The Most Heartwarming Renovation Story I Have Ever Heard

By Elizabeth Finkelstein. I AM SOOOOO EXCITED!!! Way back in 2013, CIRCA featured, as one of our Friday Fixer-Uppers, a 9,000 sq. ft. home in Emporia, Kansas that needed (let’s put it lightly) just a bit of rehabbing. Well, someone actually bought this house, and is indeed fixing it up, and suffice it to say he is one TRULY inspiring person. I’m so excited to share with you my conversation with the fabulous Ross MacTaggert, who has been blogging all about the renovation of the magnificent Cross House at RestoringRoss.com.

Constructed in the mid 1700’s, Château de Gudanes commands attention snuggled up against the soft green hills near the small village of Château-Verdun in the south of France. Few of us can imagine seriously shopping online for an enormous French château needing extensive and expensive renovations, yet, that’s how exactly how Craig and Karina Waters found their magical fairytale love. After just one visit to this faded countryside beauty, the Australian family was passionately convinced this forlorn and forgotten, but once magnificent residence, deserved a new life.
