The Passage Tomb of Knowth Guides Hut.

A building wholly constructed from sustainable materials.

The building is completely constructed from Irish grown timber, predominately Spruce and Larch. All structural timber is strength specified. External cladding is ship lath Larch from Caoilte forest in Co. Kilkenny. The roof is finished with cedar shingles. The windows and external door are made from Irish spruce.

The shape of this building meant that the joinery work in this building is of the highest standards. All the timber inside and outside is exposed, so we had to work very closely with our tradesmen to ensure the highest quality finish possible was achieved.

Main Features.

  • All insulation in the floor and walls is sheep wool from Scotland.
  • The heat is provided by a heat pump, hot water is from solar panels.
  • The water is sourced from a deep well adjacent to the site.
  • This building was also sealed using pro-clima tapes and membranes.
