Dude working on his castle in France. The tradition of Castle building goes back, oh , I would say 100 to 200 years when wealthy gentry in England and France decided they needed 'old' ruins of castle or such on their land to create the impression of an 'old' family lineage or add to the appeal of the property (I mean, who wouldn,t want a crumbling wall on their property). It's sorta changed in the late 19th century and on throu to today. Castle were constructed to appear like medieval castles but with all modern conveniences. Now it's straight medieval from construction techniques to cold mutton for dinner.
