Timber Framing – A Natural Way to Build.

Here Denis explains how his love for life and desire to learn took his younger self across an ocean and continent to discover timber framing. Now back in France after his three decade sojourn he talks about the fruits of his life-long labour of love.

Here are some photos of the beautiful structure Denis talks about.


Denis’ Straw bale house with 2 Queen’s trusses featuring on the terrace extension.

Another longer interview where we cover some of the same subject matter focusing a bit more on Denis’ personal voyage.

Enjoy the journey.

Peace, Joe
