  • Description


    We are a young family with a 2 year old boy, I'm from Belgium and Matt is from Australia. We're building a straw bale house in the south of France. We aim to use natural or recycled materials only. At the moment we have finished the car tyre foundations, the wooden structure and the roof. The next step will be the straw bale wales, which we hope to finish before the winter of 2018.
