An old, healthy and modernized house
Our house was built in 1903 with all the common sense of old character houses. The modern concepts of bioclimatic houses seem to have been respected!
- North façade buried for freshness in summer and mild winter.
- South-facing windows protected by the advance of the roof in the summer and well exposed in winter when the sun is lower.
- Trees leafy on the sun side and persistent on the west side.
In the 1960s, the “cave” was converted into a living room and kitchen, accessible by a small dark staircase that was quickly refreshed!
During our countless renovations from 2014 to 2018, we tried to respect the structure of the house and its strong personality. A huge work of insulation from the inside was carried out (windows, doors, roof, walls) with a maximum of biological materials (wood fiber, aluminum, wood). 30 photovoltaic panels replaced the roof tiles. Rozan’s cottage, built in 1903, has become a positive energy house in 2018.
Creation of the Cottage de Rozan cottage
Why and how to decide to dedicate part of the house to welcoming travelers?
As a city dwellers in an apartment, we have always designed the house as a place of welcome and sharing, open to passing travellers. Why occupy 1300m2 of surface and a big house just for us? Happiness is only worth it if it is shared! And this house gives us a lot, from the sunrise over the Belledonne massif to the sunset over the Vercors, a wonderful garden, a view that we still never tire of, planchas on the terrace and swimming in the clear water. Wouldn’t it be a shame to keep it all to yourself? T
herefore, any project of this magnitude requires an economic and ecological balance for it to be sustainable. The revenues generated by the cottage and the photovoltaic panels contribute to financing and carbon offsetting.
Celine and Denis
We have been living in Grenoble since 2014 and it’s not for nothing! Fans of mountain, nature and know how to live, we want the chalet of Rozan to live in the sandstone of the seasons and its occupants. For us, ecology is concrete and we intend to help put man back in nature. 97% of our visitors seemed so far convinced and of this we are satisfied.
