sc house - Co. Wexford

This two story dwelling was constructed in timberpost and beam with strawbale infill.
The round shape was chosen to minimise wind resistance. A heat recover ventilation system (HRV)was also installed.
Solar panles and a solid wood stove help to achive a high BER energy rating.
The build was started in May 2008 and was completed in March 2009 plenty of photos below.
