Brace yourself. I made this video before the restoration began. It's fast and furious because when we bought the Château, our family and friends truly thought we were crazy. So I thought to myself, if I speed it up and twirl it around, they won't be able to really see all the work needed. And back then I also thought, no one will probably even watch it Oh, almost forgot, I credited the wrong music too. Misread the cd label. Hold on...It is what it is...
