A Hand Built French Palace (24 pics)

Posted in Arts » Design   23 Sep 2011   / 5837 views

This palace was hand built by postman Ferdinand Cheval. It took him 33 years to build and he calls it Palais ideal. It is a great reminder that a person can do anything with sufficient passion, effort, and time.

 

He began working on it in 1867 when he was 13 years old after tripping over a bazaar shaped stone and marveling at it. It was completed in the 1970’s. The palace is more than 30 feet (10 meters) high and 85 feet (26 meters) long.
