Denizen Works has been given the go-ahead for a major extension to a cottage beside the Loch Earn, Scotland
The small dwelling, known as Edinample cottage, sits on a slope overlooking the lake in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
Proposals for the 135m² extension include a single-storey block with a utility space and living area, as well as a kitchen and dining room.
There will also be ‘sheltered’ outdoor seating and a ‘picture window’ designed to capture the view.
Murray Kerr, director of Denizen Works, said: ‘It’s all about manipulating the views to the big picture window at the end, which has got a diagonal view across the loch. It’s going to be splendid.
‘It’s a major addition but it will still allow the cottage to exist and work if there are two families there […] the main living space is the big social centre for the house.’
Work is expected to start on site in January next year with a scheduled completion date of October 2017.
