Saint Malo Mini Maker Faire

This post is coming to you live from the Saint Malo Mini-Maker Faire—the first Maker Faire in France—being held at the IUT de Saint-Malo here this weekend.

Almost the first thing you see when you walk in the door here at the Saint Malo mini-Maker Faire, is a small wooden house, tucked away at the end of the table where you can learn to solder.

John Lejeune—who runs the fabrication laboratory at EESAB in Rennes—is a maker that’s done what I would have thought impossible. He has built an open source house.

Built entirely using local artisans, the house gained a coveted energy efficiency award qualifying it as a passive house—or “blow in-door” if you translate the French literally. You will soon be able to download all the plans for the house, which will be released under an open source license.

In the past he has mesh networked the Moscone Center, caused a U.S. Senate hearing, and contributed to the detection of what was—at the time—the most distant object yet discovered.
