Erm, not sure what you mean - 'what should I use to design the wall'? A pencil? A computer - you decide how you want to draw your sections. If you mean how should I construct the walls out of? Blockwork? Timber Frame? RC? You choose. You want to clad it in timber, so you can make the structure in whatever you want. Bear in mind a traditional bothy is in stone. If you make the loadbearing structure in blockwork then at least you are attaining some thermal mass inside, if you are going to clad it in timber (with obviously insulation between the cavity and the loadbearing structure).
hi thanks a lot for the answer. i have sorted out the wall. now im stuck in the roof. the bothy is only 3m x 3m. the walls are stucco on both sides and concrete and fiber glass batt in the middle. question is what are the essential layers a roof should have? because im trying to make the wall as thin as possible.
