Cedar Developments

With the help of:

Eastcliffe Resource

Industrial Centre


Manx Cottage

When the Cedar Developments team suggested

Honor’s Big Build to the Eastcliffe Resource Industrial

Centre - a workshop for adults with learning

disabilities – they were thrilled to take part.

Being very keen to recycle aluminium and wood

products, the group decided to build a scaled down

version of a traditional Manx Cottage – the thatched

roof cottage associated with the Isle of Man.

The Cedar Developments project team provided

materials the centre could reuse from the site,

including plywood from the old building that was

used to create a frame to hold the cottage together.

The cottage will be used in the Adult Resources’ new

garden centre and learning facilities, as a chicken

shelter when the birds are out of their coop. Because

of this, the team had to design a removable roof for

easy access and cleaning.
