Historic French Chateau Bulldozed by Mistake

The Associated Press covered this sad story…

The mayor’s office in Yvrac said Wednesday that workers who were hired to renovate the grand 13,000-square-meter (140,000-square-foot) manor and raze a small building on the same estate in southwest France mixed them up.

“The Chateau de Bellevue was Yvrac’s pride and joy,” said former owner Juliette Marmie. “The whole village is in shock. How can this construction firm make such a mistake?”

It’s pretty simple how. The owner wasn’t around when they started working, according to the article. Would you let a contractor work on your home while out of town?
