ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

That's interesting, because the Irish building regs are already a lot tighter than UK building regs when it comes to energy usage. It's one reason that there are more low energy house build companies in Ireland than there are here (and why we had to use an Irish company in order to get an affordable low energy build).

The economy is picking up and many builders wish for a return to the 'old days' and don't want to be hampered by having to do things properly.
