Since Kyoto protocol and agenda 21 main directives , France has now to divide by 4 its greenhouse gas emission, before 2050. For that purpose, the method " bilan carbone" ® has been developed by J.M Jancovici ,  and French national agency for environment ADEME . Firstly it allows the quantification of greenhouse emission of any private or public company whatever the field of activity and secondly it gives some indications to help the emission reduction. The method is starting to be distributed among the academic world for sensitizing the students and for applying carbon assessment to university activities. We present here an original and pedagogical application to a true building materials small scale 1/20 house design . After model parameters definition and extraction, carbon assessment is discussed. Finally, we suggest the transfer of this study towards the education field as an example of sustainable development teaching in an engineer school.
