Hello and welcome to the Applesteam Dream

This blog is to chart the journey to our dream life in the beautiful countryside in Northern Ireland.

We have decided to build a new life along more ecological lines. The plan for the house will be developing over the next few years as we plan our future. The House itself we plan to build from straw bales with a timber framing. Once up and rendered, the straw forms an amazingly good insulation against heat in the summer and cold in the winter.

We also intend to generate as much of our own heating and electricity as possible, getting as close to carbon neutral as possible, hopefully we will become negative carbon, generating enough power to sell on.

We hope you’ll join us on our journey over the next few years as it develops.

Ric & Richard xx
