The case study  reports Elaine Kelly’s experience in the SERVE project as inhabitant of the eco village Cloughjordan, County Tipperary, Ireland. She lives in “The Village” in a two storey passive design house with her husband and two children. The house was constructed by Scandinavian Homes Limited and is a Swedish pre-manufactured timber framed passive house. Elaine’s main motivation to move to the eco village has been a need to be part of an inclusive and safe community where her family could interact and contribute to a viable neighbourhood.
