About us

20 years’ experience, and a continuing passion for mountain landscapes and constructing in wood.
In 1996, Jean Philippe Ponchaud founded AlpenBois, a company dedicated to wooden buildings and joinery. Run today by Charles REUGE, AlpenBois maintains the same objectives while adding new dimensions. Both for quality-conscious commercial clients and for individuals seeking excellence, we continue the development of techniques which combine harmony, tradition and innovation.

Half-timbered chalets, chalets built with old recovered wood, small apartment buildings, industrial buildings: garages, fire stations, etc.

Apart from differences in style or size, all our projects display the same values: strength, durability and authenticity.
Values which, for us, are engraved in the fibre, in the very vein of the wood and which we will be pleased to share with you.

By choice, resolutely, we only undertake projects which we know we will be able to complete respecting the rules of the art.
And we don’t participate in the race for ever-higher turnover.

Quality is a demanding choice for which, on your behalf, we take full responsibility.
