I think only subject to constraints such as maximum size (40sq m?), size compared to existing dwelling and size of garden leftover - none of which it looks like these works would satisfy

5000 new Facebook jobs coming to Dublin, should be a cause for celebration but this thread was my first thought...

WTF is the government thinking? New builds are still miles below basic maintenance level, how bad will it have to get?

More taxes, bigger public servant pay increases and increased rents for their rental properties is prob what they are thinking.

Check it out on the satellite imagery if the above link doesn't show it, they've enclosed the entire rear garden in and somehow made 9 separate units out of the place - I'd say they're nightmare neighbours.

How they think that an illegal development in the back garden has almost tripled the value of the house though! And sad that the €70k in rent per annum figure is probably correct!
This place was up for sale for €1.5M back in 2008!

Don't know if it sold though. Owner tired of hoovering up 70k rent per year??

What do you mean, what were the government thinking? The government can't tell Facebook to stop hiring people.

Not funny but significant as it once belonged to Ireland's oldest man, close to where I grew up. A real time capsule and full of character

Interesting "features"

Quote:
Other Features

No water supply. Previous owners probably used rainwater
No septic tank. Planning will be required
No central heating
No bathroom or toilet
Neighbour nearby
Reasonably good quality land with great views from hill
BER exempt
Just a single neighbour, unless you like solitude it could get very lonely if you fall out with them.

Some of those pictures look like an Art installation or photography project. There's something kind of sparse and beautiful about it all.
