It really is a magnificent house. I truly can't imagine such an undertaking. Was I completely out of touch growing up? My preoccupations were so removed. I love the accomplishment it represents, but would I enjoy all that work? My god – the upkeep of a place like that! I'd much rather just have the car and half the home. I looked at Stuart sitting in the entry, and he looked somewhat uncomfortable. Perhaps I was projecting. The thing is, I might enjoy the process, but the actual dwelling day to day? It will definitely be warmer with furniture. One hopes.
