Inspirational Homes Leitrim hopes to facilitate the sharing of experiences, knowledge and skills amongst anyone with an interest in making sustainable, the future of building in Ireland. We do this via our website www.inspirationalhomes.ie and the Green-Door Leitrim weekend, which is a unique opportunity to visit some of the buildings and homes featured on our website, this year it will be held from 14-16th September.

In the run up to and during the green-door weekend we will be running a series of ‘at home’ courses’ the aim of which is to complement the website by giving hands on training into some of the techniques and expertise featured in the builds.

Many of the courses will be held at one of the featured homes on the website and will employ the expertise of the people who worked on that house…in some cases the architect, in others the builders or suppliers. Courses include: ‘Wind, Sun and Rain- Living off grid’, ‘Building with Cob’ and go through to ‘Cooking from a straw-bale kitchen!’

Most of these courses are subsidised by Leitrim Development Company and, where applicable, the small charge is simply to cover the booking fee; however booking is essential. Please go to: www.inspirationalhomes.ie/courses.html or tel: 071 913 4847/087 778 1914 , email: info@inspirationalhomes.ie.
