Was happy to find additional photos showing the interior, etc. of this whimsy under construction: http://menthedesbois.blogspot.fr/

May you find the patience you need to make a smooth, seamless recovery of function.

Interesting details, saw more at

I admire the "boat" shape of the interior ceiling, as well as the expanse of windows over the cooking area. Nice.

Would love to see pics when it is done, if possible with English.

can I help ? here's some translation (trying...) from Yogan's blog

Re-used old framework
Floor : insulation with sheep wool (recovered mattresses)
Walls : clay and straw (cob ?) on wooden laths - inside : plaster + natural ochre
Roof : asphalt shingle (no more leaks)
