The house is ‘open-source’ with all the drawings, step by step instructions and construction photographs given free on the IrishVernacular.com website.

Stevens gives a few tips on building such a house; the first of which is:

I would be happy to work with you to design and build a house using these principles, if you’re interested in building in this way, without a massive mortgage then CONTACT ME…

nb We are not related and rumours that we named our 4th child after Dominic are completely unfounded (they’re spelt completely differently anyway) 😉
