France is dominated by old stone houses, but in the last several years, building wooden houses has become a major trend, with books and magazines devoted to the subject. Many French builders look to North America for inspiration on building wooden homes, but two brothers in the South of France have built a business creating tropical-style houses on the Cap-Ferret shore...

The Bartherotte borthers build made-to-measure pine eco-houses using only natural materials that look exotic on the outside, but still very French on the inside, with a cozy French style.
