50 hour house

Posted in houses

On Gairn terrace, Aberdeen there is a nice, simple semi-detached house which has a blue plaque on the front. I’d never noticed it before, despite living round the corner for a good few years as a student.

The plaque states that this particular building was the first built in Aberdeen in under 50 hours. Quite some feat. I’ve had a look on the Internet and can’t find anything on this house but I’d live to know a bit more about it.

Call me a building geek but I’d love to hear from anyone with any information about who built it or the technology used.
