The Wee House Co.'s new custom-build modular home

Scotland-based modular housing firm The Wee House Company has just embarked on its largest Wee House to date, a four-bedroom bespoke build home measuring 215 sq. m.

The house is almost nine times the size of a Studio Wee House, the smallest property in the company’s portfolio.

The build will feature an open plan kitchen-dining-living area, office, utility room, walk in wardrobe, two en-suite bathrooms, one family bathroom, one w/c, a wood burning stove, and vaulted ceilings.

The owners of the custom-built house are young couple Daryl McWhinnie and Heather Campbell.

Heather said: “We are excited to claim the title of Biggest Wee House yet.

“When we first contacted The Wee House Company, I’ll admit that the ‘wee’ brand name did make us wonder if they would be able to take on a project such as ours, but within minutes of speaking to the team any concerns we had completely vanished, and it became clear the design possibilities were endless.

“As first-time homeowners with zero knowledge of self-building, we really valued the guidance of the design manager who guided us through every step of the process.”

Managing director of The Wee House Company Jennifer Higgins said: “We are delighted to be delivering this 215sq. m. home for our client, and I look forward to seeing the progress unfold in our factory in the weeks ahead.

“The commission of this large-scale project represents a real opportunity for us to showcase what we can do, and perhaps it might even pique the interest of an audience we have not yet reached before.”

All Wee Houses are constructed off site in The Wee House Company’s Ayrshire factory and are comprised of different modules.

The modules are completed to ceiling height with kitchens, bathrooms, plumbing and electrics all fitted before being transported to site for the final 10% of work to be carried out.

Anything that can’t be used is sorted by material: plastic and cardboard are turned into recyclable bales and wood off-cuts are used to help heat the factory.
