It's a beautiful island in all the photos, which are undoubtedly in summertime. Notably, however, there are no visible trees so this island is very likely inside the Arctic circle. If a trained builder of rocket mass heaters were to move there, and a suitable fuel source is actually available in this region of Ireland, that builder would have access to a large portion of Ireland in order to offer his/her professional services; as the island is only 3 miles from the Irish "mainland", 5 miles from an airport and connected by a daily ferry.
Since it's only 3 miles from shore, why did it take so long for the island to get a broadband internet service?

I wish to strongly encourage hugelkultur beds to be at least six feet tall. Preferentially 7 feet tall or taller.
I wish to strongly encourage hugelkultur beds to have very steep sides. 75 degrees to 80 degrees.
I wish to strongly encourage hugelkultur beds to be at least 20 feet long.
I wish to strongly encourage wood + soil + wood + soil + wood + soil + wood + soil + mulch. I see too much of wood-on-wood - and I wish to discourage that.
I wish to discourage the use of "nails" in hugelkultur. The stick ends up wicking water out of the hugelkultur.
I think the video is fun - but there are a lot of things in it that I wish they expressed differently.
