Hearing about Artois’ fame as a leading man, Emma asked him why he was languishing in a tiny apartment when he should be building a mansion as befits his celebrity status.  Artois hadn’t thought of it.  He was expected to take over the family home after his father’s death.  Emma just gave him a disgusted look and handed him some plans for lavish mansions.

So Artois did a complete rethink, chose a plan he liked and got the builders started on a large block of land just around the corner from Henri.

Progress was quick.  The mansion just needs decorating inside and some landscaping outside.  Pics to come!
