It is my opinion that Irish cottages and their design have been formulated by norwegian, and north european influences early in our history..
it would be great to see a research linked graph of change V acknowledge design standards to pinpoint the year that the cottage became "Vernacular" ... and why as a country are we trying to echo this "date" by introducing such things as cross bar windows with bungalow bliss type structures ?
Dates & Facts may prove that our home grown architectural vernacular isnt ours at all!..
why has our definition of Vernacular not altered and when was the term introduced as a means of judging precedent ? ...big questions , big answers, honesty about our architectural history will show a pattern of repetative structures and the discouragement of change ... not something to be promoted
