Hello all

My name is Eldon, I am member of a planned ecovillage project called Dún Dúlra. Our group aspires to repurpose a derelict holiday home complex on the shores of Lough Key, Co Roscommon, Ireland, and transform it into a thriving ecovillage community.

We are buying the site with a view to applying for planning permission and converting the existing holiday cottages to permanent residences. The hope would be to use natural building methods and materials sourced from the site as much as possible.

One of the questions we have is if it is feasible to even consider the renovation of the holiday homes or would we be better off applying for planning permission for newly built eco homes and then look at renovating the cottages back to a Summer use standard.

Thanks for any advice
