A school in Londonderry is celebrating a Northern Ireland first with the opening of a trendsetting log cabin schoolhouse.

The eco-friendly timber cabin at Drumahoe Primary School is the first of its kind anywhere in the UK to be granted full building control and planning approval.

The new schoolhouse is a bespoke design, three-room log cabin with the capacity to house 24 children. The keys were handed to school principal Terry McMaster by Beaver Log Cabins after a total build time of just two weeks.

Mr McMaster said the building solved a problematic capacity issue at a fraction of the cost and time required to construct a new modular building.

And Trevor Watson of Beaver Log Cabins said the new Drumahoe PS schoolhouse was the first of many such projects for his company.
