Project details


This impressive 460mcountryside home includes three bedrooms, a swimming pool and panoramic views of the Scottish Highlands.

JJI roofs are still relatively uncommon in builds; they are manufactured to precise specifications using high grade solid timber flanges bonded to an OSB web.

The combination of JJ-I rafters and glulam beams were the ideal solution for the unique shape and long span of the dwelling design. The glued laminated timber provides an ultra-modern aesthetic and has an exceptional strength to weight ratio, while the JJ-I rafters are shrink and warp resistant and are compliant with Part E sound legislations.

In order to provide a cost-efficient solution for the client and speed up delivery, it was agreed that the JJ-I would be supplied uncut. Pasquill was on-hand to support the client throughout the entire duration of the build, and despite Covid-19 challenges it also managed to arrange a socially distanced site visit to meet with the client, project manager and joiners.

The Design

The project required a JJI mono pitched roof to create a modern and clean aesthetic. Pasquill was involved in the dwelling’s design from the very early stages and provided consultation on the detailing, metalwork and further design considerations where required.
