Newly finished tinyhouse for 1-2-1s, self catering Loch Ness
I am delighted that I have finally finished the tinyhouse build at my home in Loch Ness. We are open and are already booked out most of July & August. It's been a long, hard battle to build after the news almost a year ago that I had been sold a garden pod fraudulently by P & A Pods in Forres. Along with 30 or so others, we were left devastated at losing deposits and in some cases, full payments. The case is going to court soon, but the people involved are still trading under various names such as Timber Builds Ltd ( TimberBuildsltd on facebook ) and Pod Clever ( PodClever.ie on facebook ). My hope is to prevent anyone else going through what I did as they are continuing to take deposits on invisible pods.
What came out of this though was a group of people who helped each other out and supported each other. Joinery & pods ltd stepped in and were amazing and completed my build for me. Lynda from Alba Craft offered to make my beautiful Harris tweed blind which is probably my favourite thing in the house.
In the end it was built better than I had ever imagined with Colin creating a perfect and unique design that is now a restful and beautiful space. The summer months will be booked out with tourists to the area, but the intention is to use it as a bespoke space for 1-2-1 clients to come for a few days and enjoy the tinyhouse after spending a couple of days in the landscape around Loch Ness with myself.
It has been a long journey which has involved upset, financial problems followed by moving forwards regardless and finally a space that has been created with kindness, determination and a lot of love. Maybe one day you will come and stay!
