We want to construct eco housing and guest accomodation that has a minimal waste generation and resource consumption. The designs are centred around zero carbon buildings, using sustainable building techniques and locally sourced materials that connect us to nature. This will not only be cost effective but it is an immediate response to adapting to climate change.
The eco houses will look out onto shared crop gardens which will help feed the whole community. These crop gardens will also give people practical skills of growing their own food as well as nurturing a community spirit.
Our ecological techniques include -
- The use of Solar features where possible throughout the grounds,
- Super efficient insulation, including triple glazing, roofing made from natural materials, for walls and floors,
- Water conservation, (collection of rainwater for recycling and farming and gardening use),
- The use of non toxic materials, locally sourced and harvested timber from wood preservatives throughout,
- Local stone for patios, pathways and roads,
- Constructions are easily and fast assembled using minimum equipment and labour.
Our goal is to create high quality eco houses without compromising the modern comforts, situated in the serene beauty of the Irish countryside.
