    1. Hello Wheezy88, welcome aboard and thank you or a great contribution to our list! We’re always on the lookout for any properties that we might have missed. Thank you once again and we hope you find the site both useful and informative.

  1. Hello Dewar and thank you for your post.
    I have taken a look at Thornburn Crescent via Google Streetview but I cannot see any BISF (British Iron & Steel Federation) houses at this location. I can see various forms of non-traditional constructions but the list above refers only to BISF steel framed houses. At first glance, some of the houses in Thornburn Cres appear to be of concrete construction but it would require investigation to identify the exact type.

  2.  I have Just popped back into this forum to check on any responses from my first post, in relation to trying to find a similar set of house plans, only to realise that your list of BISF Properties for the Scotland area lacks my address.On Thorburn Crescent, Annan there are many numerous Semi-Detached BISF built properties, not only here, but in the immediate local area, there are hundreds…How do you actually update your database, a visit, confirmation via Google ?I hope this helps :-)

  3. I have become aware of a significant number of single storey bungalows in Baird Grove, Edinburgh and Kirkhill Road and Drive, Edinburgh. They appear to have been built by a Thomson& Rae or Rae & Co around 1926/7 and initial investigation shows a roughcast external leaf of 100mm approx. concrete, a wide cavity and plasterboard internal lining on 50×50 battens. Overall wall thickness matches a conventional cavity build.

    1. Hi Sam, I’m re replying to your comment because we appear to have lost some topic replies after a site update during the summer and for that I apologise.

      The Houses in Finavon Terrace aren’t actually BISF houses but from your excellent photograph above, they do appear to be timber framed.

      I am in total awe of the extremely wide variety of non-traditional construction types that have been built in Scotland, many of which appear to have been built in no other parts of the UK.
      I’m currently awaiting a response from Dundee Council for details of construction types used throughout Dundee and in particular, in Finavon, which should provide further information as to each construction type here as Finavon Terrace does appear to have several different build types.

      I hope to update you shortly.


  4. Many thanks Marc for adjusting – you are doing a fab job here with this website, much appreciated.

    Haven’t come across those maisonette style BISF houses yet – sounds interesting though.
    We had plans in converting ours into a 4 bedroom by turning the stair around, however it maybe a future project for now, as it’s a bit challenging to do that kind of project while still living with at least 4 people in the house.

    When looking at some of the photos , it looks as though , that the designs in England/ Wales are a little different from those here in Edinburgh.
    We insulated ours from the inside about 5 years ago and around 17 years ago it got it’s facelift outside – kind of liked the original facing , as it made it look more unique somehow.

  5. Hi

    As I am living in a BISF house in Edinburgh , had noticed that Fredrick Street was down as being in Edinburgh – when clicked on it, as know that Fredrick street in Edinburgh hasn’t got any BISF houses, it actually is in Dundee . Could you please adjust to avoid confusion?
    Also – sorry to be a bit of a stickler – why has Edinburgh got 2 ‘g’ s in it?
    There are other BISF houses in Edinburgh – Burdiehouse area – going to post, once checked out full address info.

    1. Hello IGLOO
      the warmest of welcomes to our community.

      Thank you for pointing out the Dundee Error, this has now been rectified along with the Edinburgh double G error which was caused by auto-insert on my input program. I’m aware of the houses in Burdiehouse as there has been a lot written about the area in various forums and I look forward to adding many more streets to the list once I get the time. As you can imagine, searching and verifying each street takes a great deal of time but solving a few of the site issues we have had with stability has sadly taken precedence just now.

      I Have always been fascinated by the maisonette style BISF Houses that were built around Scotland allowing for four families to live in each pair of dwellings, effectively splitting the houses into flats.

      Is this something that you are familiar with at all?
