The team met for five days to help improve this cultural space. Plaster hops spread from concrete mixers outside to the voids that run inside. “We wanted to help, because from the outside, we felt so much needed!” “In terms of energy, it was horrible, and something had to be done,” one participant expressed. “Next project,” declared Anna, coordinator of the Jean de la Fontaine association. It will be used to renovate the kitchen.
Five walls of insulation
Five walls spread over three rooms have been insulated in two different ways, with plaster and banshag. Stucco is the commonly used technique which consists of smoothing stucco on the surface of the wall by applying it from the bottom to the top. Banchas are more complex, we install wooden studs on stone walls in order to create and maintain a molding in which plaster is applied. The mixture is worked in a concrete mixer.
For Tony, the site manager, this is the first use of muskanth in his isolation recipe. “In the current context, we must aim to reduce the cost of materials. Miscanthus is used as litter on farms, we buy it directly, the process is very simple, and therefore we have very little carbon footprint.”
The next participatory work camp will be held in the Kdoret space in the last week of February. To register, contact Anna on the phone. 06 95 67 49 29 or [email protected]
Another participatory labor camp is scheduled for January 17-21, for the La Saga Association, in Trémargat.
