Crumby old shit damp cottage that must cost a fortune in carbon to heat or nice energy efficient eco house?

It appears Bill Dale is rather selective on what 'eco' means, when it comes down to a house he used to live in.

No one, not even people in Dalby know what house he is on about, but he used to live there so it is the most noticeable and important landmark in Dalby...

The proposed house looks much nicer, and built from wood, totally eco and cool, I have a problem with idiots generally.

Bollocks. Show me a house constructed of timber that looks nicer than a Manx cottage.

 Assuming you are Manx, that is.

i think Bill posted pictures of the houses and it is obvious to anyone with eyes which one is nicer.

He's wrong on this. Knock it down and put something contemporary there.

Typical hypocrisy from the liberal left.

Rip down the eyesore and build a modern eco replacement.

Link someone, please?

I saw it on the Manx nostalgia fb page.

The thing with these old stone houses is that no one lives in the way they they did when they were built. They are outdated. Id be surprised if there was anything special about this one. They aren't architectural wonders, they've been thrown up with stone and rubble and are held together by the render. You could argue that some are worth saving but seriously its easier and much more sensible to knock em down and start again. And I say that as someone who does a lot of work restoring or renovating old houses.

Bill  has posted a pic of the proposed development

It will have a great vista - the view from there is one of the best on the island, if not the best

It's a very exposed position tho'

How robust are those window corner things?

What a hideous thing. Now that really IS a blot on the landscape.

There are loads of these types of buildings on Mann. But they are cleverly hidden amongst small copses or densely wooded areas with a sea vista. There are about 5-6 on Head Rd, Baldrine. So building the above would not be setting a precedent.
