If he'd hired Irish builders this wouldn't have happened...


...because they'd still be standing around, brest-feeding shovels and drinking tea

"Rubbish, the builders did exactly what he ordered. The chateau was probably covered with preservation orders and it would have cost a large fortune to 'renovate' it. Don't forget that 'renovation' requires highly skilled workers using original style materials. Sure he will now rebuild what looks like the original but he doesn't have to worry about getting permission to do anything to the new building."

My thoughts exactly.

Thats true

Story sounds fishy to me....

I must admit my first thought was "insurance job" but reading further it would be interesting how stringent the local authorities would have been on how the building was restored.

Surely just avoiding rules, it would be interesting to see what happens with this over the years, whether the "exact replica" is anything like the original.

Plus the fact the millionaire didn't seem to bothered and isn't going to week damages just shows that it was obviously his intention.
I reckon he will rebuild it but make it armoured inside so that the other mafias can't touch him.

Nathan will probably know of the house I'm taking about in Hockley Heath, owners want to knock down horrible looking big house but are refused planning permission, the house burns down in a big fire and another horrible looking house is built in it's place. It's the second house fire they have had by the way, the first house burnt down in Lady Byron lane in Knowle in similar circumstances.

Yeah, local millionaire here got refused plans to build hotel rooms on one of his pubs, pub burns down shortly after, he rebuilds it with hotel rooms...

What everyone else said.

I'm sure teh builders - regardless of nationality - would have noticed that the house they were demolishing still appeared to be full of furniture with 60" flat screens in the hall etc etc. :roll:
