The House Building Project

The House Building Project

The House Building Project located above the main car park is a valuable resource for students of Heritage, History, Geography, Architecture and Design.

The House Building Project

Built in 2003 as part of a series of Summer Traditional Skills Projects, it is a celebration of the variety of materials, tools and techniques used in the construction of traditional houses in Ireland.

The structure is biodegradable and is made from the sustainable, managed and renewable natural resources of wood, earth, stone and straw, locally produced, as was the case for many thousands of years in the vernacular dwellings of our ancestors.
