Fool for France



Today my contractor Stuart and I went out to Poitiers to select the stone for the ground floor. This is it. It is called pierre de Bourgogne, which just means stone from Burgundy. My hope is that this mellow, muted tan will hide a multitude of dust bunnies and other debris. I’m not much of a housekeeper.

The top image is of the stone that will be used everywhere except the entry, where we will use the stone in the lower image.

It could be eight weeks until this stuff goes in. I am more impatient for this than you can possibly imagine.
