I just saw that Shelter has a blog about builders who having fun building. I do that in France and sometimes elsewhere in the world, sometimes with my partner, sometimes by myself.

My partner and I restored an old bread oven in northern Drôme, France, that was damaged by the rain and exposure, extended it to make a small bedroom for a guesthouse. The idea was to create a room for lovers, close to the woods and far from the road. The special design with bottles is inspired from the wind and a feather because the guest house is called The Feather’s Inn. Most of the building materials were repurposed (tiles, bottles, door, wood), or found on site (earth, stones). The design is inspired by the local style of building with stones on the base and earth on the top, but adapted with a contemporary touch.
