There is still a long way to go before Dick and Angels 19th Century monument to French country house living can be described as complete. Many of the rooms are still in a state of neglect. And in the surrounding grounds, there are many outbuildings that are in dire need of attention. Whats more, they are running out of time. They need their fledgling events business to start turning a profit this year, or their bucolic dream could come to a grinding halt. Dick and Angel have no shortage of bookings for weddings and events, but they need to invest in the facilities to make their guests happy. They are determined that 2017 will be the year they not only create a perfect venue, but are careful enough with the coffers to go into profit. Specific projects include restoring a rickety back staircase that will take guests up to more rooms on the second floor, transforming their own family suite of rooms into a circus and safari fantasy, to stimulate the childrens imaginations. They also intend to renovate the ginormous 19th Century barn, so that Angels parents, Jenny and Steve, can move on to the estate. And they want to turn the walled garden into a productive enterprise, yielding vegetables and flowers. But most importantly, they intend to bed down further into French culture, to realize their dreams of creating a new life in the Pays De La Loire. 2017 is going to be a year of extraordinary growth, graft and deadlines. But have they bitten off more than they can chew?
