. Jane wanted a traditional Belfast sink and also chose a Charnwood Cove 1 Log Burner to compliment the traditional appearance of the house.

On the exterior Swedish White and Lavender Grey paint was used. The end result is welcoming, picturesque and above all it met Jane’s expectation for her dream Wee House.

Testimonial from Jane (The Wee House Homeowner)

“I was really impressed by The Wee House Company!

I was offered guidance at every stage of the process by Jennifer and her team. They handled everything to do with the planning and building warrant application (even arranging for an archaeological watching brief that was required by the planners) and took care of all the ground works that were required to get our house in to the site and connected to services.

The team worked quickly and efficiently on site. The house is adjacent to a wedding venue and The Wee House Company were happy to work around the wedding dates to ensure that no disruption was caused to any of the bridal parties and their guests.

There was a great choice of finishes available for me to customize my Wee House- everything from paint colours, to bathroom suites! I’m delighted with how the house has turned out and am thoroughly enjoying living there.”

    Love everything about this Wee House. I wish they were built in the States, because this would make a perfect retirement home for my husband and myself. Even the colors are spot on!
