Wow, what an update! Congratulations on your new path. Sounds like it will be an exciting change. Your new place looks...um...well lived in. Please keep us updated on the progress. Looks like it will be a nice with a little spit and polish.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

The best of luck to you, James. That renovation is quite an endeavor.

Hope to find you on a Relais & Ch?teaux search some day!

That's an understatement! A bit more background of whats going on in France and the Chateau's that are there.

A lot of these place have fallen into MAJOR disrepair and France does not want to lose their Chateau's to demolition. Chateau's in France are listed in classes. Class 1 is the most restrictive as the French government has deemed them historical monuments and, just like in the U.S. when renovating a U.S. historical monument, you must follow government rules and DEMANDS in renovating. France is selling these at GREAT prices to those who are willing to restore them back to private residents. Meaning, France does not want them split up into apartments, turned into luxury hotels or converted to luxury meeting spaces.

Here is a link about another couple who bought a Class 1 Chateau that was in desperate need of repair, it was missing whole floors and ceilings, at least mine has all its floors and ceilings.

The restoration is going to be a tough and a VERY VERY long journey but I am SO EXCITED.
