We are Auriane and Joan. We live in the south of France, close to the Pyrénées. Auriane is a doctor in addictology and Joan is a mechanical engineer. We are starting to build our house using as much as possible locally and natural materials (wood for the structure, straw bale for insulation...)
DIY and building projects
We live in a small village (120 inhabitants), villagers are mainly farmers with cows. The neighborhood is very friendly. There are other constructions with straw bale in the village, if you are interested, you can visit them.
We are very close to the Pyrénées. If you like to hike or climb, there is plenty spots.
If you are a musician, you can use our guitar or our electric piano.
In June we are going to work on the basement of the house. Workawayers can help in putting in place the sheaths, the reinforcement mesh, the heated floor and the concrete.
During the summer (July and August) we are going to work on the traditional wood frame. Workawayers can help to draw lines on the wood, cut wood assembly (tenons, mortices), assembly the wood structure and paint the wood.
