Rural Suffolk bothy

A marvellous case study from Bothy Stores focuses on a couple's new shelter in rural Suffolk, replacing a derelict shed in their own managed woodland. Features include Corten steel cladding, and ground-screw foundations to reduce environmental impact. Although it has cabling and plumbing, at the moment it's entirely off-grid.

According to the new owners: "We positioned the windows very carefully to exploit the different outlooks, adding a really large opening in one elevation that frames a view through the nearby chestnut trees. Some of the windows have views where the trees give a real sense of enclosure and intimacy, while others look out towards the open countryside. It feels like an honest fit for this rugged, outdoor working environment."
