Let the Off-grid Fun Begin

 

This chic wooden lodge may appear to be an A-frame home at first glance, but it is not. The remote home is located in the Normandy town of Auvillier, France which is the perfect off-grid setting.  In fact, gas lamps are used as the main source. The wooden walls are enchanting and the overall decor is a mixture of contemporary and raw.

 

Technically not an A-Frame architecture because of the partial vertical exterior walls, this charming and elegant wooden country home sure makes an appearance of an A-Frame design, thanks to the curved profile of the front glazing. Designed and built by architect Jean-Baptiste Barache, it’s situated in the tiny Normandy town of Auvillier, France, among farming lands. The project was conceived as an experiment for off-the-grid living but became a practically year around home for the architect and his wife and a holiday spot for family and friends. The improvised A-frame sits on concrete piers, and is framed in Norway Spruce and clad with Red Cedar shingles on the outside and low cost particle boards inside. The lumber is mainly recycled and was collected from theater sets.
