R.House was established in 2012 when James MacQueen Building Contractors and Rural Design architects came together to create a sustainable and efficient solution for housing in the Highlands. Together they created the R.House, a house that could be workshop constructed, minimising costs and waste without compromising on quality and design.

R.House offer a selection of 1-5 bedroom, architect designed, contemporary and sustainable timber frame homes which are made in their factory on Skye and delivered to projects throughout Scotland. R.House offer a full turnkey service taking your project from planning permission, building warrant, utilities and ground works right through to your completed home.
