    Allo ! Hello ! Hola !

    The family is looking for help on an ecological strawbale house

    You would like to get knowledge on how to construct a healthy house with natural material ? You would like to learn how to plan, organize, get into action to build your ecological dream house ? We made it all by ourselves and it will be a pleasure to share our path.

    From may to sept- october 2019

    Bring on your curiosity and happiness, we will give you good food, tools and an unforgettable experience. No need to be Bob the builder, just a pair of spirited arms. Charming place to camp, with exterior shower, electricity... with national parks arround : Parc des Grands-Jardins, Parc des Hautes-Gorges

    We are a family with 2 kids + 1 on the way (sept) : Adèle-Soleil, 3 yrs et Théo 5 yrs who are involved in the construction :) . It's a part of our philosophy of being a family to share time and love during the great adventure of creating our home. We now live in our house (since april 2019). When it's possible, we love to eat over fire, put our hand into the earth and go to the beach.


    The construction écologique
    Vous songez à vous bâtir une maison saine avec des matériaux naturels? Vous souhaitez approfondir vos connaissances sur la construction d’un milieu de vie écologique, solidaire et créatif? Et surtout vous envie d’aider une jeune famille à réaliser sa maison de rêve?
    Alors apportez votre curiosité et votre bonne humeur, on fournit la bouffe, les outils (et équipements de sécurité) et une expérience inoubliable.

    Par besoin de talents spectaculaires, juste une bonne paire de bras et de l’entrain.

    Ce sera un plaisir de vous accueillir, de partager nos savoirs, nos forces, nos énergies et l’histoire de notre future demeure.
