Bar à Bières Dussac - sauvez notre batiment !

This is Dussac.

It’s a small village, located in Dordogne-Périgord, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, in the southwest of France. It’s a quiet village full of kind, lovely people, and not so long ago, it was full of bars and cafes for those people to have a drink and a chat. Now, though, all of those places are gone…

Then, two years ago, we - a pair of Canadians, one music scholar and historian and one musician - moved to Dussac and opened the Bar à Bières Dussac. 

The bar was pretty small to start out, but we met brewers whose beer we loved, who loved that we were the only local craft beer bar in the region - and of course, the community loved having a place to meet for a drink. For the summer of 2017, we served the community happily and with pride. We made big plans for the future - to expand the bar space, host live music events, lectures on history and culture, art exhibitions, and make over our space into a cultural hub for the people of the area, and attract visitors to the Périgord Vert.

 

Now, though, we have a problem. The barn in which we built our beloved bar has a wall that is becoming more and more structurally unsound, which has made the roof unstable as well. Until we take down the wall, rebuild it, and replace the roof, the bar must remain closed.

 

There’s still hope… but we need your help. If you can contribute even a little bit to this campaign, every little bit of help will add up, and we can save the bar and work toward our future, together.

 

Phases of the project:

Phase 1: Jan/Feb 2019 - architect and engineer plans undertaken and finalised

Phase 2: Apr 2019 - work commences: scaffolding, removal of roof tiles, demolition of existing wall, rebuilding of new wall, and installation of new roof

Allocation of funds

Our personal bank account will collect the totality of these funds; we own the building as private individuals rather than through our company, so we will be paying for these renovations from our own pocket rather than the business account.

 

We will use these funds solely for the purposes of commissioning artisans to take down the unstable barn wall, build up a new wall, and redo the roof of the barn.  Based on estimates, the roof will cost 40 000€, and the wall 15 000€ to deconstruct and reconstruct.  This campaign will obviously not be able to pay for all of either the wall or the roof, but demonstrating support for this project could help us get additional crucial government support.
