Residents of a sleepy French village in Bordeaux have been left dumbfounded after discovering their local 18th-century chateau was completely bulldozed "by mistake."

Maybe we should start a 'News of the Unbelievably Stupid' board.

I sure hope the construction company has great insurance.

Yeah, that happens in California, when a "Historic House" is bought by someone that wants the land, but not the house.

You can't legally renovate the house out of it's historical period (lots of regulation about it), so the contractor has an "oops" moment, and Mr. Software Mogul gets a house built to his (or her) specs. Usually with a two-story "great hall" and a fan window over the front door.

Same thing with "protected" woods in Texas… someone comes along at midnight, woods are cut down…

If they rebuild it now in 200 years the building will be known as the 21st century building. At one time that building was new. Just saying.
