Jeffrey’s House is so named after Jeffry’s Loch over which it commands a view. A larch timber frame, thatched in flax, it is curiously familiar while being otherly and deliberately un-programmed. We intend Jeffry’s House as a respite from the elements, but also from the trials of effort and the everyday. It is a portal for the irreducible universe of the cosmic.
