And finally… House on wheels needs a home

And finally... House on wheels needs a home

A tiny ‘eco house’ and its owner are looking for a new plot of land in Stirlingshire to call home.

The unusual instruction has been received by rural property specialist Baird Lumsden, a sister business to Scottish chartered surveyors, DM Hall.

“Usually we help clients find the plot of land first, and then they build the house – not the other way around!” says Jennifer Campbell, head of rural agency at Baird Lumsden.

The eco house is fully transportable, built to bespoke specifications and clad in timber, specifically designed to have a low carbon footprint.

The owner has strong conservation and ecology values and wants to set an example by living in a building that is as sustainable as possible.

“Our client recognises her environmental responsibilities and has fulfilled a lifetimes ambition to live in an eco-house. She loves her home and now we need to source a permanent home for it,” Ms Campbell says of her client, who loves the Stirlingshire area and wants to stay close to friends.

The house was built by Tiny ECO Homes UK, a Northumberland-based company that builds small environmentally-friendly mobile homes on wheels. These can be legally towed by drivers on UK roads. Features in its homes include mezzanine bedrooms, breakfast bars and underfloor heating.

The eco home’s owner has a budget of up to £150,000 for the right plot of land, with “privacy and peaceful surroundings” preferred.

Interested sellers who may have a suitable plot of land can contact Jennifer Campbell at Baird Lumsden on 01786 833 800 or
