After the VERY late arrival of summer here in Ireland – our cottage has been truly weather tested
Readers may remember the nightmare we had with the leaking gable
and the subsequent hopeful cure, where render was applied
I am delighted to report that from floor to ceiling – the cottage is now as dry as a bone
A great weekend on the subject of natural building coming soon (25th – 26th July) at Caravantasia in County Tipperary.
LOTS going on – check out the details here:
Modern Builds Traditional Skills programme
I shall be speaking about how exactly we got
from here –
– to here
As far as I know there are still a few places available
I look forward to share happy memories with the good folk there

I so love looking at those Before/After pics of the Thresher – so much work and such a stunning result. I think that it would make a very useful book, esp in these days of cheap desktop printing byut even for arm chair builders it would a pleasure to look through.
A wonderful project. Date: Mon, 6 Jul 2015 14:33:21 +0000 To: email@example.com
Thanks for the tour of your cottage, Louise! A truly wonderful experience to see your beautiful cottag, the air smelt so healthy inside! What an achievement!
Neeru – so nice to meet you and share the joys of natural building with you and Jason. Hope to see you again soon.
This is great yo see Louise.We’re doing a similar project not far from you in Rossnowlagh and can only hope it turns out as well as this, would love to get in contact with you for a few pointers or perhaps meet up in Donegal town for a cup of tea
Hi Jude glad to hear you are the custodians of a traditional build. Drop me a line anytime – you may like to visit the limewindow cottage.
Thanks Louise.I’m currently trying to decide on pointing with lime or lime plastering my exterior, obviously I would prefer pointing for the look but thinking the plaster will be more weatherproof.Perhaps you could email me your thoughts and I can give you more details
