    So, will she be pregnant by the end of this episode..?!

    (My wife developed this theory, besides the cagnascenti on this forum!)

    There was certainly some flirting going on when discussing niches in the wall…

    Wonder if her legs are hairy too.

    Hairy pits = Really hairy minge. Never good.

    Looks like ‘Uncle’ Kevin is losing his touch – no extras appearing half way through this week…

    Liked the house though.

    hairy women make me feel weird. But I am smooth as an eel, apart from where it matters.

    Looked cold inside, everyone had hats and jackets on.

    Reckon they’ll need a good summer to get any benefit over winter (walls still drying out!!)

    And a compost WC………nae chance 🙁

    Did like the house though and the concept. Great spot too. Wish I had bought a site in southern france in the 90’s 😛

    Spongebob, without ‘hippies’ you wouldn’t be posting on this forum. So go stand in the corner and think about that for a while.

    why spend all that money on glazing and not have a proper bog!
    Quite like it otherwise, (too many bad memories of early mtb events with portable bogs)

    So Dot, why is it that you think hippees are the reason that i post on this site?

    The other girl helping them would have definately had it.

    Dry toilets are still common in France, more appealing than the ski jump variety. They were common in towns in 60s Sweeden too.

    I thought the hippies were brilliant. The first GD in ages where I wasnt nauseated by w*nky bankers turning up on the job with spotless reflective vests and shiny hard hats to assess progress on the build, and smugness of going £300k over budget

    There is something very special about the process of building something by yourself for yourself. The more you do something that way the less likely you are to destroy whats left for everyone else. Living and working that way in France is an instant passport into their community. Good on them.

    Oh and hairy pits are a must in France, its the Law.

    PLEASE EXPLAIN; if for no other reason than to stop me imagining sitting at the top of a miniature ski jump, making a poo and watching it rolling down and flying off into the distance as it launches itself off the ramp under it’s own momentum…and what’s it supposed to fly into anyway?

    What mcmoonter said about building something yourself, maybe not the bit about pits though…

    I think he means this, you stand on the stripy bit feeling a bit like a ski jumper.

    I was imagining a full size communal ski jump where each morning all the village folk climbed to the top of slope, strapped on their ski’s, dropped theire pants, raced down the slope, then curled one out mid flight over the village dung heap.

    The problem with those squat and poo jobbies is that they’re not very conducive to having a decent mag read.

    It does make a pleasent change to see people actually building their own house.

    I do like how the “Hippie” was so dismissive about going 65k over his budget, where the hell does someone secure that kind of money on a house made from old tyres and dirt.

    I’m thinking they may be hippy/eco warrior kinda people with a nice nest egg laid down by wealthy relatives who made all their money out of heavy industry, hence the “we must live an ecologicaly friendly lifestyle” to make up for what our loaded parents/grandparents did.

    Nice house in the end though, can you even imagine how much a bespoke oak kitchen of that size would cost, let alone how much they spent on the interior!!

    Round bed = hippie sh@g fest/love in/orgy times en france 😆

    IIRC his total build cost was £135K, some people think thats about right for a car and a kitchen.
    I can’t stand all that niche/ candle stuff, but I thought they built a slightly quirky, pretty well thought house – and earth shelters have been around for a couple of decades, I just wasn’t entirely convinced by things like the roof falls and some of the roof/ guttering details. Even the bottle wall looked pretty good – although like all these things until you go and actually experience the space all you get is an impression of what it is.

    the most brilliant thing about that couple was that they not only got the main build labour for free, but that they also convinced these people to pay them for the pleasure of working on the house.
