North Woods Construction Ltd
Bird Hide - Alltyre Estate

25 square metres

Completed in 2015, this 25 sqm building offers a shelter to observe wildlife as well as a meeting place for educational groups and is part of a larger development of the Forres flood protection scheme on Altyre Estate. The structure is post and beam, milled from the estate's own larch and Douglas fir. It is clad in untreated estate larch and founded on small concrete piers raised off the ground on timber piloti. The bolted frames were pre-fabricated in our new workshop where steel flitch plates were inserted and other components pre-cut and finished.
