The Lochgair is a house designed to fit a very shallow site of only 5.5m in depth between a public road and a sea wall. It was built atop an old boat-shed and both the corner bay window and the dining room were, in fact, partially cantilevered out over the sea loch and the whole included a small patio at one end and space for visiting cars at the other end. It's 132 sq. metres provided 2 double bedrooms (one with en suite), a study/bedroom, kitchen/breakfast room, living room, separate dining room and shows just how one can shoe-horn a reasonably-sized house onto a tiny plot, with every room facing the view.
