Art of living in a Dordogne’s tiny mud home with living roof

In a small forest in France’s Dordogne, self-taught carpenter Menthé built his home with a living roof and mud walls, plus handcarved wood from the surrounding forest shaped according to ideas from 16th century French architect Philibert de l’Orme. The result is a charming and very cozy home that fits perfectly into the woodland.
