Prince Charles Building Eco Home As Wedding Gift For William?
They’re not even engaged yet, but Prince Charles is placing his bets that by the time his new eco-mansion is built, Prince William and Kate Middleton will have tied the knot. According to reports drifting from across the pond, Charles is knee deep in construction of the new mansion; said to feature solar-powered heating and sheep’s wool insulation. From the article,
“The 790 square-metre home on the England-Wales border will feature solar-powered heating, and insulation made of sheep’s wool. It will also include five bathrooms, a dressing room, a grand dining room, a tree garden, and a hall lined with Greek columns.”
William and Kate are going to have to get busy to fill that place! Five bathrooms? A tree garden? Whoa. The most interesting news? “A spokesman for the royal family told the newspaper that the building will be available on the open market to be rented out when it is completed in 2010.”
I’m thinking an ‘Ecorazzi Ring In The New Year’ bash at the mansion might be a great way to welcome 2011! Who’s with me?
