The idea of ​​this project is to build a building low energy or passive using a maximum of natural materials. Straw has therefore imposed any naturally because it is available near the site is a very good insulator and support
coating of choice. The self-construction is also naturally imposed. It is a great satisfaction for teachers Material to say they built them-own homes. It’s also a very good method to limit the budget for construction. The first winter in the house confirmed the very good thermal performance of the building. This is 3-4 cubic meters of wood that has been consumed. In future consumption is expected to fall to 2 cubic meters with installing a wood more efficient heater.
