Miracle Elizabeth

Favorite phrase of this 65-year-old woman: “if i can do it, you can!“. Elisabeth’s house is located in Lusignac, in the Dordogne, and for nine years the retired architect has been building his house step by step in the shape of the letter A! In the report, she explains that she should not be afraid of work, because this construction still required a lot of effort from her over two years, and short nights … But, she also claims that she loved every second of this construction. … With a budget of only 35,000 euros, she would never be able to afford a traditional home… The result is clear and, as Elizabeth says, “everyone deserves to have a home, she built it with her own hands!

With a frankness that can only seduce, Elizabeth is as natural and raw as her universe! And, of course, the lessons of this woman with a big heart are available for free. Frame houses, also known as “teepee houses”. existed for centuries; in the Alps they are also called chalets, and in the Auvergne they are called burons. Some are sold for millions of euros, while at the start €15,000 was enough for their construction. Elizabeth will not trade it, as her goal was simply to provide herself with a roof over her head. Now she shares her knowledge with anyone who finds it useful!
