New House Builds

New House Build - Garelochead

Design & Build

Macfarlane (Helensburgh) Limited have been building new homes since the 1970s and have seen many changes in architecture, design and in the materials used in construction.

Traditional Scottish homes were built using stone, brick and block. Now in the 21st Century, timber kit houses have become popular in Scotland with the choice of various outer skin (exterior) finishes.

Every building plot is different from the one before and nothing should be taken for granted when approaching the subject of building a new house. From access to the plot to the availability and connection of services, every plot proposes different challenges for the new home builder.

Macfarlane (Helensburgh) Limited have the necessary skills and experience to meet these challenges.

We employ architects and engineers with local knowledge to produce the initial designs. This initial step is essential for clients when allowing for budgets and helps avoid surprises with regards to cost control. We will produce clear time-frames and a programme for all to works.

With so many aspects to consider and all the costs involved in building your new home, including the services, fees, planning consent, building warrants and more, Macfarlane (Helensburgh) Limited can help.

“We’ll be with you from the planning through to the final brick, ensuring that any new home constructed by Macfarlanes far exceeds your expectations.” Mark Capon, Managing Director.


"We moved into our new home, built by Macfarlane (Helensburgh) Limited in May 2011. The service we received from Mark and his team was very impressive from start to finish. We were surprised at first by the great customer service provided by Mark, but as we got to know him throughout the build, we realised that this is a unique selling point that he has and always puts the customer first. We made some significant changes to the original plans for the property and Mark and his team went out of their way to understand what we wanted and accommodate these into the build (from revising the original plans, to obtaining planning permission). In fact they accommodated all of the changes we requested as best as possible (this included things such as upgrading the bathroom suite and doors to the kitchen layout) and where they felt things would not work, they provided constructive advice, which was really helpful. The original time-scales provided for the build were met as promised, which we were also really pleased with. Since we have moved in, we have had a few minor issues (nothing serious) and Mark and his team have dealt with these very quickly, in fact we are again surprised with the personal touch that Mark continues to give to us, even though we moved in 8 months ago! Mark has agreed to come back in May 2012 to do another check of the property and repair any issues that have arisen as the house settles in – this gives us great comfort.

We were both really excited about our new home being built and whilst this can be a stressful time for all involved, we can both say that Mark and his team certainly made this as much of a stress free period as possible for us and I would not hesitate to recommend Macfarlane (Helensburgh) Limited to anyone, not only for the service, but the unique homes that they build.
