Underground new build in Fermanagh

For Paul and Anne Dyer, building in a conservation area meant going underground and partnering up with the Ulster Wildlife Trust to plant their roof.

How did the project come about?

We were living in England and wanted to move closer to Anne’s mother who was then living in Sligo. The house we bought was being run as a B&B, and we carried on with that.
