Bonjour,

I’m new here, and new to building with light straw/clay.
I did build a tiny house from wood but am looking to build something a bit bigger next year.
Wood construction with light straw infil.
I’m planning to do this on my 20 acre woodland farm in France, most of it I will do myself.
Only a few more papers to fill out before I get the counsils green light.
Hoping to learn loads from this website and you all reading this

The plan is, a simple wood frame construction on pier foundation.
light clay straw infill, reclaimed doors and windows and a bac assier roof (metal)
it will be an off grid project, so solar panels and windmills and rainwater collection.
I wanted to add a picture by my internet is off grid too... :)
