More about this Straw Bale House

The carpenter’s favorite, this ruined barn became his home. After a year and a half of work, a house of 80m² appeared! We have cut and raised our douglas roofing framework, with a load-bearing half-timbering. The whole south side of the barn having collapsed, we replaced it with a wooden frame, with large chestnut windows. One end of the wall to the west is made of straw. The roof is made of sawn larch shingles; the lean-to is covered with a green roof. The entire south facade is clad with thermo-oiled Douglas fir; the rest of the stone barn has been reworked with lime plaster. A lot of work has been done on the airtightness and insulation, in cellulose wadding and wood fibres. All the interior plastering was done with earth.
