Explore Ireland while learning how to build your own dream home

The Exchange

The main house is 1hr from Dublin City Centre by car and cycling distance from the beach and the busy town of Gorey in Co Wexford. We have a relaxed approach to work, combining a teaching element to those who don’t have experience and want to learn. This project concentrates on finishing the external elements of the house. Looking for enthusiastic, motivated world-packers to complete our house build project, we'll teach all you need to know :)
