History / other information
This project, for my brother and for myself, was particularly important to us because it is the village where we have "kept" the sheep regularly. This village is near the hamlet where the family farm was located.
This building was bought by our parents in the 1970s.
This rehabilitation was also a way of not abandoning this family heritage by contributing also to the dynamism of our common childhood.
Our project was to rehabilitate beautifully this house by preserving as much as possible the existing and local cachet to then rent it and / or use it also for our holidays.
Arlempdes is a hamlet of about twenty houses.
The river "La Loire" and the river "La Méjeanne" flow below.
It is a peaceful place where it is good to rest, or even for athletes indulge in walks (easy access or difficult trails depending on your choice) to discover the different landscapes or go fishing.
The surroundings are meadows and forests that extend in a ravine landscape.

For this rehabilitation, we realized this construction:
In a spirit of limiting our environmental footprint
a) Mastery of the original stamp
- Maximum conservation of the original architecture of this building for a perfect integration into its environment and its site,
- Interior walls apparent in stone on some faces, and re-construction in visible stones,
- Conservation of ancestral methods (for example for jointing stone facades, local round tiles ...),
b) Control of energy consumption
- Old-fashioned fireplace that pre-heats the building and cooks 4 gas burners,
- "White" materials with a 50% mini A energy label,
c) Control of water consumption
- Choice of positioning 2 showers in Italian (to privilege in front of a bathtub) => reduced water consumption,
- WC with double maximum flow 3 and 6 liters,
d) Control of waste by selective sorting
- A composting area is available,
e) Mastery of the quality and provenance of the materials used + Local craftsmanship
- Maximum use of local and healthy raw materials: Local wood species for carpentry, floors and roofing (supplied wood from our forests), local stones (including added stones),
- Sound insulation has been taken into account by a double skin with an intermediate insulation between floors,
- water paints,
- Support of the local craft industry: mason, carpenter, plumber, heating engineer, plasterer, painter, electrician, tiler, ...,
f) Control of nuisances
- No noise nuisance:
. Very quiet village,
. Insulation set up,
- No visual nuisance:
. Integration of the TV antenna inside (at the level of the attic),
. Integration of elements under a worktop (Washing machine, Dishwasher, Storage units)
2) In a spirit of being able to welcome people with disabilities (visual, auditory, mental)
Label "Tourism and Visual, Mental and Auditory Disability".
