Hosted by KennyAsk a question
While Sile and I call Brooklyn our primary residence, Sile was born and raised in County Wicklow, Ireland. Numerous trips 'home' demanded we find a 'derelict cottage' for ourselves near the family. The 'Tiger' arrived and prices skyrocketed around Dublin and into Co. Wicklow . Dejected, we went to visit friends in West Cork for a weekend.
Why Kenny chose Derry
A Saturday morning drive brought us to the site on which Derry Hill sits today. Needless to say we impulsively purchased the land the day after we saw it in 1998. By 2001 the house, designed by my brother who is a builder here in the states, was constructed but unfinished. In the summer of 2001 my two brothers and brother-in-law, and his brother arrived with partners and family to partake in a work/vacation holiday. It was hugely successful as wide pitch pine boards were laid, doors hung, trim ('architrive') nailed, garage deck constructed, and a kitchen installed.
What makes this House unique
The kitchen cabinets were designed and constructed by my brother in Connecticut and imported in a container to the site. We think the kitchen is the finest feature of the house while the wood flooring, with its wide, pitch-pine boards from Honduras, is a close second. The plan is open which allows plentiful light to fill the house. We hope you appreciate the finishing details which reflect the craftsmanship my brothers and extended crew brought to the job.
