"All we knew initially was that we wanted an open plan layout, big bedrooms and of course Bill’s Bar!"

How We Brought the Mustard's Dream Home to Life

Bill had always wanted to build his own home, and as the director of his own electrical firm, he has seen plenty of houses in his line of work to get inspiration from.

Wanting to move back into town from the country, Bill & Eileen seized the opportunity to build a home for themselves when a rare plot of land become available in Montrose.

"Once we’d acquired the property our first port of call was Crawford's. We took them to the site and gave them a blank canvas to come up with ideas. All we knew initially was that we wanted an open plan layout, big bedrooms and of course Bill’s Bar!

David from Crawford Architecture presented the house using 3D walkthrough technology, it was brilliant as we could really visualise the end result and make little tweaks to perfect the design.

Our journey with planning was smooth, in fact we sailed through which was a relief and one less thing to stress about. With life having to continue around the project it was reassuring to know they were only a phone call away, and no matter what the issue it could easily be sorted.

Eileen worked closely with David taking time to consider all the details from the external cladding and downpipes to the staircase and bar.

“It took us approximately a year and a half to complete the house, but a lot of that was due to the amount of groundwork that was needed prior to the actual construction.

We’ve now lived in the property for a few years and are so glad we prioritised spaciousness in the design, having older kids it allows us all to have our own space, and when entertaining friends we can relax without being on top of each other.

We would highly recommend working with Crawford Architecture to others as they made the process straightforward and were always there when we need their support."
