MAISON PIERROZ, Your trusted partner for the construction and renovation of wooden chalets.
Mountains, fireplace, wood… Symbols that bring back distant memories of winters spent huddled up by the fireplace contemplating snowy landscapes and surrounded by loved ones. There is no better place to share time with others, unwind and revitalise oneself than your very own mountain chalet…
For over 30 years, Maison Pierroz has been working on the creation and renovation of your chalets with an unwavering commitment to the values of traditional craftsmanship. Located at the very heart of the Savoie in the Beaufortain valley, the mountain is our heritage. Our know-how has been passed down from generation to generation as well as our passion for materials and wood of course.
Having started off as joiners and carpenters, we renovate the chalets of yesteryear and construct those of the future. Blending your ideas and our expertise to create together the chalet you have always dreamed of is our vocation. Today, Maison Pierroz builds more than 10 new chalets per year. Let us design together the project you hold close to heart.
Yves Pierroz created the family joinery business in 1988 at Arêches Beaufort. The arrival of Gilles Pierroz a few years later bolstered the company’s framing know-how.
In just a few years’ time, Maison Pierroz became a renowned expert in the renovation and restoration of old buildings, barns and chalets of yesteryear and developed extensive know-how regarding the local heritage.
Maison Pierroz is now also a leading company in the construction of new chalets.
STRUCTURE & FRAME
We are specialised in the laying of roofing on wooden chalets and would like to draw your attention to the use of wood shakes and traditional lined corrugated roofing sheets, with log snowguards and forged iron hooks in keeping with the local tradition.

We establish close working relations with our customers and guarantee the provision of a full service.
We also help our customers prepare for their administrative procedures. Wood has excellent natural insulation properties, and our chalets comply with all current energy regulations (RT 2012).

From the very creation of our company, we have worked on building up a network of businesses and craftspeople who share the passion with which we tackle each project.
All our partners are fully committed to complying with the technical specifications of the project and our customers’ requirements, while remaining relentlessly proactive and doing their utmost to ascertain smooth and efficient project management. The members of our teams know each other well which facilitates their day-to-day work and is of vital importance when it comes to solving unpredicted issues that occur during projects of this kind. This cohesion and the role of conductor played by Maison Pierroz is a further guarantee of peace of mind for our customers.
LIFE IN A WOODEN CHALET
COMFORT FROM ALL STANDPOINTS
Contrary to preconceived ideas, wooden chalets are suited to all geographical areas. They provide protection from the cold as well as during heat waves. As there are no thermal bridges, wooden houses are much better insulated than those built using conventional masonry techniques which have 30% heat loss.
Wood has exceptional natural acoustic qualities, and the fact that musical instruments have been made with this material for thousands of years bears witness to this. Inside a wooden home you will have the feeling of being sheltered from the noise produced by the outside world.
Thanks to humidity levels being regulated throughout the year, the air inside a wooden home is much healthier than in homes made with other building materials. Wood even enables to improve the state of health of people suffering from allergies or respiratory problems.
Apart from all the technical and ethical aspects, a wooden house enables you to reduce running costs by up to 20% compared to a house built using conventional masonry techniques.
Scrupulous selection to ascertain overall harmony
Maison Pierroz scrupulously selects timber based on origins while prioritising short supply chains in the case of new-growth wood, and quality & environmental concerns for old-growth wood. Our ambition is to remain faithful to your vision and the character of your project.
The selection of choice materials is an integral part of the “Pierroz signature” inherent to our mountain chalets.
