Hello everybody,

The next national gathering of the French Straw Building Network - Les Compaillons - will be held in the north-west of France. 1-4 november. The gathering will be in French only (except for the presentation on loadbearing SB construction by Amazon Nails).

Below you find a translation of the planning for our gathering. Lots of talking on non technical issues to make sure the network continues to function and will move on in the directions that will be decided upon during the gathering. Presentations of different sb building techniques are scheduled for Friday afternoon and (Amazon Nails) Friday evening.

The gathering is held at JUBLAINS (12 km south east of Mayenne, between Rennes and Le Mans)
