Hi, Danielle and I (Gilles) are currently building a straw bale house on a charming little hill surrounded by oak trees near Albi (Tarn, 80 km east of Toulouse).
We have recently completed inserting straw bales inside the timberwork and we are now tackling the plastering of the walls.

We need help to plaster the interior walls with clay, before we can work on the interior of the house (electricity, floor, etc.).
Every bit of help is welcome and no particular skills are required, just curiosity, the desire to be part of a construction with natural materials and learn some techniques along the way. Besides, clay is very pleasant and “sensual” to handle!
Both of us being teachers and passionate about our project, we are eager to communicate about it, the choices we made… and issues we had to deal with! So of course, anyone with an eco-construction project will definitely acquire some theoretical knowledge and practical skills by spending some time working with us on our house!

We need help for 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
We provide ingredients for every meal (veggie or not according to each person’s personal needs) and, according to her availability, Danielle cooks a few fine meals for everyone from time to time!

There are 2 beds in a secondary little house we have already built, + plenty of room on our site for tents!
