Kevin McCormack and his partner Assumpta wanted to build one of the most eco-friendly and energy efficient house in the country. The project may have passed by completely out of the public's consciousness if it wasn't for Garrett Dempsey, who was so impressed by the couple's ambitious plans that he relayed them to the producers of RTE 1's "About The House" programme.

The Wexford couple knew nothing about it but were delighted to learn that RTE wanted to feature their dream home on Duncan Stewart's popular programme.

Kevin and Assumpta shopped for quality workmanship, competitive pricing and professional service. Dempsey's high spec insulation was a key component in Kevin's desire to achieve an A Rated Home.

Dempsey's not only produced the timber frame and the roof trusses for the unique eco-friendly house, but also erected them on site through our highly skilled team. Both the production process and the site erection had to be completed within a very tight timeframe to facilitate the recording of the TV programme. Kevin and Assumpta were delighted with the 'knowledge and expertise that Dempsey's contributed, to building their dream home'.
