Timber-Framed Kit Houses

WORK has started on a factory to make timber-framed kit houses on the industrial site in Stranraer.

And local businessmen Alex Sloan and Derek Robison are confident that within three years they will be employing between 25 and 30 people.

Galloway Timbers as the company will be known, will start production in about two months’ time, employing eight people including the two partners.

Plans for the new business were first revealed in the "Free Press" in December.

Since then the former Galscot factory has been stripped to its metal frame and work is now underway to get it ready for an official opening some time in August.

One of the company’s kit houses has just been completed on a new site at Leswalt.

A local architect has put together a portfolio of 12 different house types although once the project gets underway, people will be able to stipulate an internal layout to suit their own wishes.
